About This PhD Project

Project Description

Optimisation of the off-shore wind supply chain.

A significant amount of investment is being done in renewable sector especially in the off-shore wind farms in the UK. This investment is being done on the back of various subsidies that will end in the next five years. It is therefore important for the survival of this relatively young sector that the supply chain the set up and operating costs be optimised. This research will focus on understanding the supply chain for the off-shore wind farms, to develop a methodology for network representations of the supply chain in various phases (from design to decommissioning), to identify the main cost components, to develop LCA and to develop optimisation techniques for specific issues in network design and operation using network/discrete optimisation techniques. The ideal candidate should have a good foundation in operations research as well as skills in the use of statistical and optimisation packages and a basic understanding of the development of web applications for visualisation.
