The reliable operation of FINO3 is the prerequisite for a smooth execution of scientific research projects in the field of wind energy carried out on the platform. With the measurement data collected on FINO3, indispensable results are obtained for the optimization of offshore wind farms and their technology.

The main technical objective is the safe operation of the research platform for humans and the environment, while at the same time ensuring the possibility of carrying out high quality measurement campaigns on it. Smooth operation includes regular maintenance and testing of equipment, supply of operating materials, regular review and repair of individual components, organization of research operations, coordination with all relevant authorities, and a variety of individual tasks.

The research platform will make a significant contribution to improving the meteorological, oceanographic and ecological data. In addition, the project also offers small and medium-sized companies the opportunity to build up references and demonstrate their performance under realistic conditions.
