Client: Ampyx Power
Project: AP3 platform on land and sea
Purpose: Public information presentation, marketing, and decision-making.
Our challenge: Airborne Wind Energy Systems are a solution for cheap energy, and AmpyxPower is developing the AP3 drone to harvest high-level wind energy. We have completed many 3D animation projects for this client while they were developing the AP2 and the AP3. For the AP3 we received 3D models of the plane and tether connection which always saves a lot of time in animation production and 3D rendering stage. Our task was to animate take-off and landing in-combination with 3D modeling the test-sitelocation in Northern Ireland, focussing on the platform for the launch phase and landing phases. The next stage of the AmpyxPower challenge was for us to 3D visualize the concept of an Ocean wind farm consisting of 100 of these adapted floating platforms, each with a tethered AP4 which is a larger version of the AP3. Deep-water ocean scene where the high-level wind is more easily accessible.
