Knowing which way the wind is blowing - menzio GmbH
The international team of experts of menzio GmbH is specialised in simulating and measuring the wind to determine and optimise energy yield of on- and offshore wind farms as well as to evaluate wind conditions in urban environments. Furthermore, the in house CFD software WindStation is successfully used and developed for dynamic line rating of electric utilities as well as analysing crosswind conditions along railway tracks.
With our CFD-software WindStation we offer a professional tool for simulating the wind field and wind farm energy yield. You are welcome to test WindStation without functionality restrictions.
Combining CFD-simulations, measuring, energy yield and meso-scale data we prepare bankable and TR6-conform energy yield assessments for on- and offshore sites.
We prepare assessments for noise immissions and shadow flicker as well as site suitability and turbulence according to legal requirements (BImSchG). We also determine visibility and optical impacts of wind farms.
We evaluate and optimise the performance of your wind farm including analyses of SCADA-data. We check your permit documents as well as contracts for grid connection and operation management.
For offshore wind farms, we offer services for planning (assessments, layout optimisation, project management and operation (fatigue loads, losses, inspection of technical damages)
Based on CFD-simulations with our software WindStation, we calculated the maximum transmission capacity using the Cigré model and the guide line VDE-AR-N 4210-5.
Simulating crosswind conditions along railway tracks or cableways, we contribute to the operational safety of high-speed tracks or alpine gondolas.
By connecting our CFD-software WindStation with the model FireStation we offer customised solutions for fire propagation and pollution dispersion modelling.
