DNV Software and Fedem Technology have introduced a new coupled analysis module integrated with Sesam Wind, DNV's software solution for strength and fatigue analysis of offshore wind turbines and substructures.

According to DNV, the new software solution is powered by FEDEM Windpower and includes dynamic simulations, advanced fatigue calculation and code check in one complete package. With the new module, DNV says Sesam Wind incorporates state-of-the-art algorithms geared toward structural analysis.

"As offshore wind is moving into deeper waters, engineering of offshore wind installations will take full benefit of Sesam, whether the installation is based on fixed structures, floating structures, shallow waters or deeper waters," says Are Føllesdal Tjønn, managing director at DNV Software. "With its leading position within offshore engineering, the offshore wind segment is a natural part of the Sesam strategy going forward.”
