One of the most challenging tasks for wind farm developers is the optimisation of offshore projects. Large offshore wind farms and clusters, such as those in the German Bight or on the Dogger bank, change the wind climate itself and make this optimisation task even more demanding.
During the process of offshore wind farm development and optimisation, hundreds of variations are considered and need to be managed, documented and benchmarked.
Our new software tool, Wind & Economy, supports your challenging work with the seamlessly integrated modelling of wind climate, large scale and localized effects, electrical loss calculations and derivation of economic key figures.
A clearly organized workflow supports you in the management and analysis of the set of all windfarm variations ever to be considered during your project. Using LCOE, the Levelized Cost of Energy, as an economic performance key indicator helps you to benchmark different approaches, select your optimised design and reduce offshore wind energy costs. In addition, the detailed knowledge of the uncertainties of energy production and LCOE support the management of financial risks.
Leading edge meteorological and wind farm models, taken together with a consideration of the uncertainty of energy production and the cost of energy, make your results waterproof and bankable.
