Corrosion protection for wind turbines
|Publication Date:||1 March 2016|
The objectives of this recommended practice are to:
provide an internationally acceptable level of safety by defining minimum requirements for corrosion protection systems (in combination with referenced standards, recommended practices, guidelines, etc.)
serve as a reference document between suppliers and purchasers related to design, construction, installation and in-service inspection - serve as a guideline for designers, suppliers, purchasers and regulators
specify procedures and requirements for corrosion protection systems
serve as a basis for verification of corrosion protection systems scope and application.
The recommended practice is applicable to all types of wind turbines.
The recommended practice is applicable to the design of complete structures, including towers, substructures and foundations, but excluding wind turbine components such as nacelles and rotors.
This recommended practice gives recommendations for the following: Corrosion control including
cathodic protection (CP), orrosion protective coatings and
use of corrosion resistant materials.
