stUDy oBjECtiVEs anD BEnEFitsthe offshore wind industry has seen a dramatic increase in concern over the this international study brings together critical information and analysis in onecosts and practicalities of operations and maintenance (o&M). there are strategic clear and digestible report; providing much-needed information on o&M costs,and operational concerns in the market: strategically, projects will find finance practices, cost drivers and the future evolution of o&M. this provides concretemore accessible and affordable if they can demonstrate properly developed information for the first time to the whole offshore wind industry includingo&M policies and costings for their planned wind farms; operationally because policy setters, R&D organisations, investors and manufacturers as well as windpeople need to know what challenges they are likely to face throughout the farm operators and developers.wind farm lifetime. Because of the confidential nature of the source data, some information ishowever, while in broad terms the industry is aware of problems arising from presented as averages, aggregates or in an anonymised fashion. however, thisunforeseen failures or costs, objective data related to costs and performance provides the only comprehensive and coherent opportunity to benchmark o&Mhas been hard to obtain from multiple sites to provide reliable benchmarks for activities, costs and performance against the rest of the industry.o&M performance and practices.this stUDy WiLL BEnEFit:» Offshore wind farm owners maximising long term revenues» Developers planning cost efficient offshore wind farms» Investors forecasting financial returns from wind farms» Policy-makers evaluating efficient long term incentives for offshore wind» Manufacturers developing more reliable components and systems» Transport and access providers evaluating business opportunities» Researchers developing more robust wind farm technology and systemsaBoUt t.a.
