Dataset for European Installed Offshore Wind Turbines (until year end 2017)



This dataset is aimed to list and collect the main characteristics of the European Offshore Wind Farms (to end of 2017).
Firstly, this work wants to update and extend the one started by Zhang et al. [1], who gathered the main information and identified the drivetrain types for some of offshore EU wind turbines’ installed, until the end of 2011.
Secondly, the wind turbines belonging to the population studied by Carroll et al. [2], [3] (in their reliability database), are identified and analysed more in details.
