CleanWinTur biofouling solutions for Offshore Wind Turbines

3-Sci is in collaboration with partners including E.ON, Brunel University London, and The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), to launch a new and innovative project named CleanWinTur. The project aims to develop an ultrasonic system that performs continuous condition monitoring and effective anti-fouling to enable the implementation of predictive and or condition-based maintenance and reduce OPEX.


3-Sci’s decommissioning solutions for sub-sea steel.

A project, funded by Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC), is examining the potential application of accelerated corrosion to subsea steel, to provide an additional option for disposing or cutting of steel structures during or after decommissioning. Previous work has concluded that accelerated corrosion may provide significant benefits in reducing costs and environmental impacts, compared to existing practices.
