Seminar, Thursday 26th of September 2013 in Esbjerg.
Reasonable service life and low maintenance costs are important to limit the costs related to offshore wind energy production. This requires that the remote wind farms are adequately protected against corrosion in the harsh marine environments. Expansion of offshore wind energy production has generated very useful experiences on both successful applications of corrosion protection and on unpleasant surprises of insufficient protection systems. The seminar will bring forward some of these experiences focusing on how we may check, whether the protection is working as intended. Thus the key topic is controlling the corrosion protection – by design, modelling, quality control, inspections and monitoring. The corrosion protection system should be considered as an integrated part of the cycle of design, installation and service of the turbines. Examples will be given from various types of corrosion protection and for the different corrosion zones that the turbine covers from atmospheric parts through the splash zone and into the immersed zone and sediment.
The seminar may be relevant for personnel working e.g. for wind farm owners or operators, designers of turbines or foundations, consultancy companies, subcontractors etc., but the topics may also be of interest for others not involved in the wind industry but wishing for more information on securing the optimum service life of a design. Knowledge on corrosion of metallic materials is beneficial, but not necessary for attending the seminar.
