Vacon Opens Office in Brazil

Friday, November 02, 2007
The AC drives manufacturer Vacon has inaugurated its office in São Paulo, Brazil to support its customers in Brazil and South America. With growing energy consumption, Brazil and South America in general are lucrative markets for energy-saving Vacon AC drives. Brazil is one of the world's major producers of sugar and ethanol, and it is estimated that 60 new sugar cane plants will be running by 2010. Brazil is the 10th largest energy consumer in the world and the largest in South America. Vacon variable speed AC drives bring considerable energy savings and improve process control. These two major benefits provide a huge market potential in South American countries, where the energy infrastructure is being built up and blackouts are frequent. Companies are increasingly adopting the AC drives technology to reduce energy costs. Additionally, complex applications in many industries are using AC drives to gain better efficiency. This is likely to sustain the low-voltage drives market in the coming years.
