Effective asset management is crucial for optimizing the cost of energy from any power generation facility. But with the current generation of turbines coming out of warranty and the advent of the ISO55001 standard, asset management is particularly important right now for offshore wind farms. It is also a particularly difficult challenge for these facilities. Remote locations make site access difficult, and the list of factors to be considered is daunting.
