ChallengeIn collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), EMD wanted to provide wind farm companies with access to technology offering fast wind assessments in complex terrain.
SolutionEMD built a Dell high-performance computing cluster that supports DTU software in performing these assessments, helping wind farm project developers plan new wind farms.
Benefits• Customers receive results in 30 minutes instead of one week
• Users can plan wind farms with double wind speed accuracy
• Turbines can be positioned to generate the highest yield
• Wind farm project developers are more likely to secure funding for projects
• New possibilities for sustainable energy are more viable
