System modernisation and extension

Drives play a decisive role in the transmission of energy and motion. The requirements on performance and reliability are correspondingly high. Benefit from technical progress and bring your drive technology up to date with a system modernisation!

System modernisation is used to update to newer technology, increase efficiency and thus reduce the carbon footprint.

The advantages of system modernisation:

  • Increase performance
  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Extend service life
  • Increase reliability
  • Expand range of functions
  • Minimise maintenance effort
  • Optimise ease of use
  • Reduce costs

Increasing efficiency with system modernisation

With NORD, you have a competent and experienced partner by your side. We know what is important when it comes to system modernisation and support you in every phase of the project. As part of our NORD ECO service , we conduct an energy and performance analysis of your drive technology. Furthermore, we also offer you comprehensive consultation services, design, engineering, installation and commissioning as well as further services over the entire life cycle of the drive.

A selection of our services:

  • Switching to asynchronous motors with higher efficiency class (e.g. IE3)
  • Switching to high-efficiency synchronous motors (IE5+) in combination with a frequency inverter of the latest generation
  • Installation of additional sensor technology (condition monitoring) for drive monitoring
  • Retrofitting of a frequency inverter
  • Replacement of the existing frequency inverter with the latest technology with additional functions (e.g. network connection, remote maintenance)


Total cost reduction
Our goal is to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our customers. This includes all costs associated with the purchase, operation, potential maintenance and recycling of a drive system.

Energy efficiency calculator

Individual calculation for your system
Is a system modernisation beneficial? Compare your system’s efficiency class with the efficient drive solutions from NORD. We will calculate to check when it will be profitable for you to switch to a higher efficiency class.

NORD ECO service

Discover your savings potential
The NORD ECO box gives you a detailed insight into the consumption of your system and uses the resulting analysis to identify ways of reducing your energy requirements.

Update your drives to the latest technical standard!

System modernisation made easy: NORD provides a wide portfolio of high-efficiency motors, gear units and frequency inverters, has experience in more than 100 branches of industry and implements future-proof, scalable drive solutions that are ideally matched to your application requirements.

Construction and engineering

With the comprehensive product solutions from our NORD modular system, we can implement almost every customer application. However, much choice can result in an information overload. Whether digital self-service or personal advice: We support you with the drive design and show you how to succeed in getting the best possible drive system.


With tailor-made service packages, we support you with the commissioning of your NORD drives. We help you with the commissioning of individual drive components or complete drive systems, as well as with their connection to your automation environment. Our service is available by phone, remotely or personally on site.

Condition Monitoring

We support the continuous condition monitoring of our drive solutions with the aid of a wide range of sensors, software architectures and interfaces. This not only allows for permanent data collection and processing but also for predictive maintenance and thus increased efficiency and availability of your drive technology.
