Offshore wind turbines are an attractive source for clean and renewable energy for reasons including their proximity to population centers and their potential for improved capacity factors with better wind resource. However, one obstacle to the more widespread utilization of offshore wind energy is that recent projections of offshore operations and maintenance (O&M) costs vary between 2 to 5 times the costs of onshore O&M. One way to reduce those costs is through a simple yet effective… CONTINUE READING
