Hänel EcoDrive®

CO2 reductions thanks to efficient energy recovery

The Hänel Lean-Lift® EcoDrive®, showcased at CeMAT 2008 for the first time, saves energy costs and protects the environment

Dwindling resources, increased environmental pollution and CO2 emissions along with rising energy prices – these are problems that companies today are increasingly confronted with.

The new Hänel EcoDrive® helps to save energy and consequently to reduce costs.

A new kind of frequency converter uses the energy of the descending extractor and converts it back into electrical energy. This is then fed back into the supply system and can be used elsewhere, for example on other Lean-Lifts® in a network.

Depending on the traversing rate, up to 40 % of the energy fed in previously for the upward run can be returned to the supply network!
