Offshore wind energy is expected to be the most significant source of future electricity supply in Europe. Offshore wind farms are located far from the shores, requiring a fleet of various types of vessels to access sites when maintaining offshore wind turbines. The employment of the vessels is costly, accounting for the majority of the total...

The determination of maintenance strategies is subject to complexity and uncertainty arising from variable offshore wind farm states and inaccuracies in model parameters. The most common method in the existing studies is to adopt an open-loop approach to optimize a maintenance strategy. However, this approach lacks the ability to capture...

Predicting the bending behaviours of a submarine power cable (SPC) is always a tough task due to its complex geometry and inner layer contact, not to mention the stick–slip mechanism. A full-scale finite element model is cumbersome during the early design stage and a more efficient model for practical use is required. Therefore, in this paper...

Wing-diesel engine-powered hybrid ships can effectively reduce fuel consumption and CO<sub>2</sub> emissions by using wind energy as the auxiliary driving power. The energy optimization management of the hybrid system can further improve the ship's energy efficiency. To achieve this purpose, it is significant to establish an effective energy...

A corrosion defect is recognized as one of the most severe phenomena for high-pressure pipelines, especially those served for a long time. Finite-element method and empirical formulas are thereby used for the strength prediction of such pipes with corrosion. However, it is time-consuming for finite-element method and there is a limited...

This paper conducts a numerical analysis on the external surface cracked steel pipes reinforced with Composite Repair System. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) model is developed to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth process is evaluated by the Paris’ law. The effect of FRP-to-steel...

While offshore wind energy is showing enormous potential, effective approaches to enhance its economics are being sought at the same time. The design of maintenance strategy is a type of strategic decision-making for offshore wind farms, aiming to improve energy production and reduce maintenance expenses. As a complicated and challenging task...

Industry design standards such as BS 7910 deployed some empirical formulas for the prediction of stress intensity factor (SIF) based on simulation results from traditional finite element method (FEM). However, such FEM simulation occasionally failed to convince people due to the large discrepancies compared with engineering practice. As a...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) operate in the harsh marine environment with limited accessibility and maintainability. Not only failures are more likely to occur than in land-based turbines, but also corrective maintenance is more expensive. In the present study, a mixed model and signal-based Fault Diagnosis (FD) architecture is...

Submarine power cables are considered lifelines in wind farm engineering, playing a key role in transporting electric current produced by wind turbines or wave converter. Cables inevitably confront combined loadings in deep-sea areas, affecting the integrity and safety during their installation and application. In this paper, the mechanical...

It is of significant importance to optimize the energy consumption of ships in order to improve economy and reduce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. However, the energy use of ships is affected by a series of navigational environmental parameters, which have certain spatial and temporal differences and variability. Therefore, the dynamic...

Flexible risers are designed with strong anti-collapse capacities which enable them to operate in deep-water reservoirs. However, this anti-collapse capacity is susceptible to the pipe curvature in the flooded annulus condition. For the curved riser sections within the touch-down zone, significant reduction of collapse capacity can occur once...

Operation &amp; maintenance (O&amp;M) costs account for a large portion of total life cycle cost for onshore wind energy, and the amount is estimated to be more for offshore wind energy. Developing a sound opportunistic maintenance strategy is a solution to reduce O&amp;M costs and enhance wind energy's competitiveness. When the wind farm is...

As offshore hydrocarbon production moves towards ultra-deep water, flexible risers have to withstand the huge hydro-static pressure without collapse. They are designed with strong collapse capacities, allowing them to operate under the condition where their annuli are flooded by the seawater. However, initial imperfections can weaken the...
