Our

tools

Our studies and analyses are preformed using industry standard software last versions.

We are aware that requirements differ according to project phases, we have developed in-house predesign, processing and post-processing tools, in order to follow the projects rapidly and flexibly.

The commercial and in house software are supported on powerful computers that enables us to answer the sector specific requirements.

 In-house tools

We developped a full set of tools and equivalent models to bring powerful services to our customers.

WINDGLAZ Predesign tools

Développé depuis 2009, ces outils nous permettent de prédimensionner tout type de concept d’éolienne offshore fixe ou flottante.

Fields

    

Type of studies

  • R&D Programm
  • Fixed or Floating Foundation Preliminary design
  • Control command optimization loop

WINDGLAZ Equivalent Turbines

Turbines loads are a key input data for every offshore foundation sizing and design. At preliminary design, these loads are oftenly missing because the wind turbine manufacturer is not yet involved in the project. WINDGLAZ has developped the capability to generate equivalent turbines numerical models. These are constantly adjusted and updated following the market trends.

The following database is available and can be updated upon demand.

Type of studies

  • R&D Programm
  • Fixed or Floating Foundation Preliminary design
  • Sensitivity studies
