MetriCorr subcontracted by NGI to deliver the corrosion and cathodic protection remote monitoring system for Ørsted’s Hornsea 2
NGI – Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, has appointed MetriCorr to be their trusted subcontractor to deliver the corrosion and cathodic protection monitoring system being part of the overall structural monitoring campaign of Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 development. The corrosion and cathodic protection monitoring system will be deployed at six foundations and includes sensors for general corrosion, localized pitting corrosion and paint degradation as well as cathodic protection with a dedicated data acquisition system that automatically pushes data to Ørsted servers on shore.
The Hornsea 2 offshore wind farm in the North Sea is designed to power over 1.3 million households when completed in 2022. The wind farm, set to become the largest in the world, is being developed by leading renewable energy company, Ørsted and will make a significant contribution to their vision of creating a world that runs entirely on green energy.
We are proud to be selected by NGI and Ørsted to deliver the corrosion and cathodic protection monitoring system for Hornsea 2. We believe our track record with Ørsted – now having delivered more than 1200 sensors and associated data acquisition systems for Ørsted foundations – has made the difference to be selected for this significant task says MetriCorr CEO Lars Vendelbo Nielsen.
We are indeed looking forward to work seamlessly together with NGI and to provide the best in class monitoring systems for Ørsted’s asset integrity management.
