ABB wins on efficiency

ABB Motors has won the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Hi-Motors Competition. The Hi-Motors Competition recognises manufacturers that bring motors with higher efficiency than any before them to market.

The competition jury set out to find electric motors that cut losses by 25-50% compared to average motors. The 3-phase, 4-pole, 1500rpm motor – the most common type on the market – was selected as the competition product. Two motors from ABB met these demanding requirements, and were awarded the IEA Award of Excellence.
