Steel does not “react that optimal” to these offshore conditions that cause degradation.

The corrosion of monopiles, a threat to the future of offshore wind? Senior scientist Richard Pijpers and project manager Joke Luyten, both working at TNO, want to improve the design and optimise maintenance of monopiles. How? To get a better understanding of the degradation – caused by corrosion and fatigue – of the offshore wind structures. Listen to their stories.
