IN THIS CASE STUDY, YOU WILL DISCOVER
- Akselos’ digital collaboration with Lamprell to use our simulation software to model an offshore jacket foundation
- The results of the partnership: a reduction of the steel weight of the foundation by 30%
Lamprell and Akselos partnered to demonstrate that engineering simulation software can optimise offshore wind assets’ design, delivery, maintenance and life. As part of the project, Akselos modelled Lamprell’s offshore wind jacket foundations to identify specific stress hotspots for optimisation.
The modelling results showed that the software could reduce the steel weight of offshore wind jacket foundations by up to 30%, bringing several benefits to Lamprell, including a CAPEX reduction, improved operation and maintenance by eliminating unnecessary intervention, and asset life extension
