Maintenance Organizations and -Strategies for Large Scale Wind Parks

The purpose of the project is using advanced simulation modeling to investigate the effect on operational expenditure (OPEX) and levelized cost of energy (LCOE) from different maintenance organization configurations and different maintenance strategies.

Centre for Industrial Asset Management in collaboration with the Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind (NORCOWE) engages in a research project within offshore wind.  The purpose of the project is using advanced simulation modeling to investigate the effect on operational expenditure (OPEX) and levelized cost of energy (LCOE) from different maintenance organization configurations and different maintenance strategies.

An additional goal is to develop a simulation tool for decision support to be used by wind park developers in concept studies and for long term strategic decisions.

Here is a video (external link) demonstrating the current version of the simulation tool.
