Furow´s course demonstration

FUROW (For Uncertainty Reduction of Wind) is the new software of analisys and meteorological data representation, wind resource assessment and micrositing developed by SOLUTE inside the ETSWIND project cofinanced by CDTI (Center for the Development of Industrial Technology).

This software is the main result of the strategical bet, for a wind resource assessment and micrositing department, done by the company six years ago.

The efforts performed during the last years have permitted this department to be composed of 10 MSC engineers. The services offered by this department are:

  • feasibility analysis of future wind farms
  • measurement campaigns performed with meteorological masts and SODAR
  • wind resource assessment and wind farm design
  • time series reconstruction ( wind speed and direction in one site since today up to 1979)
  • wind and energy prediction

The capabilities of this department added to the rest of the services offered by SOLUTE in the fields of wind loads calculation, controller development, structural analysis, mechanism analysis and design/verification of foundations, make Solute to be able to offer integral solutions to wind projects.

With the aim of maximize the next commercial launching of FUROW, a demonstration course of the software was organized. The entities visited during the last months to release the software, were invited.

The call was a success attending representatives of 15 entities as Cobra group, EDP Renováveis, Acciona Energía, Gas Natural Fenosa Ingeniería y Desarrollo de Generación, Enerfín, Renovalia, CENER (National Renewable Energy Center), Gestamp Wind, Mtorres, Alarde Group, AEE (Spanish Wind Energy Association), Inabensa, Suzlon, Capital Energy y CIRCE (Research Center for Energy Resources and Consumptions).

SOLUTE has begun a new Project to develop other modules, which will use cutting-edge methodologies inside the wind industry for the offshore wind data analysis, wind analysis by CFD models, calculus integration of loads for wind farms analysis…The aim is to create a platform that permits the development of wind farm projects in an integral way.

The next communication and explanation of the software will take place this Tuesday 23rd of June, in the Spanish Wind Congress. We wait for the attendants.
