ABB is pleased to announce Tyrone Varga’s nomination as head of its Large Motors & Generators Division in Canada. Tyrone will be responsible for leading the efforts to support the Sales & Marketing for Large Motors and Generators and integrate with ABB’s existing Motion business team.

“I am very excited to join the ABB team to help develop and grow the Large Motors & Generators business in Canada. When they say the motor business is in your blood, they are right! Stepping away from it has driven me to appreciate the business even more. I look forward to connecting with old and new customers. I want our Canadian customers to know that we are always there whenever they need us,” declares an enthusiastic Varga.

Tyrone envisions the electric motor business as a significant driver in a greener, cleaner economy. “Many global green ideas are driven around electrification, as up to 45% of the world energy will power an electric motor,” he explains. On a more philosophical note, Varga adds: “Mechanical power will drive the world, electric power can help make it be a greener world, and electric motors are right in the middle of the two as we convert electric to mechanical power. For example, the goal is to convert engine-driven to electrification in the Gas Industry, which in the end, can significantly help reduce the carbon footprint.”

Tyrone brings over 20 years of experience in sales and market development in the electric motor industry in North America. His previous roles include senior positions at Shermco Industries and TECO-Westinghouse Motors in both Canada and the U.S. “I am confident that our partners and customers in Canada will benefit from his experience and leadership,” says Daniel Cotton, VP of ABB Motion business.

Tyrone is an active member of the IEEE. He has attended and held volunteer positions on local committees for PCIC (Petroleum and Chemical Industry Committee) since 2005. From 2008 to 2019, Varga has actively supported API sub-committee for motors in the development of API546, API541 and API547 standards. Tyrone is a graduate of the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (S.I.A.S.T.)

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
