WEG to showcase drives and digital tools for the energy sector at ADIPEC 2022
Global motor and drive manufacturer WEG will exhibit at ADIPEC 2022, the world-leading expo for the oil & gas industry, running from 31 October until 3 November 2022 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in the UAE.
ADIPEC is set to gather the industry’s leading companies to demonstrate the latest technologies, explore market trends and discuss solutions. Exhibiting from stand 11420, WEG will launch the CFW900 – its new variable speed drive (VSD) for the oil & gas sector – and the Motion Fleet Management (MFM) digital tool for asset management, now available to the Middle East market.
The new CFW900 drive
At the show, WEG will demonstrate the new CFW900 drive, an addition to the well-established CFW range of frequency inverters. This range of variable speed drives (VSDs) boasts increased power density, speed control in industrial applications and can be used to greatly improve efficiency in oil, gas and petrochemical applications.
Motion Fleet Management (MFM) tool
The CFW900 collaborates with a range of new digital tools from WEG, including Motion Fleet Management (MFM), another solution that will be demonstrated at the show. MFM is a control and monitoring tool for the operation of industrial assets including compressors, pumps and fans, using cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, which generates valuable real-time insights on motors, drives and other industrial assets. Based on real data, it allows engineers to make informed decisions about the efficiency and effectiveness of assets — leading to improvements in production processes.
WEG Motor Scan
Also being shared at the show is WEG Motor Scan, a remote and intelligent monitoring device for electric motors, which is used within MFM. The technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to diagnose, monitor and indicate predictive maintenance in electric motors, gearboxes, pumps compressors and other plant assets.
Helping oil & gas clients achieve efficiency goals
“Digital technologies are becoming increasingly present in all manufacturing operations, and the oil & gas sector is no exception,” explained Marek Lukaszczyk, Marketing Manager for WEG Europe and the Middle East. “A key part of WEG’s ethos is to help our customers meet their efficiency goals – and the products we are launching at ADIPEC will certainly do this.
“The new digital portfolio from WEG has been developed to fulfil increased customer demand, with the goal to help plant managers improve plant efficiency and better manage maintenance through digital solutions,” he continued.
“ADIPEC provides a crucial platform for the sector to demonstrate climate action and investment through global collaboration and innovation. With COP27 taking place just one week after the show, ADIPEC will kick off the climate conversation,” remarked Mr Lukaszczyk. “WEG looks forward to demonstrating how the technologies can optimise industrial applications by improving energy efficiency.”
WEG’s engineering experts will be available at ADIPEC from stand 11420 to provide technical support and guidance at the show. For questions or a bespoke requirement, please contact WEG Middle East in advance to arrange a meeting at ADIPEC 2022.
