The renewable energy sector is growing fast. Wind turbines are often subjected to severe environments. On offshore wind farms the turbines have to cope with choppy seas and windy conditions as well as the salt water which is highly corrosive.
It is inevitable that when the plant is constructed seawater will end up in the turbine tower. Leaks need to be detected as they can lead to a higher rate of corrosion if the water level isn’t monitored constantly.
