Vacon Will Extend It's Power Range To 5 MW

20 October 2005

AC drives manufacturer Vacon will extend its product offering in the high-end powers from 3 MW to 5 MW. The power range extension complements Vacon's product offering in the low voltage area and is part of the Group's main value discipline, product leadership.

Vacon offers AC drive solutions from 0.25 kW to 5 MW in the entire low voltage area for various customer needs. Up to 2 MW units are available as air- or liquid-cooled versions; units above 2 MW are liquid-cooled.

At Vacon, product leadership means the combination of a wide product range, state-of-the-art drives know-how in both technology and business, customer orientation, and pioneering technology, says Mr Vesa Laisi, President and CEO, Vacon Group.

Vacon's other strategic choices include 100% focus on AC drives, multi-channel sales as well as efficient and flexible operating methods, he concludes. As an independent supplier with the most complete offering, Vacon is a major player in the AC drives market.

With the extended power range, we will secure the company's future growth and improve the competitive edge, especially among OEM and end-customers as well as system integrator partners, says Mr Heikki Hiltunen, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Vacon Group.

In high-end solutions, the control of a 5 MW AC induction motor with a low voltage (690 V) AC drive is a notable technical achievement: 5 MW is close to a maximum power available from any single motor.

In applications requiring motor powers higher than 5 MW, typically, parallel motors are used.
