Belgian anti-corrosion coating company Acotec (Aalst, Belgium) has launched Humidur WF22, a special one-layer protection coating for the wind farm industry. Based on Acotecs proven and sustainable all-weather offshore coatings technology, Humidur WF22 delivers durable protection against aggressive humidity and seawater exposure. It shields the steel from ultraviolet radiation and light reflections from the weather and sea, along with protecting the transition piece that is subject to splashes on the high tide zone where the structure endures mechanical impacts and waves. Acotec already has extensive experience protecting offshore oil and gas platforms, says Gary Hill, Acotec global business development director. Wind turbines are exposed to similar conditions over a long period of time, and yet do not always benefit from human on the spot control, so a durable protection solution is necessary. Humidur WF22 is that solution. The coating is based on Humidur technology that is regularly used in submerged, splash zone, and dial areas, and in atmospheric zones. Due to its durability and maintenance-free composition, it is a cost-effective, user-friendly, one-coat system that reduces application time, labor costs, and waste.
