Turbine layout optimisation
Kinewell Wake-Optimised Turbine Arrangement (KWOTA) balances energy production, CAPEX and OPEX to minimise the LCoE of a wind farm.
Maximise energy yield
KWOTA uses an industry-wide recognised wake model in combination with our unique optimisation technology, enabling the software to find wake-optimised turbine layouts quickly.
Reduce CAPEX and OPEX by avoiding expensive turbine installation locations.
Scale up your scenario modelling to de-risk key decisions such as turbine type selection and potential for overplanting.
Suitable for all offshore wind markets
KWOTA can generate optimised regular array layouts for uniformity, irregular layouts for additional freedom, or occupy an optimal set of sites within a grid such as with US wind farms.
What others say about us
This tool [KDOTS] represents a significant achievement to improve decision making for large scale wind energy integration. By combining advanced mathematical methods with engineering expertise, this project furthers our progress to a net zero future. It’s exhilarating to see years of interdisciplinary research being put into a commercial product.
ORE Catapult’s commitment to innovation fosters success stories, bringing transformative technologies to market. Our collaboration with Kinewell has propelled ground breaking research, leading to a cutting edge product. It plays a crucial role in the design and optimisation of offshore wind farms, driving the global transition to a net zero future.
The work conducted by Kinewell Energy has evidenced the value that subsea junction boxes can deliver to floating wind farms under a range of innovative network configurations. The project team uncovered additional learning around floating wind design decisions, that we will take forward and deploy in our global floating offshore wind farm portfolio.
The Kinewell team have developed a truly incredible capability for the offshore wind industry with the KLOC software solution through the TIGGOR programme.
Kinewell’s software will allow us to look at ways of optimising the layout of our inter array cables and Offshore Substation (OSPs) locations at an earlier stage of the design, giving us the opportunity to find potential cost savings in multiple areas of the project reducing our Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE).
