This trophy was awarded to the Deeplines® software for analyzing seabed-surface links (production lines, risers and anchoring technology) in offshore oil production.
Developed jointly by IFPEN and Principia, Deeplines® is simulation software that can be used by oil companies and engineers for designing and optimizing oil pipelines for their offshore projects. Deeplines® is marketed by the Principia engineering firm, which has been a partner of IFPEN since its foundation.
In 2014, IFPEN and Principia developed a version of the software adapted to offshore wind power: DeepLines Wind™. This software simulates wind generators’ behavior in their environment. It is used for designing, dimensioning and optimizing the floater and the anchoring system for the floating wind generators. DeepLines Wind™ is the first French industrial and commercial software for simulating offshore wind generators, with customers throughout the entire value chain.
“The company’s flagship product, the Deeplines® software, is the result of the combination of IFPEN’s expertise and our knowledge and feedback of experience from the industrial market.”
Benoît de Mouillac, CEO of Principia.
