Effective corrosion prevention for extending asset life
Offshore wind turbines by nature are exposed to some of the harshest environmental conditions in the world. The structural integrity and life of offshore wind turbines is the single most important driver thought a turbine’s service life. Corrosion is posing an ever increasing risk to the depletion of structural integrity and featuring more regularly on operator’s agendas. In addition, a number of offshore wind farms are nearing the half-way point in design life. An effective corrosion prevention strategy and system for key metallic structural components such as foundations and turbine tower segments is therefore imperative throughout operation life to ensure the longevity of the offshore wind industry.
The conference will focus on technical challenges for the installation, reliability, longevity and monitoring of corrosion prevention systems, advanced protection methods and corrosion design considerations.
Join this focussed knowledge exchange and discuss:
- New developed guidelines for offshore wind corrosion protection
- Lessons learnt from existing wind farms: external and internal monopile corrosion
- Occurrence of Microbially influenced corrosion (MIC)
- Economical viability of cathodic protection systems and coatings
- CP performance and corrosion monitoring to manage asset integrity
