- Received energy efficiency certificate on major products from Tuv, German for the first time in Korean market
- The remarkable effect of Hyundai’s regenerative elevator inverter, ‘LOWATT’ ? Saving electricity bill about U$500 yearly from elevator operation in 30 story building
- CEO Song, “World class product competitiveness in environment-friendly & energy saving”
To reduce energy consumption of buildings, there are trials to put energy efficiency grade on elevators like appliances & vehicles.
Hyundai Elevator Co., Ltd. declared on Aug. 9th that they acquired ‘A’ class (the best-in-class system) energy efficiency certificate from German institute(Tuv) on Hyundai’s major products including 10mps ultra high speed elevator for the first time in Korean market.
Elevator energy efficiency class VDI 4707 Part 1, introduced by The Association of German Engineers(VDI, Verein Deutscher Ingenirure) and certified by TUV (German safety monitoring institute), is classified into 7 grades from A to G (A is least consumption) after evaluating service hours, energy consumption during operation and average travel distance.
Hyundai Elevator explains that “the acquisition of ‘A’ class energy efficiency certificate is derived from regenerative inverter LOWATT, our core technology. which saves energy consumption drastically.”
Hyundai’s LOWATT could increase the energy efficiency up to 77.5% by returning its regenerated energy during elevator operation, to building lighting and climate control system.
Also, Hyundai awarded NeT(New Excellent Technology) certificate from Ministry of Science & Technology on its world first elevator inverter LOWATT by removing the electrolytic condenser the Hyundai engineers were able to reduce its size and extends its lifespan much longer.
Hyundai revealed that “In case of 30 story building, elevator of ‘A’ class energy efficiency (with LOWATT inverter) could save its electricity bill up to U$500 yearly.
Currently, there is no Korean standard to measure elevator energy efficiency. However, energy efficiency class indication system promoted by government is spreaded with a green campaign in the construction business area.
Hyundai anticipates that they could meet customers expectation of environment-friendly building through their acquisition of ‘A’ class energy efficiency certificate which effected on their main products and brand like THE EL(Ultra high speed elevator), LUXEN(Digital gearless elevator), YZER(Machineroomless elevator).
Mr. Jin Chul, Song, CEO of this company, emphasized that “This acquisition of energy efficiency certificated based on international standard proves our world class elevator technology is of environment-friendly” and “We would spur the development of green products continuously”<< Back to News List
