On 2 December Sirris is organising the masterclass ‘Corrosion solutions for offshore renewable energy devices’, which will cover the challenge of corrosion in offshore renewable energy and targets a broad audience from the entire offshore value-chain, including problem owners, solution providers, O&M companies and research institutes. Six speakers will give a presentation. In this blogpost we will give you a glimpse of three.
The presentation by Ainhoa Cortes from the Basque research alliance CEIT will focus on the concept of the WATEREYE Project. WATEREYE will develop tools for corrosion monitoring and RUL (‘Remaining Useful Life-time’) forecasting for offshore wind turbine structures. These tools will allow the wind farm operator to achieve more efficient inspections, enabling him to predict failure in the tower structure or coating degradation.
