WEG, the global manufacturer of electrical motors and drives, will exhibit its latest products and technologies at the Egypt Energy Show (EGYPES), taking place from 19-21 February at the Egypt International Exhibition Center in Cairo, Egypt

WEG will present its high-efficiency motors, innovative variable speed drives (VSDs) and digital solutions to support sustainability in Hall 1, Stand 1 E50.

Following the company’s debut at EGYPES last year, WEG will be returning to unveil its WG20 range of helical geared motors, which incorporate cylindrical gears with helical teeth, and are designed to optimise power transmission across various industrial applications. 

WEG will also present the CFW900 variable speed drive (VSD). The CFW900 is designed to be controlled through a human machine interface (HMI), including a menu with detailed parameters so operators can control a motor’s torque, speed and position with higher precision. The device is now also equipped with Bluetooth, enabling operators to control torque, speed and position remotely through mobile devices. 

The CFW900’s Ethernet port allows improved data sharing with WEG’s Motion Fleet Management (MFM), a cloud-based digital platform for real-time asset monitoring and operational control, which supports the International Electrotechnical Commission System for Certification to Standards Relating to Equipment for Use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx) system.

“WEG is not just a motors and drives manufacturer,” said Ahmed ElShayal, regional business manager for oil and gas in the Middle East and Egypt at WEG, and general manager at WEG Egypt. “Energy saving is a top initiative for us through the use of high efficiency motors and advanced technology VSDs, which have become a key factor for reducing the CO2 footprint. 

“We're a key player in the broader digital and sustainable solutions landscape, offering solar, wind, and hydro power generation equipment and even electric vehicle charging stations. Our focus is on efficiency and sustainability to align with the evolving needs of the petroleum sector, while helping businesses to increase their productivity and optimise their processes.”

Also making its debut at EGYPES will be WEG’s new ADV200-SP solar pump drive, designed for remote areas and off-the-grid applications including driving centrifugal and submersible pumps. This converts electrical energy supplied by a photovoltaic (PV) panel into mechanical energy, which is then converted into hydraulic energy by the pump.

WEG has a longstanding presence in the Egyptian market and is strengthening its commitment with the establishment of a commercial branch in Egypt, which will be operational at the beginning of 2024.
