Cost-efficient systems to extend asset lifetime
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:
- Performance analysis of cathodic protection systems for efficient corrosion management
- Lessons learnt from existing wind farms: external and internal monopile corrosion
- Early warning signs that indicate Microbially Induced Corrosion (MIC)
- Coating systems to increase reliability and avoid costly repairs
- Advances in CP performance and corrosion monitoring to manage asset integrity
- Update on new guidelines and standards for offshore wind corrosion protection to comply with latest requirements
