Greetings Members, New opportunities arise for all of us in our daily lives to make a difference. Personal commitment and responsibility to the environment in which we live and operate should be as automatic as the way in which we tend to the needs of our bodies as thinking, working and creative machines which periodically possess elements of the divine. Reading some of the papers that are to be presented at the upcoming 18th International Corrosion Congress (ICC) is inspirational since details of the thought processes, experimental design and analysis of the resultant data let you journey into the creative space of fellow corrosion professionals. In the past year it has been my privilege to meet some of Australasia’s top minds that are committed to unravelling the mysteries of decay. The topics encompass microbial corrosion and the way in which a vast array of engineering alloys respond to the microenvironment in which they operate. It is the knowledge about how coatings specialists, metallurgists, electrochemists, applicators and surface preparation professionals all team up to solve the problems at hand that means the ACA can provide all the answers. An example of the flexible product delivery was the recent workshop on Microbially Induced Corrosion in Melbourne. Journeying into the microscopic world was a painless process as the vast experiences of Brenda Little from the US Navy combined with Roy Cullimore, the gently spoken Canadian microbiologist of the Titanic bacteria fame, to lead to a wide range of open and frank discussions. The creative responses of Western Australia’s Peter Farinha exploded peoples minds as he journeyed through the curious degradation patterns associated with hyper saline waters in remote mine sites. There was a real tension between those who

Corrosion & Materials

reported on Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC) phenomena, that seems to have reached plague proportions on some of the wharf pile structures around Australia’s coast, and those who required the real answer as to what was the controlling mechanism. This is just one example of how our organisation works across all traditional boundaries and brings together an array of creative minds to reveal the mysteries of corrosion and its decay mechanisms. Without continued research and the application of that data which leads to the development of new coatings, alloys and heat treatments, our material world will continue to degrade at an unacceptable rate. The role of the ACA in providing training workshops, professional development seminars and our annual conference is a vital element in the relentless path of corrosion mitigation. In early September an intriguing exhibition Immerse – Exploring the Deep was opened at the Western Australian Maritime Museum in which the combined roles of the oil and gas exploration companies in partnership with the museum was demonstrated in terms of overcoming quite remarkable challenges of working at great depths off the Western Australian coast. Our industry partners are on their quest to provide a secure and reliable energy supply for our island nation while the museum searches for evidence of our exquisite marine biodiversity. The model of the North Rankin A gas production platform brought the realities of corrosion management home to me as I looked at the structural steel piles, their coatings, cathodic protection, the treatments for the splash zone, the production and accommodation topsides to the final clearing point, the flare tower. I had always wondered why production companies would “waste” chemicals by burning them at a flare tower until I visited a production facility near Karratha. The chemists pointed out that bacterial maturation and chemical digenesis produces varying amounts of highly toxic sulphurous

compounds which are concentrated as the raw condensate is processed. By periodically sparging these materials up the flare stack they can be rendered innocuous and thus be removed from the production stream, rather than be an accumulating problem for storage and unusual corrosion decay processes. This display has broken the mould of normal scholarly discourse as the exhibition is about the way in which people have responded to the corrosion and operational challenges of finding and managing the collection and distribution of the undersea resources. The corrosion patina on a 1928 Ned Kelly styled helmet that was used on the first surveys of the benthic environment in the Great Barrier Reef is a reminder of how effective zinc can be as a sacrificial coating on iron in a marine setting. Communication systems were illustrated and applied to biological as well as chemical surveys of the seabed. The 18th ICC is in a few short weeks when delegates assemble from more than 55 countries to share the richness of their corrosion knowledge and sustainable management processes; the anticipated number of delegates should top 750. In response to information presented to His Excellency the Governor of Western Australia, this unique gathering has been given Vice Regal Patronage and as such it is a hallmark of the maturity of our organisation and the vital role that ACA plays. We look forward with a passionate energy to have the opportunity of presenting to you the best in corrosion, the best in mitigation in the vibrant and culturally diverse city that is Perth. The wonderful nature of Perth and its environs is supported by the fact that the meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government will have been in the same conference venue just a few short weeks before you all arrive. Welcome to Perth and thanks for your continuing commitment. Yours in corrosion, Ian MacLeod

Planning for ACA’s future The ACA’s Operations Committee (Board) recently spent an extended time in Melbourne developing the Association’s strategic plan for the period 2012 to the end of 2014. Senior association staff were also in attendance to work with Board members to develop a greater strategic focus for ACA activities over the next three years. Subject to final acceptance by the Board and Council, the plan realigns management activities into eight strategic areas which are supported by realistic and assessable objectives. Attainment of each of the objectives will be through a planned approach with clearly defined strategies, evaluation and reviews. For the next three years, the ACA’s management approach will focus on: Governance and organisational structure Membership Technical Education & training Events Communication

