The presence of seamount on the subducting interface of oceanic and continental tectonic plates has potential to alter the characteristics of ground motion due interface earthquakes. In this study, we address the influence of seamount presence on offshore wind turbine response, through a finite element simulation of earthquake and subsequently applying the recorded shaking from earthquake simulation as input to offshore wind turbines. The wind turbine response is computing by incremental dynamic analysis and fragility curves are derived for serviceability and ultimate limits of wind turbines. The effect of hypocenter being above or below the seamount, on the offshore wind turbine fragility is also addressed. © 2021
