As a crucial source of energy, the sea provides numerous opportunities while posing significant risks. We craft ships, a complex combination of technological systems, which must safely operate in a very hostile environment, keeping their precious cargo of people or goods safe. We build platforms in the middle of the ocean, to harvest energy from wind or oil from the seabed.
Simulation is key to minimizing the risk of any malfunction that could result in catastrophic consequences for the environment, human lives, and investment.
The next challenge is to create ships that are not only safer but also more environmentally friendly and automated, focused on balancing weights, implementing smart systems, and incorporating new propulsion methods. Similarly, offshore platforms should be carefully designed and thoroughly tested to ensure productivity and safety against multiple scenarios of possible failures.
Simulation is an essential tool as it enables our clients to achieve their project goals while minimizing risks and costs. From design exploration to predictive maintenance, if we leverage digital twins we can maximize the operational time of expensive structures while monitoring critical parameters. Our focus is to ensure safe, sustainable, and profitable operations.
Wind energy offers a sustainable way to reduce risks, to cut emissions, and costs. The EU is spearheading a Green Revolution aimed at using wind turbines to generate energy.
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. While it may seem like we have an unlimited supply of energy sources, extracting, transforming, and distributing this energy is far from simple. We can harness energy from wind, water, tides, as well as solar and geothermal power.
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.
With simulation, we can validate the performance of an entire wind turbine or solar panel site while considering the influence of surrounding terrain. By predicting potential failures, we can design a maintenance schedule that optimizes performance and minimizes downtime. The simulation also allows us to learn from past issues, enabling us to design better machines for the future. Discover the full power of simulation with us, 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, companies in the industry face 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 that can withstand harsh environments.
