Scope of Work
Corrosion protection for 2 column pipes subject to sea-water conditions at ambient temperatures. Coating system used required excellent resistance under aggressive atmospheric conditions.
Internals: Polyglass VEF (Black)
Externals: Plasmet ZF
Polyglass was used for all of the external components due to its superb performance properties in immersed environments. Polyglass VEF boast excellent resistant to solvents, acids and de-mineralised water, as well as exceptional flexibility undercutting resistance and sliding abrasion resistance, making it an ideal coating system for the job. As part of this contract, 2 stoplog gates and 53 brackets were also repaired and protected from future corrosion. As a result of the work carried out to protect the components from future corrosion, the service life of the equipment is expected to be extended by many years.
