Paper Abstract:      Wind energy is one of the most promising renewable sources. In order to get more benefits from the wind, wind farms are being moved off the shore since there are available high wind and less sensitivity to noise. Offshore wind turbines are normally unmanned; hence any operation of them is automatic or remotely controlled. It is therefore important to realize an operations center, where the offshore wind farms can be monitored and operated. In order to support the operations center, data integration is taken into consideration. However, one of challenges faced by the offshore wind industry data integration is that most components of a wind power plant (WPP) are produced by different vendors or companies. Each component has its own software and perhaps its own database. As a result, a software environment of a WPP consists of multiple applications having incompatible interfaces and data formats and not being able to communicate with each other. In this paper, we propose an architecture for offshore wind data handling using the Enterprise Services Bus and web service technologies to seamlessly integrate different applications and hence, facilitating the collaboration and data exchange between the offshore wind partners. Based on the proposed architecture, we developed a system prototype and present it with three different scenarios.
