Quicker simulations = better competitiveness

Customer: QED Naval

Offering: Platform as a service

Outcome: Ability to compete successfully with larger organisations

The Hartree Centre’s on-demand high performance computing (HPC) service enCORE, delivered by OCF, enabled small engineering consultancy QED Naval to run complex simulations four times faster than using in-house systems.

As part of a project aiming to cut the cost of deploying wave and tidal turbines, QED Naval needed to run sophisticated simulations quicker than its computing infrastructure would allow, but capital investment in in-house HPC proved too expensive.

enCORE provided the perfect solution and has become a key component of QED Naval’s simulation services. The ability to aid cost control, in particular, is vital for the company in a challenging market.
