Invertek variable frequency drives steal show at global marine event

Invertek Drives USA received an exceptionally high number of quality enquiries regarding our variable frequency drives at the recent Electric and Hybrid Marine World Expo which took place in Florida.
The latest product developments from Invertek Drives were showcased to key decision makers from the global marine industry including the high-performance Optidrive P2, Optidrive ECO Pump and the brand new general purpose Optidrive E3.

The latter is the latest drive to be released - delivering reliability, high performance and efficiency in a compact, easy to use unit which is ideal for marine environments – and proved to be a big draw among those attending the event.

Tim Perfetto, Head of Invertek Drives USA, who attended the event, said “The international shipping industry has been hit by far-reaching legislation which penalises those with high CO2 emissions. By matching the speed of the motor with the needs of the application,Optidrives can significantly reduce these emissions and thus lower these tax bills.
