Asimptote is a technology leader for engineering of energy systems and components. We want to deliver the best and the latest technology to develop energy systems that are cleaner, more efficient and more sustainable than what is common today.
Asimptote consists of a backbone scientific/engineering staff, together with a network organization that brings together top-level experts in all the aspects of energy engineering. Operating as a network organization gives us the flexiblity to form teams of exactly the right experts for each assignment. Read more about our consultancy services>>
Our consultants make use of special software that has been developed at top European and American engineering universities and research insitutes. Asimptote turns this research software into professional-quality simulation packages that you can purchase to perform your own modeling and simulation tasks Read more about our software>>
In short, we help you solve engineering problems that you cannot address with standard technology.
Asimptote was founded in 2011. It grew out of a long-standing cooperation between researchers in thermal energy engineering from across Europe. In order to form the company, the researchers joined hands with the companies Gensos and VORtech. Gensos is a company that develops technology for sustainable energy; it has delivered the manpower to organize the consultancy activities. VORtech is a company of scientific software engineers; it provides the software engineering services that are needed for Asimptote's software.
Asimptote wishes to remain a technology leader. Therefore, we focus on projects and software that go beyond the state of the art. When technology that is advanced today will become commonplace in the future, Asimptote will move on and leave this technology to the large system integrators. Instead, we will be offering the expertise on technology that is considered new by then.
About the Name
We know that the name of the curve in analytic geometry is spelled "asymptote": we exploited that similarity, but ASIMPTOTE is an acronym for Advanced SIMulation for Power and TOTal Energy systems. The similarity with asymptote suggests the strive to reach our ideal for software and services.
Although Asimptote itself provides services around the globe, we also work with resellers. Resellers have the advantage that they know and understand the needs of the local market and can talk to customers personally. Read more about our reseller program>>.
Asimptote wants to be a network organization, closely cooperating with institutes and companies that can provide special expertise. Read more about our partners. Read more about our partners>>.
