SANTA FE, N.M. 7/6/12 (PennWell) -- Flow Science Inc. has been selected by the New York Power Authority to provide water flow simulation software for flows at various hydropower plants in New York.
Flow Science is a privately-held software company that specializes in transient, free-surface computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software for industrial and scientific applications.
The New Mexico-based company says NYPA will use its software to "enhance its modeling capabilities for its Niagara Power Project and, in due course, expand its use to its other projects and facilities."
NYPA is America's largest state power organization, with eight hydropower plants and more than 4,300 MW of generating capacity.
Flow Science also recently announced an international association agreement with Don Computing to sell and support Flow Science's "Flow 3-D" software in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
The company already has distributors in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia.
HydroWorld.com reported in July 2011 that the company had opened an office in Tokyo, Japan.
