This report details the purpose and functionality of an Excel-based tool for simulating the operations and maintenance (O&M) phase of wave energy arrays. The tool is intended to provide developers of wave energy technology with the framework to estimate operational expenditure and undertake sensitivity studies into the design of their devices and O&M strategies.

Every aspect of the code which forms the basis of the tool is described in detail. An index is provided from page 155 as a form of reference guide for the document. The work has stemmed from an Engineering Doctorate sponsored by Wave Energy Scotland in partnership with the Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (
