A petrochemical refinery in Brazil is turning up the steam to meet increased domestic demand by becoming the first crude oil refinery to be entirely built with Brazilian technology. This includes WEG motors at the heart of one of their core processes.
Responsible for 33% of the sugar produced in the country, Ingenio Valdez will from now operate with a completely automatized extraction process. Besides increasing the processing capacity, the company will save more energy and inputs.
WEG Ex d motors are among the first to be granted the international Certificate of Conformity for equipment used in explosive atmospheres. The company was the setting for the first IEC Ex BR meeting held at a manufacturer’s facilities.
