CROWN project aims to reduce costs for offshore turbine foundations

on .

In a programme that could save large wind farms millions of pounds both in CAPEX and OPEX, advanced metallic coatings with potential self-healing properties are being developed that could lower the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) significantly. Managed by LIC, the CROWN Project is a partnership of corrosion, manufacture, installation and modelling industry leaders dedicated to making costly, and difficult-to-fit sacrificial anodes that need bulky steel support structures, a thing of the past. LICengineering and LICenergy is looking at how the widespread use of tons of aluminium and steel, costing several tens of thousands of pounds per offshore turbine foundation. can be replaced by the large-scale use of self-healing TSA metallic coatings, explains Diego Cocco, Senior Structural Design Engineer at LICenergy.

The "new" concept of pile driving flanged monopiles for offshore wind-turbines is not as new as it seems. The concept is developed by LICengineering A/S in 1998 when we initiated a research scheme to investigate and test this particular feature. '

LICengineering and Akselos have been awarded the prestigious EUROSTARS innovation grant 2016/2017. This award is handed to projects that successfully implement a promising, new and disruptive technology with a clear economic, societal and environmental impact compared to existing solutions. Working closely with the oil & gas industry, we developed a clear understanding of the problems that this industry is facing especially in the offshore sector:
