Electric motor-drive systems: solutions to reduce capital investment and Life Cycle Costs
> Power rating: 500 – 75.000 kW
> Voltage: up to 15 kV
Nidec has consolidated experience in high speed machines systems with demonstrated performance out in the field of more than twenty years. The use of an electric-drive solution rather than a gas turbine offers significant savings in OPEX and downtime for maintenance. They can also be an important element in reducing CO2 emissions. Nidec has long been recognized for its custom engineering capabilities. In addition to its expertise in high speed machines, the company also has a vast experience in designing machines for direct coupling which eliminates the need for a gear box. Another area where the company has been highly successful – electric motor-drive systems for slurry pumps. Helping customers identify solutions that reduce their overall capital investment and contribute to reducing Life Cycle Costs, is an important part of our corporate strategy.
This rated 650 kW @ 10,000 r/min (peak power: 1 MW @14000 r/min) has demonstrated outstanding performance in terms of efficiency and vibration levels across its entire speed range. The motor is state-of-the-art technology using Holbach technology. This makes it one of the most innovative machines on the market today. However, its key strength lies in the fact that the machine was designed using a high level of standard components. This robust machine is ideal for the offshore market thanks to its compact design. Moreover, the machine can be water cooled using whatever water happens to be on hand. The rotor design is highly resistant to corrosion and dirt. Nided Industrial Solutions is convinced that these intrinsic features will also guarantee longer uptime and lower maintenance costs. The motor, coupled with one of Nided Industrial Solutions’s variable speed drives, offers near unity efficiency.
