Operations and maintenance (O&M) constitute a significant part of the total costs for offshore wind power,accounting for up to 30% of the total cost of energy with the current technologies1. Cost reduction comesthrough structured and innovative solutions. The ATLANTIS project, which includes ten partners from six different EU countries, aims at establishing a pioneer pilot infrastructure, capable of demonstrating key enabling robotic technologies for inspection and maintenance activities in offshore wind farms.
