Lightning risk offshore

Lightning has been more problematic offshore than expected.  The answer, however, lies with providing wind turbine blades with better methods of lightning protection, as used on the more problematic land-based sites, rather than looking for systems to ease handling and replacement of damaged blades. The consequences of lightning strikes can be severe if systems are not adequately protected.
