Iberdrola to focus on supercomputing

Iberdrola plans to use supercomputing in designing all of its wind power facilities at locations featuring complex terrain.

The development emerged as Iberdrola started the construction work for the Pier II wind farm, with an installed capacity of 66 MW, in Mexico.
The company mentioned that one of the highlights of Pier II is it being the first wind farm to be designed by Iberdrola using supercomputing; more specifically a system called SEDAR (Spanish acronym for High Resolution Wind Power Simulation) developed in coordination with the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC-CNS).
