Abstract

This paper presents the forecast model developed for theDanish test site for wave energy. It includes results from the projectResource Assessment, Forecasts and wave energy converters’ operationand maintenance (O&M) strategies at DanWEC and beyond which hasbeen initiated to deliver detailed information on the environmental conditionsat DanWEC and to review implementation of O&M procedures,which will ultimately improve wave energy converters’ operation and reducetheir costs. The forecast model is based on an hindcast wave modelwhich has been validated against data from wave measuring buoys and itprovides six days wave and current prognostic for the test site. The forecastmodel is coupled with an O&M tool that helps planning operationand reduce costs for users and operators of the test site.
