3:30 PM Future-Proofing Structures: Fighting Corrosion in Marine Structures Through Effective Repairs and Protection

The risk of corrosion in marine structures is subject to multiple factors, in particular the exposure zones of structures when they are below the seabed or in permanently submerged zones. New innovations have assisted ports in maintaining and preventing the erosion of these structures, however continuous repairs and protection is needed for long term planning.

With a number of advances in the investigation and technology for deteriorating structures, combining these into a clearly defined plan of action will be key to diagnosing priority repairs and investment, but how do you keep the costs down and save resources in this area?

What the workshop will cover:
  • Understanding the risk of concrete deterioration and erosion
  • Technology and materials that set structures up for the long haul
  • Succeeding in implementation stages for new additions to existing structures
  • Minimising destructive monitoring techniques through lower impact preventative measures

1:50 PM Leveraging the Impact of Design to Improve the Performance of Protective Coatings And Asset Durability

Asset owners continually find themselves exposed to durability risks that are a direct consequence of undesirable design detail. This session will look at common design deficiencies that present risks to the performance of protective coatings applied to complex steel structures, the consequences that this has for operations and maintenance of affected structures, why these performance risks exist and seem to persist and what can be done to reduce them:

  • Overcoming steel structure design features that contribute to diminished performance of modern protective coating systems
  • Minimising maintenance risks to lower the susceptibility of more frequent and costly deterioration, repair, and painting cycles
  • Role of the Asset Owner at design brief and durability risk review stages to ensure a successful business case aligns with clear performance requirements
