Mumbai: Siemens Ltd. has been awarded the prestigious BEE ‘Star’ rating label for their energy efficient motors from the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (Ministry of Power, Government of India).

Initially this label would appear on 8 models of Siemens’ Three-Phase Induction Motors. These motors are used in almost all sectors ranging from farming to metal producing industries. This accreditation received by Siemens marks a pioneering accomplishment in the arena of industrial motors.

With this rating, the induction motors from Siemens join a distinguished league of FMCG appliances such as refrigerators, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and air-conditioners, all valued for their conformance to the highest level of energy efficient performance.

The unique endorsement label series allotted for the Siemens equipment is BEE/SIL/0556/09.

Mr. Vijay Paranjape, Director Siemens Ltd said, "We are extremely proud to have received this accreditation from the Bureau of Energy Efficiency. The BEE ‘Star’ label rating is a recognition of Siemens’ persistent efforts to propagate energy efficient motors over the last decade and a confirmation of efforts to increase our ‘Green Portfolio’ As we endeavor to provide maximum value to our clients, our products are setting benchmarks for reliability and efficiency in almost all sectors. Going forward, we will continue to develop energy-saving motors that can fit into virtually every range of industrial application."

Reflecting on the accreditation, Mr. J.K Verma, Vice President, Drives Technologies, Siemens Ltd. said, “In any industry, the electric motor consumes a significant proportion of the total energy used in the operations. Thus, any motor that conserves energy and guarantees dynamic performance can result in huge savings. The BEE label authenticates the energy efficiency performance of Siemens’ EFF1 and EFF2 motors”.

Siemens Drive Technologies division has also developed the computer-based software PEP (Payback Estimation Program), which computes energy savings for individual motors or project requirements depending on users need. It also indicates how long it takes for an investment to pay off.
