The main objective of ROMEO project is to reduce O&M costs through the development and demonstration of an O&M information management and analytics platform, capable of improving decision making processes by offshore wind farm (WF) operators whilst allowing a transition from corrective maintenance to condition-based maintenance strategies. At the same time, renewable energy technology will be improved, thus contributing to meet the European Union's climate objectives and foster the energy transition (cleaner, safer and more efficient energy).
A flexible and interoperable Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) platform will provide an advanced analytics ecosystem for failure diagnosis and prognosis models to better understand the real time behaviour of the main components of WTGs under operational conditions; maximizing their life span and minimizing O&M costs. Additionally, the project will develop third-generation condition monitoring systems for some WTG components and low-cost structural condition monitoring systems.
The innovations developed within the R&D work packages will be tested in three use cases managed by the wind farm operators of the following projects: Teeside (United Kingdom), Wikinger (Germany) and East Anglia 1 (United Kingdom). This way, the benefits achieved will be demonstrated, and the future replication of the project in other wind farms will be ensured.
