Offshore oil platforms, wind power facilities, aquaculture facilities and other facilities are exposed to harsh environments such as seawater, salt spray and humidity, and are highly vulnerable to corrosion threats, resulting in great risks. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out the detection of corrosion conditions in offshore engineering facilities. Through the comprehensive detection of various corrosion, risk points can be found, risks can be prevented, and accurate protection can be carried out. This is a very effective means for the health management of marine platforms. This paper summarizes the new corrosion detection technologies of offshore engineering facilities, including Alternating current field measurement (ACFM), electric field characteristic detection method, ultrasonic method, etc. This paper also looks forward to the development of corrosion detection technology. By obtaining comprehensive and accurate corrosion test results, we can conduct safety assessments of offshore engineering facilities in order to better adjust and optimize corrosion protection measures and ultimately ensure production safety.
