Solar & thermal engineering

At a time when it has become essential to improve energy efficiency
in all industrial sectors, Caspeo helps you to enhance
the energetic balance of your system.

Caspeo has developed a strong expertise in dynamic thermal simulation of outdoor industrial facilities, born out of a unique alliance of skills in industrial process modelling, 3D modelling and computer programming.

Using the Rhino/Grasshopper 3D modeller, our experts perform dynamic energy balances for any system:
  • Calculation of solar radiation impinging on any outdoor structure: industrial, agricultural or living building, solar panels, industrial equipment
  • Calculation of shadow effects for complex geometries
  • Dynamic thermal balances involving radiative, convective, conductive and evaporative heat transfer terms
  • Prediction of the temperature evolution and power requirement of systems depending on geographical location and weather data

  • Microalgae production systems: open ponds, photobioreactors
  • Greenhouses
  • Positive energy buildings
  • Outdoor industrial processes (such as heap leaching)

In the frame of the BISIGODOS European project, Caspeo has developed a simulation tool for photobioreactors installed outdoor. The tool allows to optimize the photobioreactor design and management in order to reduce the power requirements linked to the temperature control of the microalgae culture:
