Managing Corrosion in a Maritime Environment

Tuesday 20 November | Hilton Cairns | 9:00am – 6:00pm

The persistent and destructive force of corrosion is well known. In a marine environment, these forces intensify and so ships, marinas, pipelines, bridges, onshore and offshore structures, desalination plants and other structures in marine environments are all highly susceptible to marine corrosion.

This one-day seminar will look at corrosion mitigation systems and management strategies for marine infrastructure, facilities and vessels and will include topics on protective coatings, cathodic protection, concrete, inspection and more.

Networking Function to follow technical presentations.

Who Should Attend
This seminar will be of high interest to engineers, asset owners, maintenance managers, designers, managers, ship builders, contractors and anyone who has involvement with managing corrosion in marine environments.

The event is proudly supported as a joint ACA & NACE International event.
