Enedym Inc. Announces Strategic Partnership with Smartricity Inc. to Develop the Ventium Wind Pitch Switched Reluctance Motor (“SRM")
Enedym Inc. (“Enedym”), a technology company that develops next generation switched reluctance motors (SRMs), electric propulsion, and electrified powertrains, today announced a strategic partnership with Smartricity Inc. (“Smartricity”), a smart industrial electric motor and software company. The partnership will help deliver next generation wind pitch motors and related technology to materially increase efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness.
Utilizing Enedym’s unique SRM technology, Ventium – whose name is a combination of the Latin words for wind (Ventus) and power (Imperium) – increases the reliability and efficiency of wind turbines, which leads to an increase in energy production. Over time, increased wind energy production will displace fossil fuel electricity generation, resulting in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, increased efficiency of wind turbines reduces the cost of wind energy, making investments in clean wind energy more attractive. Enedym and consortium partner Smartricity, were recently awarded $2.4 million by Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) to commercialize and advance the Ventium wind pitch motor technology.
As part of the collaboration, Enedym and Smartricity will work to maximize the contribution that wind energy can make by addressing a major weakness in turbines: low availability and capacity factor due to unreliable and outdated wind pitch drive systems in 1.X-2.X MW models. The pitch systems in the 1.X-2.X are one of the largest contributors to turbine downtime, with studies showing over 30% of failures directly related to these systems.
Dr. Ali Emadi, Founder, President, and CEO of Enedym said, “We are pleased to announce this agreement with Smartricity and jointly reach our goal to ensure wind power infrastructure can run more efficiently, reliably, and economically. Global appetite for clean energy is projected to accelerate dramatically, both to reduce reliance on foreign fossil fuel-based power generation and to ensure geo-political risks are reduced. We are eager to partner and work with Smartricity, industry leaders, and renewable energy companies to drive the innovation that will move us towards a greener and more secure future.”
Michael Sonsogno, Co-Founder and CEO of Smartricity, said, “Smartricity has built an arsenal of revolutionary motor technologies from around the world and paired it with our team’s expert application knowledge to address major weaknesses in the Renewables, HVAC, Mining, Oil and Gas, and Industrial Manufacturing industries. In the Wind Pitch application, SRM was the clear winner when combined with our real-world field insights to produce the Ventium Wind Pitch SRM.”
