Renewable Energy Solutions

Renewable energy is one of the most exciting and fast-paced areas in industry, with new projects being developed all the time with the aim of fuelling our future and powering our progress with sustainable energy solutions.

Linear Induction Motor and permanent magnet solutions from Force Engineering can be used as induction generators in a variety of renewable energy solutions, including:

  • Geothermal power
  • Wind power
  • Small-scale hydropower
  • Tidal power

Passing permanent magnets over a fixed induction motor, or moving induction motors over fixed permanent magnets, induces current in the motor which can then be harnessed and utilised. The simplicity, efficiency and reliability of parts are key benefits in the process of electricity generation.

Working with renewable energy companies, Force Engineering has designed and constructed solutions to replace existing more complex equipment with simpler, more reliable but as effective induction generators. Design work has also been completed for new applications where the use of induction generators is a fundamental element of the overall system.

Key Advantages of Force Engineering Linear Induction Motors to the Project:

  • Simple, efficient systems with no requirement for potentially problematic connecting mechanisms such as chains, gear boxes or belts.
  • LIMs are virtually maintenance free, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
  • LIMs have no moving parts to get clogged and damaged with dirt, swarf and waste
  • LIMs work in the most rugged environments and from extremes of hot to cold
