This paper considers the asset management of offshore wind farms and, in particular, how this will change as wind farms increase significantly in capacity and move to sites further offshore. Health monitoring, industrial operational structures, infrastructure, operations and maintenance and operational strategies are discussed based on the experiences and expectations of industry partners across the operational cycle of a wind farm. The exercise was undertaken through discussions with UK and European industrial companies and fellow academics to obtain their experiences to date, better define the challenges the industry expects to face in the coming years and establish the areas of significant research interest from an industrial point of view. This paper is of interest to both industrial and academic members of the offshore wind community who are interested in the challenges of future asset management strategy.
