C-LING – COMPREHENSIVE CORROSION PREVENTION

Supply, installation & service of a corrosion protection solution - preventing the corrosion of the interior of monopiles through sealing the cable aperture in the base of a monopile.

Solving the Corrosion Challenge

Delivering a comprehensive, engineered solution to an offshore wind industry challenge.

Published case studies and information in the public domain have highlighted the asset integrity challenge.

The design premise for the majority of early offshore wind farms utilised a sealed, deoxygenated environment as the primary corrosion protection strategy. This hasn’t always been successful, and the problem still remains.

Several retrofit mitigation strategies have been attempted, moving sites away from the original design intent.

Introducing the C-Ling® Solution

The engineered C-Ling® solution will minimise corrosion within the internal structure of the foundation.

The C-Ling® solution:

  • Will minimise corrosion within the internal structure of the foundation by preventing the exchange of water.
  • Reinstates the intended corrosion prevention strategy for the foundation.
  • Has been pre-engineered so that it is suitable for all sites.
  • Is a dynamic self-sealing solution that adapts to the changing environment.
  • Requires no ongoing maintenance.
  • Has been engineered, to be installed using a single tower team from the lower working platform. Minimising the risk to personnel, structures and facilities.
  • Utilises a patent pending, pressure differential to create a perfect, water tight seal.
  • Can prevent the transfer of acidic water and anodic material to the environment.

Driving Innovation through Collaboration

Delivered in partnership by Advanced Insulation and CWind; a culmination of innovative thinking, engineering skill, and well-executed delivery.
