Requirements for corrosion protection for new large offshore wind farms are extended to 25 years’ maintenance-free service lifetime. Therefore, ISO 12944 is being updated. To bring down construction cost for offshore wind, initiatives have been taken to industrialize the coating application process and use standard components.
Magnesium (Mg) for biodegradable medical implant devices are limited by fast degradation rates of Mg. The study presents alloy design and thermomechancial processing to optimize mechanical and biological properties of a new proprietary Mg alloy. Corrosion profiles were evaluated by in vitro and in vivo studies.
Transmission substation structure component design / construction and corrosion risk factors, details on inspection findings / evaluations and mitigating actions, recommended actions for future integrity assessments, and recommended structure design and surveillance practices to optimize lessons learned.
