WEG, a leading global manufacturer of motors and drive technology, will demonstrate at the Water Equipment Show how it reliably partners with major international water companies to help them maintain long-term performance and cost-effective maintenance of assets such as pumps, pumping systems and other associated control equipment and operational activities.
The topic of Totex (total expenditure) management is central to the event as the UK water industry intensifies its preparations to adopt the seventh asset management plans (AMP7) in 2020 and meet Ofwat’s 2019 price review (PR19) requirements, which principally aim to deliver improved water supply resilience and fairer pricing for customers, among other objectives.
Aligned to the Totex theme, WEG plans to showcase its proprietary Motor Scan technology, which closely monitors the performance and condition of WEG motors via capture of real-time operational data to enable more accurate prediction of any required maintenance. It will also present its broader range of WG20 gearboxes and the latest additions to its line of frequency inverters, among other relevant water industry products.
Held in Telford on 16 May, the Water Equipment Show is the Pump Centre’s flagship conference and exhibition. The 2018 event attracted over 1100 visitors, who were able to attend the main conference, participate in a selection of engineering breakout sessions, visit the specialist technical and demonstration areas, and walk around an exhibition made up of over 100 stands from the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers from the water industry.
