UK offshore wind farm, 450 MW
The cable routing and associated cost implications of increasing the voltage from 33 kV to 66 kV were explored using genetic algorithm based software allowing the work to be undertaken much quicker and more cost effective than traditional methods.
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.
