    Abstract

    In offshore wind energy sector there are many different conceptual wind turbine structures depending on the water depth from traditional mono-pile structures to floating platforms. Decisions made before the formal design phase define strongly the costs and benefits gained through the whole lifecycle of a wind turbine. Management of reliability, availability, maintainability and safety issues (RAMS) are essential as early as possible in the beginning of turbine conceptual design phase. This paper presents guidelines to compare different offshore wind energy assets and their critical components from system availability and safety point of view. Classification and evaluation criteria for different RAMS+I (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety and Inspectability) factors are outlined and discussed
