Mr Nakul Mehta of Bharat Bijlee Ltd & Mr. Leiza Berastegui Francisco Javier of M/s. Permanent Magnets, S.A., Spain at the signing of the agreement.
On 24th July 2007 Bharat Bijlee signed a technology transfer agreement with Permanent Magnets SA (PERMAGSA) of Spain. PERMAGSA has given Bharat Bijlee exclusive rights, in India and neighbouring countries, for manufacturing and marketing of gearless machines for elevators.
The gearless machine, which is powered by a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), represents the state of art in elevator technology - especially for the Machine Roomless (MRL) segment. BBL is well positioned to leverage its 30 long years synergy of manufacturing and marketing elevators and their motors.
Bharat Bijlee is the only Indian company which can provide the permanent magnet motor technology, the variable frequency drive and an in depth understanding of elevator technology; all in one package.
