Due to their location at sea, offshore installations are subject to an exceptionally high level of corrosion. 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.

Due to their location at sea, offshore installations are subject to an exceptionally high level of corrosiveness. No surprise this is a hot topic on the masterclass 'Corrosion solutions for offshore renewable energy devices'. Specialist in the field Hendrik Müller will give a brief overview of the condition of corrosion protection systems on offshore wind turbines, while C-Cube will explain how its EIS based measurement can be used to keep track of the quality of coatings. Sirris will give an insight into the current state of the art, techniques for monitoring and the road ahead.

The increasing demand for traceable products requires them to be given codes. However, applying these codes can compromise the properties of the material. New technologies can provide a solution here.

Developments of renewable energy sources, such as ocean energy, can be accelerated if companies and research organisations work together. The Ocean Power Innovation Network (OPIN), in which OWI-Lab/Sirris is a partner, seeks to build and foster such collaborations through Collaborative Innovation Groups (CIGs). One CIG, focussing on corrosion monitoring, has recently been launched, and we need your input!

Products developed for operations in harsh environments can truly benefit from innovation in sustainable design and materials. On 22 October, Sirris organised a webinar focusing on different challenging situations where the right choice in material and design can make or break your product. You can find the presentations in this article.

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) can be used as a fast and non-contact tool for quality inspection or condition assessment of material/product surfaces. The application domain of HSI is very broad. Examples of possible use-cases are the autonomous detection of corrosion and determining the condition of coatings.

In any kind of industry where water meets steel, corrosion is an underestimated threat - and a very expensive one too: corrosion costs for the European region alone amount to 500 billion euro, according to a DNV-GL report. However, there is no generally accepted approach which is followed in the industry to assess the risk of corrosion and use this for smart corrosion management.
