CLUSTER EVENT: Reducing offshore wind O&M costs through innovative solutions

Date: Wednesday, 3 November 2021
Time: 10:00-13:00 CET

Operation & Maintenance (O&M) costs are the main cost driver in offshore energy due to the difficult accessibility to the wind-turbines, but also due to the environmental conditions. O&M costs can account for up to 30% of the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) for an offshore wind farm. Furthermore, deployment in deeper waters and farther from shore increases O&M prices. 

For that reason, it is of the utmost importance to develop innovative solutions for supplying electricity at cost-effective levels, contributing to attain the expected fall of the LCoE thus ensuring offshore wind approach to non-renewable levels.

The WATEREYE project is organising this cluster event with the aim to promote collaboration between related EU-funded projects. At the same time, this event constitutes a perfect space for open discussion while sharing experiences and fostering synergies for future research.

Don’t miss the chance to learn about the latest developments and results from some of the most promising EU-funded projects focused on reducing offshore wind O&M costs:

  1. WATEREYE Project, O&M tools integrating accurate structural health in offshore energy.
  2. ROMEO Project, Reliable OM decision tools and strategies for high LCoE reduction on Offshore wind.
  3. MooringSense Project, Mooring system integrity management through monitoring, digital twin and control technologies for cost reduction and increased efficiency.
  4. FLOTANT Project, Innovative, low cost, low weight and safe floating wind technology optimized for deep water wind sites
  5. INNTERESTING Project, Innovative Future-Proof Testing Methods for Reliable Critical Components in Wind Turbines.
  6. ATOMS Project, Auxiliary Towable Operation and Maintenance System for offshore wind towers.

Note: The event will be held online and free to attend. Registration will be on a first-come basis. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation mail to join the event.
