Pelamis Wave Power

Pelamis Wave Power Ltd. (PWP) is an Edinburgh-based company founded in 1998 to develop a novel offshore wave-energy converter called Pelamis. The Pelamis is a semi-submerged, articulated structure composed of cylindrical sections linked by hinged joints.

The Challenge

Pelamis Wave Power needed to extend its design analysis capabilities and be able to analyze “what-if” scenarios

Dassault Systèmes Response

The company adopted SIMULIA for its finite element and non-linear analysis needs

Benefits

Thanks to SIMULIA’s sub-modeling and non-linear analysis capabilities, Pelamis Wave Power has increased the precision and reliability of its data and made the Pelamis wave energy converter safer and more environmentally sound
