Named the “AbM Drive,” this innovation replaces old, traditional gearboxes that are known to wear out within 2 years. Designed to last 10-12 years, the AbM Drive operates with high efficiency, has no gears, does not suffer from harmonic vibrations and is far quieter.
As a result, this innovation is positioned to revolutionize the renewable energy industry by providing a much more cost effective solution to the technology currently employed.
“The AbM Drive is unique in that it actually uses no gears, but rather a number of rotating plates which will not wear out in the same timeframe during which wind turbine gearboxes typically deteriorate,”
Attia, an aerospace engineering professor at Embry-Riddle University, teamed up with Embry-Riddle graduate Marko Ivankovic to independently develop an application solution for the aerospace industry. With ongoing softness in new investment in that industry, the duo refocused the project with the help of the UCF Business Incubator Program toward wind generation, which is now the leading source of new electricity-
“An innovation such as this is just one of the ways to engage AbM Engineering,”
The company is looking for partners to accelerate the retrofit of existing wind turbines with the new product.
