As part of the drive train and generator track this paper will present the results of a comparative study on the availability of offshore wind turbine drive train types. Twelve different drive train types will be compared. There is currently a lack of offshore availability data for wind turbines with different drive trains. This paper provides a unique overview of expected availability of various offshore drive trains. These results could contribute to future studies or models of offshore annual production, cost of energy and so on.
