iWindCR: A remote corrosion detection and monitoring system for offshore wind turbine structures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Remote location and arrangement of offshore wind turbines severely limits the application of in-situ non-destructive corrosion detection methods such as ultrasound, acoustic emission and X-Ray. A Real Time Remote Sensing (RTRS) system has been developed to implement autonomous detection and monitoring, providing exhaustive and detailed information on the corrosion process. Utilising the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) through the integration with satellite and terrestrial mesh network communication, iWindCr, a technology development project funded by the Innovate UK, aims to design a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) of smart miniaturised sensors for corrosion detection and monitoring of the offshore wind turbine structures.
