VNCI shares best practice on high efficiency motors
16 Aug 2017

Improving the efficiency of electric motors and the equipment they drive can save energy, reduce operating costs, and improve the company’s productivity by minimizing unscheduled downtime which also represents savings. The Association of the Dutch Chemical Industry (VNCI) has put together a set of key advices and regulatory details to consider when changing industrial motors.

Changing motors, the good timing

Motors are costly devices and changing them for more efficient ones may represent a heavy investment. In order to optimise return-on-investment, energy-efficient motors should be considered in the following circumstances:
• For all new installations
• When purchasing equipment such as compressors, HVAC systems, and pumps
• When major modifications are made to facilities or processes
• Instead of rewinding older, standard efficiency units
• To replace oversized motors
• As part of a preventive maintenance or energy conservation program.

Regulatory and financial aspects

VNCI Best practice on high-efficiency motors document provides a set of 4 key recommendations to best manage the replacement of improvement of industrial motors.
This document also includes a regulatory update on the entry into force of different European efficiency standards according to motor’s power. Finally, financial savings and pay-out-time estimations will also support preliminary investment assessment.

You can find the table above and all the details described above in the following document:
