Towering towards the sky, harnessing the earth’s natural elements, wind turbine installations continue to spread across the globe. As the world moves towards net zero, the drive towards renewable energy will continue to grow exponentially. As the turbines themselves move further out of sight, keeping the potential for corrosion and other maintenance issues front of mind becomes even more important.
In 2021 over 93GW of wind energy was installed globally, with approximately 23% of that offshore and 77% onshore. This amounts to an estimated 27,000 wind turbines installed around the world. That is 27,000 new assets to be maintained and protected.
