Corrosion Prevention

Supply, installation & service of a corrosion protection solution - preventing the corrosion of the interior of monopiles through sealing the cable aperture in the base of a monopile

Solving the Corrosion Challenge

Delivering a comprehensive, engineered solution to an offshore wind industry challenge

Published case studies and information in the public domain have highlighted the asset integrity challenge.

The design premise for the majority of early offshore wind farms utilised a sealed, deoxygenated environment as the primary corrosion protection strategy. This hasn’t always been successful, and the problem still remains.

Several retrofit mitigation strategies have been attempted, moving sites away from the original design intent.

Driving Innovation through Collaboration

Delivered in partnership by Advanced Insulation and CWind; a culmination of innovative thinking, engineering skill, and well-executed delivery

Advanced Insulation is a global leader in the engineering, manufacture and application of insulation and protection systems to the offshore renewables and oil & gas industries.

Utilising world leading chemistry, Advanced Insulation has developed and formulated a cost effective solution to minimise all associated risks.

CWind Taiwan, part of the Global Marine Group, is responsible for delivering asset management and power cable services topside and subsea, to the offshore renewables and utilities market.

In addition, we have a wealth of offshore wind experience and the capability to install and monitor systems to immediately restore corrosion prevention functionality to assets, protecting them from further damage and reducing further risk.

Introducing the C-Ling® Solution

The engineered C-Ling® solution will minimise corrosion within the internal structure of the foundation

  • Will minimise corrosion within the internal structure of the foundation by preventing the exchange of water.
  • Reinstates the intended corrosion prevention strategy for the foundation.
  • Has been pre-engineered so that it is suitable for all sites.
  • Is a dynamic self-sealing solution that adapts to the changing environment.
  • Requires no ongoing maintenance.
  • Has been engineered, to be installed using a single tower team from the lower working platform. Minimising the risk to personnel, structures and facilities.
  • Utilises a patent pending, pressure differential to create a perfect, water tight seal.
  • Can prevent the transfer of acidic water and anodic material to the environment.
