Ramboll Whitby Bird

SolidWorks and SolidWorks Simulation helped Ramboll Whitby bird to analyze factors such as wave loads and calculate the operation of 100 wind turbines in one go.

About Ramboll Whitby Bird

Ramboll Oil & Gas has 50% of the international market for offshore wind platforms and 75% of the market in the UK.


Needed a CAD package for designing the foundations that support as many as  500 wind turbines.


SolidWorks enabled the company to calculate the operation of 100 turbines at once. SolidWorks Simulation enabled Ramboll Whitby Bird to analyze factors such as wave loads. SolidWorks allows rapid production of designs that take all factors into considerations. The company can avoid clashes that can occur when different contractors are working on the  same assembly.


  • Can calculate the operation of a number of turbines in one go
  • Can analyze factors such as wave loads using SolidWorks Simulation
  • Allows rapid production
  • SolidWorks helps Ramboll Whitby Bird to innovate freely
