O&M tools integrating accurate structural health in offshore energy

Project description

Smart maintenance of offshore wind farms

The EU is a world leader in the fast-growing offshore wind sector. It has contributed significantly to wind power development through ambitious policies and investments. To increase annual offshore wind energy production, the EU-funded WATEREYE project will develop an integral solution, enabling wind farm operators to accurately predict the need for future maintenance strategies. The project is motivated by the current limitations of offshore wind operation and maintenance (O&M) efficiency. The WATEREYE solution aims to reduce O&M costs, which can represent up to 30 % of the levelised cost of electricity, thanks to accurate structural health monitoring and control of offshore wind farms. Through the deployment of novel monitoring systems, this solution will focus on predicting the corrosion degradation rate of offshore structures.
