Powerful analytics has never been so intuitive
PROBLEM IT SOLVES
Youwind Model is a disrupting cloud-based IT system that optimizes the financials of an offshore wind farm, while integrating engineering functions with a usability mindset as never imagined before.
Youwind Model performs powerful analytics, handles big data and keeps traceability of all steps and users, resulting in a revolutionary system for the development of an offshore wind farm project, from early stages to installation planning and logistics.
Reasons to Use Youwind Model
- No need to send spreadsheets by email anymore
- Leverage years of experience with the high quality tool made by experts for experts in the wind power industry
- Let Youwind model and optimise the complex technical and financial system of offshore wind
- Create your own custom site, vessel and turbine profiles (including power curves)
- Compare unlimited projects and scenarios side by side in one page and and let our functions guide you towards the differences
- Extensive database of existing wind farms, turbines and vessels to be used for guidance or benchmarking (Youwind Market Library)
- Make quick adjustments and see immediate impact on detailed metrics such as AEP, ROI, NPV, LCOE and IRR on a single dashboard
- Automatic reporting function: Export your scenarios comparison and be ready to present for your next meeting
- Secure encrypted data storage of in-house confidential data
- Users team management with individual log in and work together in the same platform, share scenarios, assumptions and keep track of changes
- Create project summary reports
- Prospect new locations and find the best projects in a fast and efficient way
- Credible LCOE analysis and cost planning
DEFINE YOUR SITE
Compare different scenarios and perform fast sensitivity analysis, both at technical and financial levels, thanks to the extended parameterizable datasets and outputs from engineering functions.
Examples of datasets included in Youwind Model
- size and location
- wind speed and waves climate (mesoscale data or measurements)
- soil condition
- distance to shore and available harbours.
Subcomponents profile sheets: Wind turbines, foundations (bottom-fixed and floating), offshore and onshore substations, array and export cables.
Our collaboration with VORTEX provides an automatic integration of their wind data into our analysis algorithms.
With ESRII we provide bathymetry and metocean data integration that can be exported from the platform after running the wind farm analysis.
