Celebration of HELIX 2nd General Meeting


HELIX partners have met online for the project’s 2nd General Meeting on January 20th, 2023.

During the meeting, partners have reviewed the project tasks done during the first 6 months and discussed next steps and activities to provide the offshore wind industry with high-strength steel fasteners at a lower cost, more resistant to corrosion and with a wider diameter.

The General Meeting, attended by the project officer, included different sessions focused on the main ongoing topics and work packages of the project that required interaction and discussion across the whole HELIX consortium.

The HELIX project advances the state of the art in coating development and in high strength steels with high toughness and resistance to hydrogen embrittlement. Project results will contribute to better understand the interaction between steel, coating, and service environment in the hydrogen embrittlement phenomenon.
