Wind energy is expected to provide the largest contribution to the renewable energy targets for 2030. MAREWIND will provide advanced durable materials and recyclable solutions which reduce materials use contributing to the European Union’s climate goals. Advanced materials and nanotechnologies developed will contribute to accelerating clean energy to maintain Europe in the lead position of this sector critical for the energy transition. Furthermore, MAREWIND solution will improve the offshore wind energy sector, extend the service life of the wind facilities, as well as boost economic growth and create new job opportunities across Europe.
On the 9th June 2021, the MAREWIND consortium gathered to discuss the project status and progress since its official launch in December 2020. The MAREWIND consortium partners met online due to the current COVID-19 restrictions across Europe. Progress During the 1-day online session, all partners presented the work done for each of the work packages[...]
Have you ever wondered why wind energy is so important? Nowadays, it is the most efficient technology to produce clean power for several industries and electricity for the people in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. These benefits motivate European governments to look for investment and further development in the wind energy sector as key[...]
Offshore wind turbines are often exposed to a variety of harsh conditions such as abrasion, bio-fouling, corrosion. These conditions seriously damage the components of the wind turbines. Moreover, due to the constant exposure of the marine moisture, splash and ice formations and based on the location of the windmill plan, some of the turbines have[...]
