Watch WindFarmer in use

See how WindFarmer can be used, among other things, to analyse an offshore wind farm or to work with measured production data, on our YouTube channel.

 

Transparency to make informed decisions

WindFarmer enables you to understand in detail what is going on in a wind farm and to make informed decisions.  The models used in WindFarmer are transparent, validated and documented.  This provides you with complete control and unrivalled accuracy for your wind farm design and energy yield calculations.

 

High quality software you can rely on

WindFarmer is advanced, tested and validated software for commercial use.  WindFarmer is used by DNV GL and by many other major clients worldwide, to design and assess many GW of wind energy capacity every year.

 

Benefit from our global network

WindFarmer is available globally. It is offered in 12 languages and comes with first class global user support. Training courses and self-learning tutorials are available.

 

WindFarmer supports the use of your preferred flow model

WindFarmer imports wind resource data files from a large range of flow models, including the new WAsP CFD. Advanced flow simulations can also be ordered through DNV GL’s CFD service, operated by our CFD specialists. In complex terrain, forested terrain, or at sites where atmospheric stability is important, the result can be a significant improvement on classical approaches. For more information, please contact windfarmer@dnvgl.com.
