About the Company

“VDM-tekhnika” LLC performs R&D and pilot production of electric motors and electric generators based on the synchronous electric machines with the permanent magnet excitation, power and control electronics, electric drives, small wind turbines and micro hydro plants. The company has skilled staff with many years of experience in solving scientific and productive problems.
"VDM-tekhnika" LLC has scientific and design departments, cutting-edge testing and pilot production bases, successfully exploits more than 20 years of technological advance in the form of the results of research, development and engineering works for use in products for various purpose.
The inventions of "VDM-tekhnika" refers to a new stage of development of smart electro-mechanical drive systems and are based on R&D aimed at reducing the weight and dimensions, the use of advanced conducting, magnetic and insulating materials.
"VDM-tekhnika" LLC is a participant of the Technology platform "Promising renewable energy technologies". The project to develop wind turbine generators for a more efficient use of wind energy is included in the strategic program of research conducted by the technology platform.
"VDM-tekhnika" LLC is a resident of the innovation center Skolkovo, has the ability to use scientific infrastructure facilities and scientific equipment of Center.
In 2015-2017 the Project co-financed by the Skolkovo Foundation was implemented. The designed wind turbine VDM for high efficient operating in the extended range of wind speeds, including the areas with the average annual wind speed (Vave) of 3-6 m/s, was created.
Implemented technical solutions provide efficient power takeoff and conversion of the low-potential wind flow energy.
In course of the Project on the test site in St. Petersburg wind monitoring was held (IEC 61400-2) and field test of wind turbine was conducted (IEC 61400-12-1) with the use of hardware and software complex including wind measuring complex. International Project expertise was conducted by DNV GL.
The prototype of the small wind turbine with a rated wind speed of 7 m/s was designed and tested on the basis of innovative technologies. The wind turbine has unique competitive advantages in the segment of "small" winds. For the sites with an average annual wind speed of 4 m/s, the capacity factor is 32%, and cost of electricity is 3 times lower than the competitors.
The wind turbine capacity factor for the sites with an average annual wind speed from 5 to 10 m/s is 50-60%, this value is unprecedentedly high for small wind turbines.
International applications PCT/RU2015/000918 and PCT/RU2016/000868 "The method of wind motor power takeoff” for obtaining patents for invention have been filed. The development "The system of wind motor power takeoff" was awarded with the Gold Medal at the 44th International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva (Switzerland) in April 2016.
New wind turbines up to 100 kW, adapted to the cold climate, may be successfully used as a part of hybrid power supply systems for objects and settlements in the remote and inaccessible areas.
The results of the Project confirm the possibility of wind turbines efficient operation for the sites with a low average annual wind speed of 3-6 m/s (at least 70% of the land surface) and create the prerequisites for the formation of a new segment of the global wind energy market.
"VDM-tekhnika" LLC is a member of the Russian Association of Wind Power Industry (RAWI) and American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
