Exceeding Energy Efficiency – WEG to Exhibit at EMEX

Exceeding Energy Efficiency – WEG to Exhibit at EMEX
03 November 2021

Electric motor manufacturer WEG will exhibit its range of energy-efficient motors and automation products at EMEX on stand E14.

As an organisation dedicated to providing customers with energy efficiency solutions, WEG will exhibit its WG20 geared motor series. Manufactured with a light aluminium housing, the WG20 motor series delivers high-efficiency performance, without compromising on its sophisticated design. 

WEG will also exhibit its W22 three-phase motor line. This range has been developed to provide high levels of performance, while also ensuring maximum energy efficiency with levels up to IE4 — surpassing current European ecodesign regulations which came into effect on July 1, 2021. 


European Ecodesign Regulations


The new latest legislation means that all three-phase motors with an output between 0.75kW and 1000kW must meet the IE3 standard. International efficiency (IE) indicates how energy efficient a motor is, with IE3 being used for motors with premium levels of efficiency. 

Variable speed drives (VSDs), rated for use with the motors covered by the legislation, are also required to meet their own IE2 standards. This is the first time VSDs have been included in these requirements. 

Despite the requirements coming into action this year, WEG has long adhered to – and exceeded – these rules. In fact, WEG already has a range of safe area motors suitable for industrial applications, which are rated at IE4. 

“There is potential for organisations to make significant energy savings, by reducing carbon emissions through the implementation of efficient technologies,” explained Marek Lukaszczyk, Marketing Manager for Europe and Middle East at WEG.

“WEG’s approach is a brilliant example of employing intelligent design to a product previously renowned for its large energy consumption. Electric motors are widely cited as Europe’s largest consumers of energy, and WEG’s range is enabling users to reduce the environmental impact of their industrial applications. 

“In fact, WEG already contributes to the increase of renewable energy sources in the world. We’ve supplied substations and transformers to a multinational energy sector company for five solar and wind power plants in Brazil, of more than 962.7 MW.”  

To learn more about the range of products offered by WEG, visit EMEX at stand E14, between Halls S3–S5, held in ExCeL, London. Alternatively, you can arrange a meeting in advance by contacting, or visit the website here
