Standardized Motor Design for Quick Availability

Siemens’ new Simotics HV high-voltage motor series covers a power range up to 70 megawatts (MW), can be used for a wide range of applications, and can reportedly be built and commissioned rapidly. The system features an optimized base frame, which reduces noise and vibrations and makes the motor able to cope with extreme ambient conditions, helping to maximize the availability of the overall plant, the company reported. All the models of the Simotics HV HP series are available as synchronous or induction motors, in a high- or low-temperature version, with gas and dust explosion protection and with a wide variety of cooling methods. The motor series complies with a wide number of industry and country- specific certification requirements such as API, TR CU, CSA and NEMA.
