Wind power

Wind power is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy technologies and also one of the most mature technologies, originating back hundreds of years where settlers used the power of the wind for grinding grain and pumping water.

Today windmills are moving to windier and more remote locations offshore resulting in challenges very different than for traditional on-shore windmills. A marine environment is far more challenging than inland location, giving rise to corrosion issues like staining and pitting corrosion which can occur due to the splashing of seawater.
