Simulation analysis

27 January 2023 - Published by Charlotte Lundsberg Baumgartner

This paper look at eight different simulation models, which concretize different logistics strategies and dismantling configurations. 

The models were created with the software "Plant Simulation" (Version 16) from Siemens. This is a "Discrete Event Simulation Software" for modeling, simulation and analysis of logistic systems. The Discrete Event Simulation (DES) is a simulation method for representing real systems, which can be divided into logical, temporally subdivided or sequential processes.

All models also include other processes such as the pre-decommissioning activities, the removal of the offshore cables, and the dismantling of the MetMast (MM) as well as the offshore high-voltage substation (OHVS


In terms of parameters, a large number are taken into account i.e., the wave height and the wind speed. 

The basis for the data in this paper are data sets from the Danish Coastal Authority. The Danish Coastal Authority, which has positioned several sensors along the Danish North Sea coast, collects weather and wave information.


The paper was finalized by the DecomTools partner Emden Leer
