Offshore Wind Accelerator Tender: Corrosion Protection for Secondary Steel Components Call for entries from companies and consortia interested to undertake a study looking into all aspects of corrosion including the identification of issues, protection measures available and mitigation options for secondary steel components and construction details on offshore wind substructures. The insights from the study will be used to develop industry guidance on the best options available and recommendations on best practice strategies for OWA partners.
The main objectives of this work are to:
1.Explore above water internal and external corrosion protection requirements and mitigation options
2.Research the design and application of each mitigation option including detail on their in-service performance, reliability, repair needs and retrofit applicability
3.Construct a corrosion protection and mitigation framework to inform the design of secondary steel components
4.Identify industry gaps and opportunities for further development
