In this paper a framework for identifying an appropriate decommissioning method for offshore windfarms is developed and applied. The whole approach is based on Multi-Criteria Decision Aid techniquesthat perform an integrated evaluation of three available wind farms’ decommissioning methods. A numberof evaluation criteria are established and assessed on a semi quantitative basis. The preference of adiverse audience of pertinent stakeholders can be also incorporated in the overall analysis. The frameworkis applied in a case-study in the Netherlands. Even though the stakeholders included were hypotheticaland their preferences only assumed the proposed overall approach, methodology andapplication could be useful for practitioners in the field.
