Growth through Research, development & demonstration in Offshore Wind

Wind and salty water: corrosion and fatigue. Not so fast!

Listen to the second edition of GROW-to-GO with Richard Pijpers and Joke Luyten of TNO.

Rust, or – to be more specific – corrosion, is unfortunately affecting offshore structures. Richard Pijpers and Joke Luyten, senior scientist and project manager at TNO respectively, give insight into the corrosion of monopiles, an issue that is very relevant for the future of offshore wind. They want to understand better how the offshore wind structures degrade, in order to improve the design and optimise maintenance.

Listen now!
