AC energy drive

Vacon and PPT Drive Systems have joined forces to offer energy efficient solutions based on variable speed AC drives. The partnership offers free site surveys, energy saving calculations and complete solutions to tackle climate change.

According to Vacon, using variable speed drives (VSDs) to control the speed of motors delivers energy savings in industrial and commercial applications. Despite this, less than one in ten electric motors in the world is fitted with a VSD.

The partnership between Vacon and PPT Drive Systems aims to offer customers from all industrial segments the opportunity to see how energy efficient drives can reduce energy usage and cut their energy bills. The collaboration may benefit an array of different businesses, including hospitals, supermarkets, banks, airports, water treatment sites, offshore oil and gas applications and manufacturers.

‘Vacon is one of the world’s leading AC drive manufacturers, and PPT specialises in the applications of VSD products and systems,’ said Richard Horsman of PPT Drive Systems comments. ‘The partnership between us offers a solid resource, and by tackling climate change through energy efficient drive systems, we can offer our customers versatile solutions and substantial cost savings.’
