System solutions made in Europe
WEG extends its activities on the European market and has launched production of the MVW3000 series of modular variable speed drive systems also in Portugal.
A special feature of these variable speed drives for voltages from 2.3 kV to 8 kV and power levels from 280 kW to 2400 kW is that they are offered as package systems integrated into an electrical cabinet, consisting of an isolating switch, protective devices, multi-level feed transformer and frequency inverter. They can be combined with WEG low voltage and medium voltage motors to form efficient drive solutions.
“As a drive technology manufacturer with a worldwide presence, WEG has been producing integrated automation and switchgear cabinet systems for a long time already, and now we are also producing them in Europe. By manufacturing industrial drive systems in Portugal, we strengthen our position in the European market. Production in Europe has important advantages for us: the manufactured drive and automation systems inherently fulfil all European standards, and we achieve even faster delivery times for application-specific system solutions. Customer acceptances with European companies can also be carried out significantly faster and easier”, explains Johannes Schwenger, Head of Product Management Europe for Low and Medium Voltage Drive Systems at WEG.
