Naval Energies Drives its Leadership in Marine Renewable Energies with Dassault Systèmes

Dassault Syst¨mes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) announced that Naval Energies, a leader in marine renewables, is using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop new offshore floating wind turbines and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) turnkey solutions, and drive its leadership in marine renewable energies.

The sea represents a source of renewable energy that can help to satisfy the needs of the worlds growing population while ensuring a carbon-free footprint, said Laurent Schneider Maunoury, CEO, Naval Energies. As we work toward harnessing these possibilities, Dassault Syst¨mes 3DEXPERIENCE platform was a strategic choice for accelerating the development of our technological solutions. Thanks to the cloud, weve quickly started to deploy the platform, and can scale its use from the design process to manufacturing and operations when needed.

Naval Energies will rely on the Designed for Sea industry solution experience, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, for program management, engineering and analysis of semi-submersible floaters and OTEC solutions, anchoring systems, underwater cables and connection solutions for offshore wind farm projects. Naval Energies can securely collaborate with its network of partners, reuse and share existing know-how, and reduce program development cycles and costs.

Programs include the Groix and Belle-Ile floating wind farm, a pilot project to install four 6-megawatt wind turbines off Frances Atlantic coast that will produce electricity for 20,000 households. The project aims to optimize floating wind farm technology and infrastructure before full-scale deployments and, ultimately, contribute to energy transition in France. Naval Energies is the prime contractor for semi-submersible floating systems.

Floating wind turbines offer opportunities to harness the energy of offshore winds in deep maritime areas that are not visible from a coastline, through the use of a floating structure fixed to the seabed by an anchoring system that controls its movements. OTEC is a process that can produce electricity by using the temperature difference between deep cold ocean water and warm tropical surface waters. OTEC plants pump large quantities of deep cold seawater and surface seawater to run a power cycle and produce electricity.

Naval Energies technological solutions for offshore floating wind turbines and OTEC will play a role in the definition of marine renewable energy industry standards that could allow for a more affordable energy alternative in the future.

The marine marketplace is shifting due to a heightened focus on alternative energy sources. Innovators like Naval Energies are entering new segments with new business models, said Alain Houard, Vice President, Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Syst¨mes. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables them to better address the challenges of this market transformation as well as leverage opportunities originating from the sea with new ways of working.

France, which has the worlds second largest maritime surface measuring 11,000 km², seeks to fulfill 32 percent of the countrys energy consumption with renewable energies by 2030.
