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.
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[...]
