Researchers at Robert Gordon University (RGU) are developing a software tool which aims to cut maintenance costs for offshore wind turbines.


The RGU team, including Head of the School of Engineering Professor John Steel and PhD student Yashwant Sinha, is focused on developing a tool which would ensure that companies were able to carry out turbine maintenance and sparesholding in the most efficient manner. By inputting specific information generated by an offshore wind farm into the tool, it would then automatically generate an optimal maintenance programme and critical sparesholding inventory tailored to those turbines. This would minimise the direct costs of maintaining the wind farm and maximise the availability and reliability of offshore wind farms and associated grid connections to ensure lowest whole life cycle costs.
