South African onshore wind farm,

140 MW



Genetic algorithm based software was used to design the inter-array cable layouts for this 140 MW onshore wind farm. Several turbine layouts were provided for each potential turbine type and a range of possible cable sizes were investigated.


This fee earning project was undertaken by Andrew Jenkins prior to founding Kinewell Energy. The software used during the project was benchmarked against traditional design methods in a publically available paper. The KLOC optimisation engine created by Kinewell Energy can not only better these results but can do so up to 310,000x faster, allowing more designs to be interrogated and greater savings achieved.


Kinewell Energy is the only provider able to offer services based on the revolutionary KLOC software.
