We can’t possibly imagine a world without energy. We continually strive to exploit any source capable of producing it: from oil, nuclear or coal to renewable, from wind to solar, tide to biofuel or hydrogen. Whatever the energy source, industry is committed to lowering its carbon footprint, to reach net-zero emissions. So are we, through leveraging the power of simulation.
Wind energy offers a sustainable way to reduce risks, to cut emissions, and costs.
Offshore and land wind farms are rapidly increasing in number. These towering structures are designed to withstand the forces of nature, including wind and tide, and convert them into power. Engineers must master a complex system that creates, stores and transfers energy. Blades must use new lightweight materials and undergo in-depth aerodynamic studies. Electric generators, inverters, accumulators, and the entire energy grid must be designed to minimize loss and maximize wind exploitation while reducing downtime and maintenance.
Simulation plays a crucial role in designing the components and in examining the entire system. Through digital twin technology, it also allows for maximizing plant performance, predicting malfunctions, and planning maintenance cycles – in turn generating larger quantities of clean energy at a lower cost.Get in touch
In Norway, about 95% of electricity produced is from water power plants, and many countries all over the world can exploit this source of renewable energy.
How can efficiency be improved, with the knowledge that just 1% growth in energy output can provide an entire town with electricity? Can we increase equipment reliability and reduce maintenance time and costs? Simulation and digital twins are the reason why we can answer “yes” to these questions.Get in touch
Renewable energy is derived from natural sources that are replenished at a higher rate than they are consumed. Extracting, transforming, and distributing this energy is far from simple.
In our pursuit to maximize efficiency, we explore the potential of new materials, design highly efficient generators and accumulators, and develop new ways to safely and efficiently transport energy from production sites to our homes. Engineering simulation allows us to test thousands of hypotheses and select the optimal materials, shapes, and configurations for renewable energy plants.
Simulation can help validate the performance of an entire wind turbine or solar panel site while considering the influence of surrounding terrain. It can help create a maintenance schedule that optimizes performance and minimizes downtime. Discover the full power of simulation, and let us help you unlock the potential of renewable energy.Get in touch
As the world moves towards cleaner energy sources, the oil and gas industry is exploring new methods to ensure a secure energy supply in the short-term while preparing for a long-term transition.
With the increasing focus on extraction and transportation costs, safety, and the impact of the green movement, there is mounting pressure. Simulation technology offers a way for energy companies worldwide to improve performance, reliability, and durability while reducing environmental impact through more energy-efficient plants and processes. Techniques such as automatic drilling and IoT solutions are being deployed to build and maintain assets to withstand harsh environments. Want to learn more? Reach out to find out how we can help.
