Wind Energy Solutions

Climate change is a challenge for society and reliable alternative energy sources are becoming increasingly important to meet civilisation's (our) growing energy consumption.

Wind turbines have great potential and can cover a large portion of it. With our knowledge and experience, we at IST are ready to assist you in the development of efficient and sustainable wind turbines.

100% flexible bodies 
Because flexibility matters...

With the capability of FIRST to consider the full interaction of flexible bodies, the delivered results are highly corresponding with the real behaviour of the components.

Wear prediction simulation
For the sustainability

The wear prediction simulation allows you to investigate the long-run beahaviour of the hydrodynamic bearings.

Identify mixed friction conditions in an early state of the construction process, and optimize the bearing construction parameters.
