Making the transition away from coal, gas and other fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy  was one of the top agenda items at COP26 as world leaders gathered to tackle the climate crisis. While progress has already been made – renewables made up over 70% of global power capacity additions in 2019 – more still needs to be done. The COP26 Energy Transition Council says that the pace of the global transition to clean power needs to at least quadruple over the next decade.

One of the key players driving the charge is Danish consulting and engineering firm ISC. A leader in the green energy sector, ISC developed one of the first offshore wind substations and is currently involved in Hornsea Two, set to be the world’s largest wind farm when it goes live in 2022.

“In the 2000s, we began to see signs of the offshore wind business taking off and were ideally positioned to establish ourselves in this sector,” said Anders Thomsen, president and CEO of ISC. “We have now designed more than 50% of offshore wind substations globally.”

As demand for ISC’s services increases and its project portfolio grows, the company needed an industry-leading platform to centralize its data, create design templates, and support it to use the latest design and engineering approaches. Today, it uses the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on cloud to manage all its engineering projects and its business is going from strength to strength.
