MAREWIND project, which addresses the main aspects related with materials durability and maintenance in offshore structures, started last December and Kick off Meeting was held on 13th -14th January. The project is funded by the European Union under the programme H2020 and is coordinated by LUREDERRA.
With the combined forces of key-players in the current value chain of wind energy, MAREWIND covers a set of ambitious targets focused on enhancing corrosion protection systems and durability, effective and durable antifouling solutions without using biocides, erosion protection and mechanical reinforcement in wind blades, predictive modelling and monitoring and increasing recyclability.
Consortium Partners and cores business are one of the strongest points of MAREWIND. Consortium is composed of 16 partners from seven different countries of EU, including technological partners experts on main areas of materials and technologies to be improved, manufacturing companies and maintenance, covering the whole value chain of wind offshore, as well as operators of offshore renewables.
