X1 Wind gained valuable access to Ansys simulation software through the Ansys Startup Program. The company has developed a disruptive floating wind technology that can mitigate offshore energy challenges and radically transform energy production. Carlos Casanovas, Co-founder and CTO of X1 Wind, explains how the technology works.
“If your floating design is very heavy and expensive to build, you will not be very competitive, so structural integrity is a really fine line for us. It’s important to have the right simulation tools so that you can do all the optimization that you need to do, and Ansys checks all the boxes.”
