Harshlab materials and components offshore laboratory is now approaching to its first anniversary out in the sea. Along with TECNALIA Offshore Renewable Energy, we organized a workshop in Armintza with some leading offshore companies, who shared their experience and how an infrastructure as HarshLab can contribute to solve challenges related to corrosion and fouling. We ended with a cocktail and a visit to the lab at BiMEP Biscay Marine Energy Platform. Thanks to all the participants and we are looking forward see you again in the future!
