Having calculated a mathematically correct shape for its aerodynamically-optimized vertical axis rotor blades, quietrevolution uses Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA to design, engineer and manufacture its wind energy turbines. CATIA helps quietrevolution to capitalize on the growing demand for wind energy systems by providing an efficient design, development and production technology platform that allows the company to make the most of its resources.
quietrevolution Design Manager Richard Kingsley said, “Product development is at the heart of our work. In the short time that we have been using Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA virtual design solution, it has significantly improved our ability to efficiently complete the design-to-manufacture processes of advanced structures.” Mr. Kingsley, who has experienced PLM at Lotus Cars, Proton, Ascari and Aston Martin, added, “Dassault Systèmes PLM allows us to digitally design, sign off, investigate tooling feasibility, build products, and communicate 3D designs. CATIA is the industry standard among our supply chain and it allows us to exchange native files with partner companies leading to more efficient production processes.”
Mike Crow, director, Dassault Systèmes said, “We are glad that quietrevolution is utilizing CATIA leading-edge virtual design solutions to be at the forefront of the wind energy industry. Using best practices developed in conjunction with leading manufacturers from other industries, wind turbine manufacturers can avoid costly trial and error in the real world and significantly reduce development cycle time while manufacturing stronger products with higher energy outputs by integrating design, testing, and manufacturability analysis in a single environment.”
Darren Cairns of Intrinsys, the Dassault Systèmes value added reseller that implemented and supports the solution said, “quietrevolution is an example of a cutting-edge company using advanced 3D PLM technology to lead the world in this sector of the wind energy industry. We are proud to make our CATIA expertise available to help quietrevolution develop new energy solutions by providing advanced production software and the services that optimize its rewards.”
quietrevolution Ltd develops and supplies elegant, renewable energy solutions, especially small wind products optimized for use at the point of energy demand. The company’s products demonstrate that wind can be used cost-effectively, cleanly and quietly to provide a long term source of energy for both our own and future generations.
