Abstract

In the offshore wind energy sector, there are many different conceptual wind turbine structures, from traditional mono-pile structures to floating platforms. The management of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS) issues is essential as early as possible at the beginning of the turbine conceptual design phase. This paper presents guidelines to compare different offshore wind energy assets and their critical components from a system availability and safety point of view. Classification and evaluation criteria for different Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety, and Inspectability (RAMS + I) factors are outlined and discussed.
