UK Wants Huge Expansion In Offshore Wind Power

mxf8bv Re:Maintenance requirements? (264 comments)

1.5 years are ~500 days. That's 80*500=40,000 Turbinedays.
You cite 75,000 maintenance trips.
So you're saying they visited each turbine twice a day on average? From a helicopter?
Either you got the numbers wrong or they should have camped up there.
