Prevailing wind: Dörken’s Corrosion Protection

For years now, wind energy has been the poster child for sustainable energy generation. Now Eastern Europe is catching up: in Romania the largest onshore wind park in Europe is currently taking shape. The plant installed there incorporates fastening elements coated with micro-layer corrosion protection systems.

In the world of politics, the energy transition is a resolved issue. However, complete implementation of the ambitious targets set is still a long way off. Offshore wind energy plants will play a major role in this - and it is precisely here that high-performance corrosion protection systems are required. The coated fasteners installed here are amongst the most safety-relevant components of a wind energy unit. As a consequence, they need to be as maintenance-free as possible in order to achieve maximum possible energy efficiency. The fastener elements in the plants of well-known manufacturers therefore frequently utilise a system structure comprising the basecoat and the topcoat Delta®-Tone Delta®-Seal of Dörken MKS-Systeme GmbH & Co. KG, Herdecke.
