Expertise Hub VIDEO: FROENIX Helps Ensure Economic OWF Operation

September 28, 2020

first_imgEarlier this year, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES) released the first wind index for offshore wind farms. The Fraunhofer IWES Offshore Wind Energy Index (FROENIX) helps with estimating the inter-annual power density variation at offshore wind farm sites.Indexes have been used for onshore wind farms in Germany for several years now, allowing the achieved wind farm output to be compared against the expected output and thus enabling operators to identify and remedy the causes of performance losses.With the new FROENIX, Fraunhofer IWES recently made it possible to use the methodology at offshore wind farms in the German Bight.Find out more in our Expertise Hub interview with Martin Dörenkämper, Scientist at Fraunhofer IWES.For more Expertise Hub interviews, visit Navingo’s Offshore WIND channel on Vimeo.last_img