Advocacy Operational management Governance and organisational structure will be an important area of activity. Extra resources will be applied to review and develop systems to ensure the ACA has governance and decision making systems in place which encourage participation by its members. The constitution will continue to be reviewed to ensure the ACA has a structure which accurately reflects the needs of members and which provides for transparent and accountable activities throughout the association. The incorporation status of the ACA, currently under the Associations Incorporation Act – South Australia, will be reviewed to ensure the jurisdiction and corporate form under which ACA is incorporated are appropriate to the current and known future needs of the association. A greater emphasis will also be placed on providing Branches with clearer guidelines and more resources to assist with the management of local affairs and to improve on service delivery to members at a local level.

Membership numbers are currently lapping at 1500 and we expect that by the end of 2011 that target will be achieved. A target of 2000 by the end of 2014 will be the next major hurdle and when achieved will see ACA’s membership having increased by approximately 100% in seven years. Being a membership based organisation the ACA’s primary responsibility is the satisfaction of its Objects in the interest of its members. Consequential benefits will flow to the wider community as a result of the ACA’s activities. The responsibility for delivering the 2012 to 2014 strategic plan will rest with all members and staff and at all levels of governance of the ACA. Management of the plan will be provided by the Board and Council with the support of all ACA staff. Ian Booth Chief Executive Officer ibooth@corrosion.com.au

Rusting Navy choppers fight to stay in the air Reported by The New Zealand Herald on Sunday 28th August 2011, the New Zealand navy's five helicopters, worth NZ$350 million, are struggling to stay in the air as the Defence Force battles corrosion and a lack of staff to maintain the "orphan" fleet. The article referred to a Ministry of Defence report which says three Kaman SH-2G (NZ) Seasprite antisubmarine helicopters have to be flying at any one time but last October only one could get in the air and earlier this year just two serviceable Seasprites were available. The ministry report says because the need to keep the helicopters flying,

staff, and training deficiencies. It was hard to get staff to go with the helicopters when posted at sea for six to eight months. This unwillingness to serve at sea results in having difficulty retaining people with deep knowledge of the Seasprites.”

the military is constantly deferring operational level maintenance creating a "bow-wave of deferred maintenance". The article reported that engineers were finding corrosion or vibration damage and while cumulative deferral might be considered safe, the report said it was reasonable to assume the "damage will worsen the longer it is left".

The article concluded with Air ViceMarshall Peter Stockwell saying “deferring maintenance was tightly controlled, and airworthiness was reviewed constantly. Deferment was often necessary when the aircraft were on frigates at sea. It is very carefully managed.”

Damage was "being found in areas where such corrosion or damage has not been seen before", the report said. The article quoted the air force saying “the corrosion was probably caused by a lack of awareness by

Corrosion prevention method makes UQ Enterprize competition final A new way to prevent corrosion and odours in our sewerage systems is among the five finalists for The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School Enterprize 2011, the nation's richest business competition. The competition this year attracted a diverse range of entries ranging from medical and scientific breakthroughs, commercialising open-source software solutions, to ways to address contemporary challenges such as alternative fuels and new water treatment processes. The five Enterprize 2011 finalists, selected by an expert panel of judges, will now submit comprehensive business plans to compete for the $100,000 prize. One of the finalist is Cloevis from UniQuest Pty Ltd, which is one of Australia’s leading research commercialisation companies, specialising in global technology transfer and facilitating access for all business sectors to world class university expertise, intellectual property and facilities.

Cloevis is a low cost chemical dosing method for preventing hydrogen sulfide corrosion and odours in sewer systems. The research behind Cloevis was developed at the Advanced Water Management Centre, one of the world’s leading water technology and management research centres. The research team, led by Professor Zhiguo Yuan, has been working with some of Australia’s major water utilities for over 10 years in developing an understanding of sewer corrosion and odours.

and amounts, again substantially lowering operating costs.

Cloevis uses a two part solution; the first is a newly-developed proprietary chemical mix that has been proven in laboratory and field trials to be able to kill the sulfate-reducing bacteria that are the root cause of the hydrogen sulfide corrosion and odour problem. As this chemical mix is able to kill these bacteria, chemical dosing can be performed intermittently, substantially lowering costs. Cloevis also integrates a software tool that is able to model sulfide production and transport in the sewer network which we use to optimise the dosing location

After the Enterprize finalists submit their detailed business plans, they will receive support and coaching through UQ Business School.

