Drive Technology


Shorter project execution times – higher degree of reliability

High voltage motors employing a modular cooling concept in with welded steel enclosure (shaft height 450 up to 560 mm on request) for applications in sectors such as oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, steel, shipbuilding, cement, fiber, water & wastewater and power generation. Project execution times are sped up as a result of the short delivery times and the fact that these motors can be simply engineered to address the application. Due to the flexible concept, the motor can be precisely adapted to the appropriate application. This is complemented by outstanding reliability, a high degree of mechanical stiffness as well as a weight-optimized and noise-dampening design.
