NoordzeeWind carries out an extensive measurement and evaluation program as part of the Offshore Wind Farm Egmond aan Zee (OWEZ) project. The technical part of the measurement and evaluation program considers topics as climate statistics, wind and wave loading, detailed performance monitoring of the wind turbines, etc. The datasets are available in the public domain. The data that are analyzed in this report to characterize wind, wave and currents, are taken from a 116m height meteorological mast, located 18km offshore for the coast of Egmond aan Zee, the Netherlands. According to the measurement and evaluation program the measured data should be reported periodically. This report represents the first of those periodic reports on wave measurements. Since from June 2005 to December 2006 only little data are available this report includes all available data for that period.
