Low voltage motor scrappage scheme available from Siemens
13 July 2011
From August 1 to December 31 2011, Siemens Industry Automation & Drive Technologies (IA&DT) will be running a motor scrappage scheme to ease the associated costs of the EU MEPS (European Minimum Energy Performance Standard) scheme which came into force on 16 June. The new legislation prevents the manufacture and sale of standard electric motors under IE2 (Eff1) class.
All customers can claim a fixed allowance against any LV motors from any manufacturer through Siemens’ nationwide network of partners if they purchase a new Siemens IE2 motor from a partner. The partner will then collect the scrap motor.
Andrew Peters, divisional director for Drive Technologies at Siemens IA&DT, said his company had launched the motor scrappage scheme to help industrial customers deal with this new legislation.
"We are offering this unique opportunity for all new and existing customers and hope that, combined with the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme, it provides an opportunity for them to replace inefficient motors while reducing the payback period. Electric motors are responsible for up to 70 per cent of energy use in industry, so it is clear that replacing the most inefficient motors can achieve tangible savings for our customers.”
