Imenco Corrosion Technology has been awarded a contract to deliver equipment for corrosion protection (cathodic protection) of the offshore wind farm – Hornsea Project One off the Yorkshire coast in UK.
The contract has been awarded by Ørsted Wind Power – the world’s largest developer and operator of offshore renewable energy. The wind farm consists of 174 wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,2 Gigawatt.
The contract is for systems to connect sacrificial anodes to the turbine foundations and consist of Imenco’s Piranha earthing connectors, cables and cable protectors.
Following Imenco’s first delivery of cathodic protection equipment for offshore wind projects in 2016, the company has been awarded contracts for delivery of similar solutions for 8 European offshore wind power projects in UK, Germany and Belgium.
Imenco has developed a series of solutions for connection of sacrificial anodes to various subsea structures. The solutions are all made to be installed without the use of divers and are all based on the same patented technology. In addition to offshore wind, the main application is found in lifetime extension of offshore oil and gas assets like pipelines, subsea production systems as well as floating and fixed platforms.
