Corrosion protection for floating offshore wind foundation

Coating supplier Hempel is taking part in a project to performance test an offshore corrosion protection system on the semi-submersible floating offshore wind turbine foundation, WindFloat.

By Kari Williamson

The WindFloat from Principle Power has already been deployed with a 2 MW Vestas offshore wind turbine off the coast of Agucadoura, Portugal.

Hempel provides test products for the permanently immersed areas, the splash zone and the above-water line areas of the offshore wind turbine foundation.

The performance of the anticorrosive coatings will be evaluated by exposure at the Agucadoura test site over a two-year period.
