In a previous blog post we discussed how corrosion of offshore renewable energy (ORE) devices comes at a high cost. The European project NeSSIE, in which Sirris is a partner, wants to tackle the problem of corrosion in the ORE sector by creating an opportunity to demonstrate anti-corrosion solutions.

Earlier this year, WindEurope - the voice of the European wind industry - interviewed Pieter Jan Jordaens of OWI-Lab. You can read the highlights of this interview below.

Despite their relatively long life cycle, the usage time of composites does not last forever. Certainly for larger composite constructions we have to take the life cycle into account. To find solutions for the processing of large composite structures, Sirris (SLC-Lab and OWI-Lab) together with Agoria and Go4cCircle launched the feasibility study CompositeLoop.

Tackling corrosion issues and developing new materials in the wave, tidal and offshore wind sectors across Europe could save up to €84,000 million for developers and create up to €82,000 million of supply chain opportunities by 2050, according to two new reports Commissioned by the NeSSIE project, in which Sirris is a partner.

Research in the context of the VIS-OWOME project has demonstrated that very accurate power curves for offshore wind turbines can be created using machine-learning techniques. Good results can be achieved in very short terms and with limited efforts.

OWI-Lab's long-term R&D effort at the Belwind offshore wind farm monitoring the temporal evolution of stiffness of offshore monopile foundations received an award at the Offshore Wind Energy conference in London.
