Our portfolio of energy related projects mostly focus at present on digital areas of support for the offshore renewable energy secor
and on windfarms and the associated industrial supply chains for them.
Some of our energy sector related projects include:
- modelling and simulating the energy footprint of data centers with special focus on the Northern Powerhouse regional
- computing wind turbine and associated cable layouts for windfarms, using computational
and graph methods.
- Managing streaming Internet of Things (IoT) data from offshore windfarms, that can be used for systems monitoring and
- Managing, archiving and mining operational data from shipping vessels around the globe both for marketplace data
analysis as well as engine and systems condition monitoring.
- Just-in-time digital manufacture or 3d-printing of components and supplies for the offshore wind
- Digitally tracking and managing the logistics of componets, workforce and operations and maintenance
data for supporting offshore windfarms.
- Visualising complex data overlays using Augmented Reality (AR) techniques for both factory use in constructing complex
high value products such as turbine blades, and also in operational and maintenance operations deploying workers in remote and
dangerous environments such as on offshore wind turbine installations.
- Modelling and developing software to manage energy relayed Internet of Things(IoT) from windfarms and their
associated turbine towers.
There are ongoing opportunities to work with us in the area of digital energy infrastructure through: contract research and
development; collaborative grant funded work; student work placements or student research internships or postgraduate study.
