Marand Energy division has previously developed, manufactured and tested some of the world’s most innovative and efficient tidal turbines. The Marand manufactured tidal turbine was the first tidal turbine in the world to return power to grid.

Marand now has the IP and manufacturing expertise to produce the most efficient motors and generators in the world. Our motors consume the least energy of all motors when used to drive cars, motorbikes, and potentially any industrial motor in the world. Marand generators return the most electricity in wind and tidal applications.

Marand has developed two very high efficiency Axial Flux Motors based on the highly successful solar car motor previously designed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

The motors are available in two magnet ring configurations, a steel backing plate surface magnet and a 3 magnet per pole Halbach array.

The motors can be supplied in “rotating housing” or “rotating axle” configurations and the innovative compact design allows configurations multi-stacked elements giving a wide range of performance options. This gives Marand’s customers the most efficient motor, customised exactly to suit their power application requirements.

Marand currently produces commercial applications of this Motor Generator at our Moorabbin Facility for application in Solar race cars, other suitable applications include:

  • Rail
  • Solar race cars
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s)
  • Unmanned ground vehicles (UGV’s)
  • Hybrid / Electric vehicles
  • Vehicle based power generators
  • Wind Turbines
  • Tidal Generators
  • Large Industrial Motors
