Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel stopped by the booth of German drive manufacturer NORD Drivesystems on their tour of select exhibitors after jointly opening the 2013 Hannover Messe.
Since the country’s last turn as high-profile partner of the world’s leading industrial fair in 2005, Russia has witnessed a surge in awareness for sustainable business practices, environmentally sound technology and green growth strategies. NORD, a renowned provider of high efficiency drive solutions was therefore selected as a port of call for the two leaders on their brief round of visits to major German brands and industrial innovators at the exhibition.
Constituting core components of machines and plants with a major bearing on their total energy requirements, electric drives play a crucial role throughout all industrial sectors.
NORD is showcasing a drive solution for conveyors at their booth in Hanover Messe. Based on integrated drive units that boast particularly low consumption, each of these full-fledged drive units combines a geared motor complying with the strictest current energy efficiency classification, IE4 (Super Premium Efficiency), with a motor-mounted frequency inverter delivering versatile drive control. These drives were the subject of discussion between Merkel, Putin, and NORD’s top management team.
Optimising conveying technology is a particularly effective step in the implementation of new, economically viable and ecologically progressive solutions. NORD also supplies a wide range of efficient geared motors for various other applications as well as a comprehensive portfolio of suitable power electronics.
NORD has set up a new manufacturing site in Saint Petersburg to further enhance NORD’s service and delivery performance for Russian customers. NORD also maintains a nationwide presence throughout the country with bases in another seven Russian cities.
