Scotland is committed to becoming a net-zero society by 2045 with energy key to achieving this target. Offshore wind turbines allow us to harvest energy from remote locations, but are difficult and costly to maintain. Through investigation of different turbine forms and design of their optimal maintenance strategies, we aim to make offshore wind as cost-efficient as possible, benefitting supplier, customer and the environment.
