ABB India has expanded its production footprint with a new line for variable-speed drive modules at the Peenya factory in Bengaluru. The new line will produce drives ranging from 75 kW to 250 kW and will cater to all major industrial segments.
ABB’s variable-speed drives are used to control the speed of electric motors to match the actual demands of the process to improve energy efficiency and performance in any industrial application or any building globally.
ABB claims its drive can typically reduce power consumption by up to 25% when added to the existing motor of a pump, fan, or compressor.
The new production line is part of the integrated campus that houses ABB’s corporate office and other business factories, and will meet the growing demand of domestic and global customers.
A.R. Madhusudan, president-Drive Products, ABB India, said, “At a time when India is globally playing a leading role in clean energy, drive products represent leading technology of energy efficiency, termed as the first fuel of clean energy transitions. ABB drives manufactured in India will contribute to country’s energy efficiency journey and its goals across industries, buildings, and infrastructure,” he added.
