Using Site-Specific Metocean Data Means More Accurate LCoE Forecasting for Offshore Wind Projects
By affecting the ability to undertake both planned maintenance and reactive repairs, metocean conditions, such as wave, current and wind characteristics, have a significant impact on the effective operation and maintenance (O&M) of fixed and floating offshore wind assets. Unless site-specific metocean data has been incorporated in a project’s early development, it is possible that the built assets may not be able to consistently achieve the performance forecast – because the ability of metocean conditions to hamper O&M activities has not been accounted for in sufficient detail.
