The development of far offshore wind farms requires new logistical solutions on how to operate and maintain wind turbines. One method involves the use of computer based simulation as means of analyzing the effects of operation and maintenance procedures when moving further out. This method allows various scenarios to be performed, while also identifying key operational and safety specifications. The aim of the study was to investigate how moving further offshore affects the risk picture regarding emergency response and O&M. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was chosen to provide a more complete understanding of our research problem. The results showed an increase in risk when moving further offshore, due to Important factors such as weather, distance to shore and the size of the components. An accurate visualization of the actual O&M procedure was provided by using the simulation software MAINTYS. The results of our research can prove helpful for future investigations in the field of far offshore energy production, while also considering computer based simulations as an option for the planning and development of project.
