Offshore Windmills

The corrosion issues in offshore windmills are similar to the corrosion issues of an oil and gas platform. Subsea a proper cathodic protection (design) is required and above water atmospheric corrosion can ruin the structure. Meaning topside a proper coating qualification is required. From offshore (oil and gas) experiences, Ironhaven can provide the following services:

  • Cathodic protection (design)
  • Coating surveys (NACE CIP certified)
  • Atmospheric corrosion
  • MIC (microbiological corrosion) inside the piles
  • Corrosion assessments
  • Remaining lifetime studies
