 Project objective

About 40% of the electricity worldwide is consumed by rotating electrical machines. However most of the electrical machines are not working at the optimum point from a process efficiency perspective. The electricity demand is growing and simultaneously greenhouse gas emissions must be significantly cut every year according to global agreements and regional terms of legislation. Cost-effective high efficiency motor development is highly required. SpinDrive provides highly efficient turn-key drivetrains (INLET), supported by frictionless magnetic bearings, for Original Equipment Manufacturers. INLET increases OEMs solutions’ system efficiency by at least 10%, reduce material consumption and simplify an equipment installation process. INLET lowers the customer’s lifecycle costs by 35%. INLET reduces energy losses in the machine by half. For a 500-kW unit, this solution mitigates 200 tons of CO2 emissions annually and enables 4-year payback time. INLET enables 20 years of maintenance-free operations and saves on average more than 500 000 EUR on the maintenance costs during the product lifetime. INLET is completely oil-free, which allows OEM customers to enter rapidly growing markets and ensure an alignment with a contaminant-free environmental strategy. Compared with the other magnetic bearing providers, SpinDrive can design the entire drivetrain and make it more cost efficient. Our sensor and controller technology enable 70% lower cost level and competitive pricing of delivered products. SpinDrive is a spin-off of Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland, founded in 2015. Our INLET innovation builds upon the high-speed technology research at the university during the past 35 years. INLET has already reached TRL7 and a solid SMEI-1 feasibility study will guide our future growth as it will be used to acquire deep understanding of the market, competitors, customer segments, end-users and stakeholders and enable us to reach TRL 9 through the SMEI-2 by 2021.
