Presented at: European Wind Energy Conference 2003, Madrid, Spain, 16-19 juni 2003.

This paper describes two models for modelling the O&M aspects of offshorewind farms. One has been developed by TU-Delft, and the other one by ECN Wind Energy. The features and benefits of both models are illustrated by means of a case study for the 500 MW DOWEC wind farm. The cost modelling led to recommendations for optimising the O&M strategy of the DOWEC wind farm. The paper shows that both models give similar results with respect to the O&M costs. Differences in the downtime are clarified.
