The presentation was a complete study of the upgrade that could be made on large electrical rotating equipment to increase the life span and efficiency making it comparable to that of a brand new machine with the latest technologies. As electric motors consume a large chunk of electrical energy comparatively (53% globally and 70% in the industry), this shows that improving the efficiency of these machines even by a mere 1% will significantly and directly reduce carbon emission to the atmosphere. It also reduces the downtime of procuring a new machine, it is cost effective and increases the recycling industry within Malaysia.
The study also shows that most international standards do not cover countries with tropical weather as they represent only 7% of the worldwide industry. It has been decided that the study that was made in Malaysia with PETRONAS, will be used as the enabler for revisions to the relevant the international standards.
Mr Kirk Jean Belian has also been elected as a board member of EASA Europe and the rest of the world.
