Siemens surpasses motor milestone with UltraTech order
Published: 17 December 2014


Siemens Limited announced that it has surpassed a key milestone in manufacturing and delivering International Efficiency (IE) class industrial motors by handing the 100,000th motor to UltraTech Cement Ltd. in India. This translates to energy savings of 300GWh, which is equivalent to the power required by 80,000 average Indian households for an entire year, since the launch of the motors in January 2012, Siemens said in a statement.

Siemens Ltd was the first company in India to launch locally-manufactured IE2 and IE3 efficiency class energy efficient industrial motors. These motors are capable of offering energy savings of up to 10 per cent depending on the frame sizes when used in place of standard efficiency (IE1) motors, the company added.
