Project Details


Mussels and other marine fouling settle on the part of offshore wind turbines and production platforms that is under water.
The fouling aggravates the load from the waves and reduces the load-bearing capacity of the structure by 25-65 percent. Today, the fouling is removed manually - typically with the help of manually controlled subsea robots - which is a time-consuming and economically cumbersome process. This project aim to investigate the key issues related to automation of the marine growth removal process.
