Assessing Corrosion Protection Systems for Offshore Structures

Günter Binder of the German Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW) shares his report, 'Assessing Corrosion Protection Systems for Offshore Structures', in which he evaluates different kind of corrosion stresses on coatings, and how these work with cathodic protection systems. What works best? What works best in combination without cancelling each other out? What are the observed differences between natural results and laboratory tests?


Interviews on corrosion protection with Carbon Trust and Ramboll Group

The following interviews are focusing on the most innovative areas for corrosion in offshore wind. Find out, furthermore, where the current knowledge gaps are when working with corrosion pitting and monitoring.



In Search of Effective Corrosion Protection

Corrosion has become one of the major challenges the offshore wind industry has to face. How to effectively monitor corrosion and avoid costly repairs is where the research and development activities are focused. Current industry codes and standards require review and expansion.

Fatigue crack growth rates for offshore wind monopile weldments in air and seawater: SLIC inter-laboratory test results

The majority of fatigue crack growth (FCG) data sets available on steels in air and seawater environments are several decades old andmay not be appropriate for structural integrity assessment of offshorewind turbine foundations, which are fabricated using contemporary materials and welding technologies. Therefore, the SLIC joint industry project was formed to investigate the fatigue crack initiation and growth behaviour in offshore wind welded steel foundations. Read the results in the article here written by Ali Mehmanparast, Feargal Brennan, Isaac Tavares, Offshore Renewable Energy Engineering Centre, Cranfield University, UK.


The utilization of Thermally Sprayed Aluminium (TSA) as external corrosion protection system for monopile foundations – The Arkona offshore wind farm case

E.ON Climate & Renewables together with Ramboll presented on that topic at last year's conference. Read the full presentation and find out more about this strategy!

Design of cathodic protection of MP internal from a foundation designer’s point of view

The presentation from COWI Chief Specialist Corrosion Monitoring and Cathodic Protection, Ruth Sørensen, has its special focus on the challenges with GACP & ICCP and the requirements for water replenishment.
