PhD Title - O&M modelling for existing and novel floating wind turbines

The overall aim of this PhD is to determine how floating offshore wind O&M costs compare to existing fixed bottom turbines for both traditional HAWTs and novel wind turbine concepts. This comparison will also consider cost reductions related to advanced forecasting and prognostic techniques for maintenance scheduling.
