EMD International is a software and consultancy enterprise that plans, calculates and documents eco-friendly projects throughout the world. For more than 30 years, wind power has been EMD International’s primary business area, and the firm has become a leading player in the global growth of sustainable energy projects and research into wind power. 


EMD International began life in the 1980s as a research project at Aalborg University and was officially founded in 1986. EMD has developed the world’s most widely used commercial software packages for the design and planning of new wind power projects, in addition to the actual operational phase. EMD International’s wind power consultants have comprehensive experience from all parts of the world and the firm provides consultancy services that are internationally recognised for their independent expertise within both wind power and the development of CHP projects. Clientele include major operators such as Vestas and Siemens Wind Power.

 

Benefits of collaboration with NOVI

The EMD International adventure has its roots at the heart of the research world, stemming from a good idea and the technological ambition of a couple of students. With help from research funds, EMD is a major leading international enterprise in the wind power sector today. As is also the case for many other companies at NOVI, proximity to the university has been a decisive factor in the development of EMD International.

A good example is EMD’s collaboration with NOVI and the Danish Growth Fund on the development of a supercomputer – a so-called High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster – used for calculating global wind conditions. The capacity of the supercomputer corresponds to 800 CPUs, which results in acceptable computation times of wind resources throughout the world for EMD’s software. Based on this information, wind turbine projects are planned in order to achieve maximum efficiency. NOVI has built the required cooling facilities and security provisions to realise a project of this calibre in collaboration with IT company Netic.

Good advice from an entrepreneur

On collaboration with NOVI, EMD’s General Manager Per Nielsen says:

The university and NOVI are closely linked. There’s a network at NOVI that can help you with the often very difficult project applications in which there are considerable demands in terms of knowledge. Here you can find people who are used to applying for research funds from relevant foundations and institutions.
