    Saving energy with industrial drives

    Electric motors and drives consume up to 70 percent of the energy used in industrial plants. Siemens’ industrial motors help conserve resources due to improved efficiency.

    Industrial drives

In many booming African industries, including the metals, cement, water, and mining industry our products and technical expertise in industrial engineering have been in great demand. For example, Africa’s largest copper mine, Equinox Minerals Lumwana Mine in Zambia, recently received medium-voltage industrial drives for pumping applications from Siemens.

Providing clean water is a major challenge for African industries and countries. Here Siemens is playing a significant role, for example, by providing switchgears to the Kaduna State Ministry of Water Resources in Nigeria. Siemens automation solutions helped manage the Komati Water Scheme Augmentation project in South Africa, and Siemens automation is a key solution for water treatment and distribution in several Moroccan cities.
