The EU sponsored development project EERA-DTOC (Design Tool for Offshore Wind Farm Clusters) was successfully concluded in May. For three and a half years, 22 important industrial partners from 10 EU countries worked with the goal of bringing a software tool to market which eases the design of offshore wind farms, supports their optimisation and makes offshore wind farm investment risks more transparent.
The software was tested by several end-users involved in the project: “We and the European Commision are very satisfied with the product we created together. We are happy to demonstrate the prototypes in an online presentation or at the EWEA taking place in November 2015 in Paris,” according to Dr. Waldl, Managing Director of Overspeed.
The Wind & Economy software will appear on the market in the fourth quarter of 2015 and is distributed by Overspeed.
