Track Record

ESOX has been developed for the offshore wind industry after a decade of experience working with planning, simulation and execution of offshore wind projects. In offshore wind, our ESOX tools are used for analysis of transport, pre-assembly, load-out, transit, installation, commissioning and operation.

Since 2015, LAUTEC has undertaken modelling using ESOX and ESOX+ for more than 5 GW of offshore wind capacity across North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania. Now, the new ESOX tool enables all project participants to independently do most of the analysis that is needed in an offshore wind project.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Identify Critical Activities

Identify the most cost effective installation setup by exploring what activities are causing the most downtime and by analysing how changes in operational constraints impacts downtime.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Identify Critical Weather Variables

Identify the critical weather variables for each installation scenario by using the breakdown of how individual weather variables contribute to total downtime.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Generate Weather Calendars for Time Scheduling

Generate monthly weather calendars for Primavera P6 and Microsoft Project.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Evaluate Seasonal Downtime

Quantify seasonal variations in weather downtime in order to identify the preferred installation periods.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Forecast Milestones Dates

Estimate completion dates for each position for any confidence (percentile) value. Example displays forecasted completion dates for a construction campaign with 70 positions, starting January 1st.

ESOX DATA EXAMPLE

Full Transparency

No black-box modelling: see how the simulation works and double check your campaign assumptions.
