Steadfast economic benefit from real time wave measurements

One of the key challenges facing any offshore wind operator, and one which has high significance for their success, is around the accessibility of assets. However, a new study by Trios Renewables, the University of Strathclyde and wave sensor specialists Miros has, for the first time, provided evidence of the potential benefits of direct wave measurements for offshore wind farms.

The requirement to continually take operation-critical decisions, which determine when to deploy maintenance and repair crews, is an ongoing issue, with those decisions being taken against the backdrop of the potential impact on capital and operational costs.

Accessing turbines at the optimum time to ensure operational efficiency and avoid lost production, while guaranteeing crew safety, means there is a continual process of evaluation of data to inform decision-making.
