The objective of this study is to implement the principles of Resilience Engineering (RE) for the maintenance management of Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) systems by taking into account human and organizational factors. Resilience concepts are integrated into existing maintenance management elements and a resilient model is developed and applied to OWT in order to manage the maintenance related risks. The four main capabilities proposed by RE, i.e. responding, monitoring, anticipating and learning, are linked to a three level resilience system in order to prevent or mitigate OWT maintenance failures. The paper presents the applicability and effectiveness of RE in preventing accidents/incidents and system failures, and learning activities.
