(This article belongs to the Special Issue Maintenance Management of Wind Turbines)
Maintenance optimization has received special attention among the wind energy research community over the past two decades. This is mainly because of the high degree of uncertainties involved in the execution of operation and maintenance (O&M) activities throughout the lifecycle of wind farms. The increasing complexity in offshore maintenance execution demands applied research and brings forth a need to develop problem-specific maintenance decision-making models. In this paper, a mathematical model is proposed to assist wind farm stakeholders in making critical resource- related decisions for corrective maintenance at offshore wind farms (OWFs), considering uncertainties in turbine failure information.
