The primary focus of Corrosion Management expertise is the exploitation of advanced corrosion data acquisition and evaluation to lever a change in the way corrodible assets are operated and managed. The impact of corrosion on the operating and maintenance costs of industries such as power generation, oil and gas production, water distribution, transportation and infrastructure management is known to be high. Recent research in North America revealed corrosion is responsible for more than 55% of unscheduled downtime in the major process industries, equivalent, for example, to 10% on the cost of the electricity bill for every consumer.
Similar studies in the oil production, refining and petrochemical processing industries showed that the cost of corrosion is equivalent to approximately 5% of the net asset value of major international operators. Corrosion has been recognised to be the number one life limiting asset degradation mechanism, and major research investigations have been launched recently in North America and in Europe to identify, isolate and control corrosion related damage.
Corrosion is an electrochemical phenomenon that characterises the dissolution of metallic construction materials by aggressive service environments. However, the onset of corrosion marks the transition between equipment that is not at risk of degradation, to a condition where damage will definitely occur and which eventually will cause the asset to be taken out of service for repair and/or refurbishment. This means that corrosion itself can be used as the marker to alert operations and maintenance personnel that the risk of damage has increased, prompting remedial measures and providing a means by which the effectiveness of such measures can be evident immediately.
Although corrosion control traditionally was an off-line activity, the introduction of digital instrumentation and web-based data collection systems have provided the functionality required to detect and evaluate the spontaneous self-generated transients associated with the onset or propagation of corrosion. Where appropriate, modern corrosion management and remote surveillance technologies permit maintenance activities to be more closely focussed and optimised, thereby increasing productivity, enhancing safety, and reducing operating costs.
Corrosion Management provides innovative technology-based solutions, normally utilising advanced expertise in combination with the very latest developments in the field of corrosion control technology. The company is providing high-level corrosion expertise to on-going projects in the following countries:
