ORE Catapult's Hackathon Winners
Having impressed ScottishPower Renewables at ORE Catapult’s inaugural Hackathon, FEA has established a flourishing relationship with the energy industry giant to explore aspects of site layout optimisation and cable route optimisation for offshore wind.
The funding enabled EchoBolt to develop a customer version of its bolt integrity analysis software, BoltWatch, giving customers immediate visibility of asset health. Working with energy giant RWE’s operations engineers, EchoBolt was able to design a tailored product specific to the needs of the Offshore Wind market and provide a platform to perform EchoBolt inspections at customers’ sites.
