Building corrosion-resistant equipment for harsh industrial environments

Although it is hard to find materials that are 100% resistant to the effects of corrosive elements, careful selection of materials, especially when combining them in a product, can reduce corrosion.

Nanomyte’s hydrophobic and corrosion-fighting materials cut O&M costs & let turbines work longer

NANOMYTE SuperAi is a nanocomposite coating that imparts anti-icing properties to the underlying substrate. Surfaces treated with SuperAi exhibit reduced ice adhesion (by up to 60%), thereby preventing ice buildup.

Smart coatings mean longer offshore life

Dubbed ACORN, for Advanced Coating for Offshore Renewable Energy, the effort also includes developing a new coating to prevent cavitation erosion of marine turbine components.

E.ON uses innovative corrosion-protection technology for offshore wind-farm foundations

E.ON is setting new standards for the construction and operation of offshore wind farms. The company announced that it is protecting all 60 steel foundations of the Arkona offshore wind park in the German Baltic Sea with a special anti-corrosion coating. During the 25-year operating period, the metal-dissolving corrosion process is expected to slow significantly.
