With the wind energy market maturing, delivering the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCoE) is rapidly becoming a focal point for everyone involved. The challenges to achieving that goal depend on your position in the industry. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) are often limited by clients’ constraints or market demand. Meanwhile, developers and governments are faced with difficult decisions regarding optimal technologies and cost savings.
Streamline your decision making
Whatever your role and your challenges, our Turbine.Architect modelling tool and associated expert support services help you answer those questions.
- Turbine designers
Powerful engineering models help you easily determine the concept with the lowest LCoE.
- Component designers
See how your components interact with other key components, the turbine and the wind farm, and calculate cost-saving potential and identify the best markets for your products.
- Wind farm owners, developers and governments
Assess the ideal location for maximum value and which turbines and components suit that location best, and help to identify the LCoE-saving potential of future technology trends and innovation.
On all cases, we work closely with you to deliver a successful result. Together we define the inputs and parameters specific to your project. Then, after careful analysis, we provide you with a tailored report and relevant data sets to help you make the right decisions.
Years of experience and vast quantities of data
DNV GL is perfectly positioned to help you understand the relationship between cost and engineering. During our 15+ years of experience, we’ve built up a large database of load results through our Bladed tool. We have also helped design more than 10 different multi-megawatt wind turbine concepts, as well as offshore substructures. As a result, we have expert knowledge of both the turbine and the balance of plant, and their interaction. All of this knowledge is also embedded in the Turbine.Architect tool.
