Van Oord Installs Slip Joint Foundation at Borssele Wind Farm Site

therefore opens up the possibility of manufacturing larger foundations for the next generation of wind turbines with existing manufacturing facilities and installing them at deep-sea locations using existing vessels."The (conical) sections that make the connection are produced using standard manufacturing methods. The Slip Joint provides a rapid, simple and safe installation solution in combination with reduced maintenance for the duration of the project."

Makai Expands Marine Corrosion Lab

of Hawaii’s Hawaii Corrosion Laboratory. The original focus of the MCL was developing marine heat exchangers. Under a contract with the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, corrosion engineers at the lab were tasked with identifying novel alloys and manufacturing methods for heat exchangers that would be corrosion-resistant, low-cost, compact and highly efficient. Samples of both ferrous and nonferrous alloys made with various joining and manufacturing methods (brazed joints and friction-stir welded joints) as well as various surface conditions (rolled, machined
