Final Report - OPCOM (Development of Ultrasonic Guided Wave Inspection Technology for the Condition Monitoring of Offshore Structures)

Project ID: 516993
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report of the OPCOM project. The main objective of the project was to design and build a prototype system, using Ultrasonic Guided Wave (UGW) Technology to continuously monitor the integrity of offshore structures such as oil production platforms and wind turbine towers.

The report summarises the main project objectives, the project partners as well as the achieved results. It goes on to provide information regarding the work that was performed during the project as well as the offshore trials that were carried out. Information regarding the dissemination of knowledge are also provided.

Finally, the report presents the paper 'Long term monitoring of offshore installations using ultrasonic guided waves' which was given to the 5th International Conference on Condition Monitoring and Machinery Failure Prevention Technologies.
