C/ Gran Capità, S/N
08034 Barcelona, Spain
The International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) is a research organization created in 1987 as a partnership between the Government of Catalonia and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya -BarcelonaTech, in cooperation with UNESCO. The aim of CIMNE is the development of numerical methods and computational techniques for advancing knowledge and technology in engineering and applied sciences. The research activities of CIMNE cover a wide spectrum of engineering fields. Besides the coordination of the FIBREGY project, the work to be conducted will take advantage of the expertise of CIMNE in offshore engineering, FRP materials and structures, application of model order reduction for structural health monitoring and development of computational models for assessment of floating wind turbines. CIMNE is coordinating the consortium.

INEGI is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) focused on research and technology based innovation activities, technology transfer, consulting and technological services, oriented to the development of industry and economy in general. A non-profit, private and recognized as a public utility entity.
In Fibregy, INEGI will give mainly some contributions in FRP materials, in the development of new types of connections and in the elaboration of new design procedures and guidelines, and finally in the building of small and middle scale demonstrators in a way to validate the work done.
iXBlue SAS (France)
34 rue de la Croix de Fer
CS 70121 Cedex
78105 Saint-Germain en Laye
iXblue shipyard is the European leader in the construction of vessels in composite material. iXblue thus develops and builds ships that are ever more efficient, economical and environmentally friendly. By bringing its core expertise in composite material within the Fibergy project, iXblue aims at helping develop a more sustainable environment through greener renewable energy operations. iXblue’s know-how in composite material will indeed allow significant wind turbine weight reduction. Using composite material will also offer better performance throughout the windfarm life cycle by lowering maintenance costs due to the absence of corrosion. This will in turn limit the environmental impact of potential anti-corrosion treatments. Finally, the use of composite material will greatly improve the underwater acoustic signature of wind turbines by reducing vibration propagation, limiting the noise pollution that can impact marine species.
