6600 V Squirrel cage motor for a pump at Suez Canal

Customer: Sluice gate in Egypt

MENZEL supplied a 6,600 V 3-phase squirrel cage motor as a pump drive for a sluice gate on the Suez Canal in Egypt. The new motor of the MENZEL squirrel cage series MEBKGR was built as an exchange for an old IC 511 motor. Its operational area at a sluice in the Suez Canal requires precise monitoring. The new 3-phase AC cage motor from MENZEL has therefore been designed in such a way that all monitoring electronics can be read directly on the motor as well as on the control circuit of the pump.