Dr Tony Keating of UniQuest said “we are planning on performing a large scale field trial at a major water utility this summer. The technology may also have application in the oil and gas industry, where sulfate-reducing bacteria are also found to cause hydrogen sulfide corrosion. The research team at the Advanced Water Management Centre are currently exploring this”.

They will then have their final chance to impress the judges and showcase their plans to venture capitalists and angel investors at a “Pitch Day” on October 13, when the winner will be chosen.

Inaugural Newcastle Branch YCP award announced The ACA Newcastle Branch is proud to announce the recipient of the inaugural 2011 Newcastle Branch Young Corrosion Professional award. Igor Chaves was chosen based on the pathway travelled and motivation to carry out his corrosion research at the University of Newcastle together with the outstanding way he presented his work in a clear fashion with immense enthusiasm during his interview. The selection process was demanding on the Branch committee which initially began with eight applicants. To ensure all fairness

and transparency was applied, some of the Branch committee members withdrew from the judging panel where a professional relationship with applicants had been established. Applicants came from Australia and New Zealand and the list was culled to four after assessing the applications. This presented a challenge to the committee in the logistics of fairly assessing the final short list.

assessed by video conference to establish a level playing field with each going through an identical interview process. During the interview each applicant discussed how they became involved in the corrosion industry, outlined their recent corrosion work and how this work might impact on the wider community. Given the success and response of running this year’s award the Newcastle Branch is looking forward to inviting applicants in 2012.

It was decided that all the applicants, regardless of location, would be

A double celebration for dipping Nine staff at Perry Metal Protection in Hamilton New Zealand were recently presented with national qualifications by achieving both the National Certificate in Hot Dip Galvanizing (Introductory Skills) Level 2 and a Limited Credit Programme (LCP) in Hot Dip Galvanizing. Extractive Industries Training Organisation (EXITO) is the standard setting body for on-job training in the Hot Dip Galvanizing sector. “Prior to today’s presentation, only two other National Certificates in Hot Dip Galvanizing had been presented. So for nine to be achieved in one go is a great achievement for everyone involved at Perry Metal Protection. It’s also

positive for the Hot Dip Galvanizing industry that they are recognising the achievement, professionalism and value these qualifications bring to their operations and staff” said Peter Fowler, EXITO Industry Manager for Resources. Tu Mahutariki, a recipient, has been working in Hot Dip Galvanizing for years but was blown away to receive a certificate as recognition of his hard work. The qualification means that he can now walk onto any Hot Dip Galvanizing site and be aware of the hazards, and health and safety requirements. “With this qualification I can go anywhere” he said.

part of a suite of qualifications that bring vital skills to the workforce and provide defined career pathways. By achieving this qualification the trainees have demonstrated they have the basic skills to work safely in a Hot Dip Galvanizing environment. The LCP is a smaller group of units designed to be more achievable so that trainees have a short term goal. Qualifications are achieved in the workplace through on-job training which means employees are learning while they are earning.

The qualification has existed since 2005 but is now starting to gain a bit of momentum in the Hot Dip Galvanizing industry in New Zealand.

In 1883, the first international telegraph system using galvanized steel poles was built in the colonies of what was to become Australia 18 years later. After 110 years of service and still fully functional, the poles were decommissioned in 1993. A testament to the durability of the galvanizing process. Compared to any other protective coating for steel, hot dip galvanizing is unmatched in its superior corrosion resistance, strong and tough coating, proven performance, sustainability and lifetime cost benefits.

Corrosion prevention method makes UQ Enterprize competition final A new way to prevent corrosion and odours in our sewerage systems is among the five finalists for The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School Enterprize 2011, the nation's richest business competition. The competition this year attracted a diverse range of entries ranging from medical and scientific breakthroughs, commercialising open-source software solutions, to ways to address contemporary challenges such as alternative fuels and new water treatment processes. The five Enterprize 2011 finalists, selected by an expert panel of judges, will now submit comprehensive business plans to compete for the $100,000 prize. One of the finalist is Cloevis from UniQuest Pty Ltd, which is one of Australia’s leading research commercialisation companies, specialising in global technology transfer and facilitating access for all business sectors to world class university expertise, intellectual property and facilities.

Cloevis is a low cost chemical dosing method for preventing hydrogen sulfide corrosion and odours in sewer systems. The research behind Cloevis was developed at the Advanced Water Management Centre, one of the world’s leading water technology and management research centres. The research team, led by Professor Zhiguo Yuan, has been working with some of Australia’s major water utilities for over 10 years in developing an understanding of sewer corrosion and odours.

and amounts, again substantially lowering operating costs.

