Shoreline’s intelligent systems for offshore wind provide state-of-the-art simulations, resulting in optimised construction and operation of wind farms.
Onshore wind energy reached a turning point in 2017, becoming the cheapest source of electricity generation in many locations. Constructing, operating and maintaining offshore wind farms, however, is still costly. Wind speeds and output increase with distance from the shore – but so do costs. Simulation tools can therefore be critical to keeping costs down in all phases of an offshore wind farm’s life cycle.
Powered by state-of-the-art simulation technology with a built-in artificial intelligence engine, Shoreline software simulates a vast number of complex supply chain, field service, workflow and asset performance scenarios with speed and precision. This helps decision-makers to reduce risk and achieve safer, more cost-efficient operations and increased production.
Shoreline currently provides the following SaaS products: * O&M and Construction Design – project development tools for cost estimation, logistics optimisation, project schedule estimation, risk assessment, early production assessment and financial forecasting. * O&M and Construction Execution – intelligent planning, reporting and scheduling tools for optimising short and long-term plans and resource utilisation, and maximising production. Integrates seamlessly with BI tools, ERP, HR and CMMS systems and weather forecasts.
Shoreline offers predictability, consistency and transparency – and, importantly, new speed – that gives companies the power to optimise safety and costs to maximise productivity.
The expansion of offshore wind shows no sign of slowing. In Europe alone, it is projected to grow to a total installed capacity of 25 GW by 2020. This increases the demand for systems such as Shoreline’s.
Shoreline’s software solutions are used by leading Norwegian and European companies such as Equinor (formerly Statoil), Siemens Gamesa, Ørsted and Engie.
