On August 1, 2019, the "Portaria Interministerial Nº 1, DE 29 DE JUNHO DE 2017" of the Ministry of Mining and Energy (Ministério de Minas e Energia – MME) goes into effect in Brazil. The regulation governs the maximum energy consumption and efficiency of motors and machines. According to the new minimum requirements, all 3-phase asynchronous motors from 0.12 to 370 kW sold after the August 1 date must fulfill the efficiency class "Alto Rendimento Plus – IR3" (corresponding to IE3).

Exceptions to this rule are motors for intermittent operation, switchable pole motors, motors that are exclusively suitable for operation with frequency inverters as well as motors for explosion hazard areas. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has extended its portfolio accordingly and has developed new IR3 motors with powers from 0.12 to 55 kW for the Brazilian market.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS BRASIL LTDA was founded on July 5, 1999 and celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