Cloevis uses a two part solution; the first is a newly-developed proprietary chemical mix that has been proven in laboratory and field trials to be able to kill the sulfate-reducing bacteria that are the root cause of the hydrogen sulfide corrosion and odour problem. As this chemical mix is able to kill these bacteria, chemical dosing can be performed intermittently, substantially lowering costs. Cloevis also integrates a software tool that is able to model sulfide production and transport in the sewer network which we use to optimise the dosing location

After the Enterprize finalists submit their detailed business plans, they will receive support and coaching through UQ Business School.

Dr Tony Keating of UniQuest said “we are planning on performing a large scale field trial at a major water utility this summer. The technology may also have application in the oil and gas industry, where sulfate-reducing bacteria are also found to cause hydrogen sulfide corrosion. The research team at the Advanced Water Management Centre are currently exploring this”.

They will then have their final chance to impress the judges and showcase their plans to venture capitalists and angel investors at a “Pitch Day” on October 13, when the winner will be chosen.

Inaugural Newcastle Branch YCP award announced The ACA Newcastle Branch is proud to announce the recipient of the inaugural 2011 Newcastle Branch Young Corrosion Professional award. Igor Chaves was chosen based on the pathway travelled and motivation to carry out his corrosion research at the University of Newcastle together with the outstanding way he presented his work in a clear fashion with immense enthusiasm during his interview.

Rusting Navy choppers fight to stay in the air Reported by The New Zealand Herald on Sunday 28th August 2011, the New Zealand navy's five helicopters, worth NZ$350 million, are struggling to stay in the air as the Defence Force battles corrosion and a lack of staff to maintain the "orphan" fleet. The article referred to a Ministry of Defence report which says three Kaman SH-2G (NZ) Seasprite antisubmarine helicopters have to be flying at any one time but last October only one could get in the air and earlier this year just two serviceable Seasprites were available. The ministry report says because the need to keep the helicopters flying,

the military is constantly deferring operational level maintenance creating a "bow-wave of deferred maintenance". The article reported that engineers were finding corrosion or vibration damage and while cumulative deferral might be considered safe, the report said it was reasonable to assume the "damage will worsen the longer it is left".

The article concluded with Air ViceMarshall Peter Stockwell saying “deferring maintenance was tightly controlled, and airworthiness was reviewed constantly. Deferment was often necessary when the aircraft were on frigates at sea. It is very carefully managed.”

Damage was "being found in areas where such corrosion or damage has not been seen before", the report said. The article quoted the air force saying “the corrosion was probably caused by a lack of awareness by

South Australia Branch

ACA Auckland Division

South Australian Student Night

Young Corrosion Professionals Meeting Report

On the 25th of August, the South Australian ACA Branch held the second Student Night for the year at The British Hotel. The evening was aimed at tertiary students, to introduce them to the ACA and to provide a networking session with various industry representatives. The night was successful, with seven new student members signing up on the night, and ten older members coming along for discussions. Most of the students were final year Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering students from The University of Adelaide.

The ACA Auckland Division Meeting held on 25th August at the old Drake Hotel in Freemans Bay, was the 3rd Annual Young Corrosion Professional (YCP) event. The YCP evening has now become a regular feature of the ACA Auckland meeting program and this year’s event was of the usual high standard. The YCP evening was jointly sponsored by ACA and Les Boulton & Associates Ltd.

Kingsley Brown gave an introduction to the ACA, after which Alex Shepherd gave a presentation highlighting the issues facing young corrosion professionals in the international stage. All students greatly enjoyed the presentations and gave positive feedback. The common feedback given was that they now appreciated how important and how large the corrosion industry is on a worldwide scale. These student nights have been quite successful in South Australia, helping promote not only the ACA to future engineers, but also forming useful industry contacts.

Following refreshments, the presenter for the YCP evening this year was Sean Ryder of GHD, who addressed the meeting on the insand-outs of Cathodic Protection (CP). Sean noted that CP is no longer regarded as a “black art” by infrastructure constructors and it is an essential tool in the armoury of design engineers against corrosion. Sean described a number of recent infrastructure projects involving

installation of CP in Auckland and Australia, including the RNZ Navy’s recently refurbished Calliope Wharf in Devonport. ACA Auckland Chairman Michael Williams then thanked Sean for his presentation and he also thanked the attendees who made the effort to come along to the 3rd annual YCP evening.

