Home » Technical Studies

OWC draws on a vast range of technical expertise across both engineering and renewable energy, enabling us to provide a wide range of technical studies to provide detailed evaluations in almost every area of interest. Our technical studies can be applied at any stage of a project or asset’s lifecycle, providing technical assessments to support decision-making in maximising a project’s performance, viability and profitability.

OWC’s technical studies provide accurate and impartial technical advice to support decision-making at any stage of a project or asset’s lifecycle. Technical studies can give definition as to an asset, site or project’s viability, performance, and even profitability.

We provide expertise across a wide array of areas in renewable energy onshore and offshore, covering, among other areas, the following:

  • Fixed and Floating Foundation Design, including Coupled Load Assessments
  • Weather Downtime Analysis (sequenced downtime analysis utilizing Monte Carlo simulation)
  • Turbulence impacts on energy production and operational downtime due to induced fatigue
  • Wake Effects and Windfarm Layout Optimisation
  • Turbine Controller Assessment
  • Technical Risk Assessments
  • CAPEX and OPEX modelling
