M&O signs agreement with leading Dutch supplier of Cathodic Protection (ICCP) systems.
M&O is very excited to announce a new partnership with CORROSION, which aims to supply the offshore wind market with smart and sustainable ICCP systems.
After working successfully together for 8 years supplying the Brazilian maritime industry, M&O and CORROSION are now entering a commercial partnership for the offshore wind market. The partnership will initially be focusing on the offshore wind energy sector in Norway and Brazil.
“M&O is a proven partner for CORROSION in the maritime sector and with this new cooperation CORROSION and M&O will be partners side-by-side in the offshore wind industry. With this new cooperation, we believe that a good foundation has been laid for the future in Norway and Brazil for our relations in offshore wind. Working with professionals who are known locally ensures that we are accessible to everyone, with an open attitude and able to offer sustainable solutions to the market “, says Niels Ros, Sales Manager at CORROSION.
The energy transition towards renewables.
Offshore wind power is considered one of the most modern renewable energy technologies and using a source that is unlimited and easy to access, makes wind power a sustainable part of the energy mix for the future.
“This partnership is very important for M&O Partners and is aligned with our goal to continue strengthen our portfolio of suppliers of energy transition solutions. CORROSION is already a brand name within the Offshore Wind segment, and together we will make sure CORROSION will continue to strengthen their position in our target markets”, says Erik Hannisdal Managing Partner at M&O.
While moving at different paces, the energy transition is happening all over the world. As of 2020, offshore wind power has become a significant part of northern Europe power generation. Norway, which traditionally has been focusing on the oil & gas industry, is now turning towards offshore wind with the big oil companies as frontrunners, but also with the participation of many new companies.
The Brazilian offshore wind sector is also developing, and with over 7.000 kilometers of coastline, Brazil has great potential for offshore wind power. Wind energy companies are investing in new offshore wind projects in Brazil, and international energy companies are analyzing the possibility of developing offshore wind farm projects in Brazilian waters.
Sustainable and innovative solutions.
With increased activity in this sector, an increased demand for maintenance and repair solutions also follows. Modern wind turbines and their foundations need maintenance and repair solutions to avoid being damaged by corrosion and fouling. To help solve this problem, M&O has partnered up with CORROSION to offer impressed current cathodic protection systems to the Brazilian and Norwegian offshore wind markets.
Since 2008, CORROSION has been a leader in bringing an innovative ICCP solution to the offshore wind market. With its innovative technology and sustainable, non-polluting systems, Corrosion is supplying 95% of the wind sector.
Using CORROSION’s ICCP system is a sustainable way to achieve durable and efficient protection against corrosion. The anodes will work for more than 25 years and release no harmful material into the environment.
Furthermore, the smart ICCP system brings maintenance and problem-solving directly to the client onshore. The system makes it possible to access corrosion protection performance remotely, which means that you can make adjustments and perform service from your onshore location.
Besides the innovative ICCP systems from CORROSION, M&O works with other international suppliers that offer offshore wind solutions for initial construction and installation, and for inspection, repair and maintenance.
