LEANWIND - Logistic efficiencies and naval architecture for wind installations with novel developments

Published 02 October 2014

This project seeks to apply lean principles to the offshore wind farm project lifecycle. The primary LEANWIND objective is to provide cost reductions across the offshore wind farm lifecycle and supply chain through the application of lean principles and the development of state-of-the-art technologies and tools.

The main role of SINTEF Energy research in this EU FP7 project is to develop and use simulation tools for the operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms. These tools will be applied to the operation and maintenance strategies considered in the project and will be used in a cost model to evaluate and validate the innovations developed in the rest of the project.
