Wind onshore

Work progress

The construction of two generators has been launched: the aim is to perform tests "head to tail" to achieve scale tests, a machine running as a motor driving the other operating as a generator.

The design phase of the generator and associated manufacturing tools resulted in June 2009 on the construction of two machines of 800 kW at 24 rpm (36 000 kNm), one air cooled and one water cooled.

In parallel, close contacts were made with the main suppliers of components: blades (Euros), main bearing (Rothe Erde), controller (Mita). Wind experts are working with DDIS wind for the calculation of structures.

In January 2011, DDIS erected its wind turbine prototype DDIS60 at Onnaing, in the North of France. Located in “Parc d’Activités de la Vallée de l’Escaut”, on the ground of the company Delquignies, the DDIS60, 50 meters height and 60 meters of diameter, is a class III-A wind turbine with a power of 800kW.

On the base of this first wind turbine, one of the objectives of DDIS is to license its Technology to manufacturers in Europe and also in India and America.