Demonstration Night On Thursday 28th July, the ACA South Australia Branch held a tape wrapping and coating application demonstration night. This was hosted by David Towns from Denso who demonstrated what the correct method and procedures were for applying heat shrink sleeves, tape wrapping and liquid coating application methods to piping to 20 ACA members. The group watched a video on the surface preparation and application methods of the product and were then provided the rare ‘hands on’ opportunity to rollup their sleeves

Dr. Cullimore is most renowned for his work relating to the RMS Titanic and its deterioration due to MIC. The Bismark and the Britannic are other infamous wrecks he has been involved with. He is the founder and president of the Canadian company, Droycon Bioconcepts, and is a former lecturer at the University

In between these engagements, Dr Cullimore was given a tour of several corrosion research sites managed by staff at the University of Newcastle. A particular highlight for Dr. Cullimore was a visit to the old lighthouse at Nelson Bay, where he expressed his desire to sit down and paint the magnificent scenery before him!

Dr. Cullimore visited Newcastle and addressed a jointly-sponsored function by the ACA Newcastle Branch and Engineers Australia. He also conducted a presentation at the University of Newcastle.

In a final gesture to celebrate his visit, the ACA Newcastle Branch arranged a special dining event for their members and Dr. Cullimore. This took place at Restaurant Deux, with a 6-course degustation menu and matched wines. Needless to say, the event was a huge success and the food spectacular. Dr. Cullimore was impressed and vowed to treat his staff to such an event when his company turned over a healthy profit, but until that time, he said fast-food fare would have to suffice. We would like to thank Dr. Cullimore for his visit and wish him all the best in his own research endeavours.

ACA Symposium Report Symposium on Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion The ACA recently facilitated a two day event entitled Symposium on Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion. The symposium was held in Melbourne at the Melbourne Marriot Hotel on 10th – 11th August 2011. The international line-up of ten speakers attracted forty seven delegates from across Australia and New Zealand. Below is a synopsis of each of the presentations. If ACA members would like an electronic copy of a particular presentation or to purchase either a copy of notes of the proceedings or a DVD of the peer reviewed full papers, please contact Katherine Webber at kwebber@corrosion.com.au Diagnosing, Measuring and Monitoring Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) Brenda Little, Naval Research Laboratory, USA Many techniques have been described for diagnosing, measuring and monitoring microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), however none has been accepted as an industry standard. Diagnosing MIC requires a combination of microbiological, metallurgical and chemical analyses. Electrochemical techniques can be used to measure and monitor MIC. The major limitation for MIC monitoring programs is the inability to relate microbiology to corrosion in real time. Some techniques can detect a specific modification in the system

due to the presence and activities of microorganisms (e.g., heat transfer resistance, fluid friction resistance, galvanic current) and assume something about the corrosion. Other techniques measure some electrochemical parameter (e.g., polarization resistance, electrochemical noise) and assume something about the microbiology. With experience and knowledge of a particular operating system either can be an effective monitoring tool, especially for evaluating a treatment regime (biocides or corrosion inhibitors). Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion: Causative Organisms and Mechanisms Brenda Little, Naval Research Laboratory, USA The relationship between microorganisms and corrosion is both predictable and complex. In aquatic environments and under some atmospheric conditions, microorganisms settle on surfaces and alter the surface chemistry controlling the rates of corrosion or shifting the mechanism for corrosion. The result is corrosion where none could be anticipated based on the composition of the bulk medium, e.g., low-chloride waters, and rates that are exceptionally fast. Under some circumstances microorganisms can also inhibit corrosion. The influence of microorganisms on corrosion depends, not only on the presence

and activities of the microorganisms, but also the nature of the metal/ alloy and the specific environment in which the organisms are growing, e.g., aerobic vs. anaerobic, ratio of aggressive anions to non-aggressive anions and nutrients. The Role of Nutrients and Water Pollution in the Bacterial Corrosion of Structural Steels Rob Melchers, The University of Newcastle, Australia This paper provides an overview of recent applied research on the effect of low level water pollution and in particular nutrient levels on the development of corrosion loss and maximum pit depth with increased exposure time. Such corrosion involves electro-chemical corrosion mechanisms but also microbial activity. The latter is very sensitive to nutrient levels such as caused by water pollution. In seawater nitrate often is the critical limiting nutrient since other potentially critical nutrients such a carbon and sulfates usually are readily available in natural seawaters. The corrosion process itself provides the necessary iron. For fresh waters nitrates tend to be available and typically sulfate is the limiting nutrient. These general observations are used to interpret data for a number of practical cases including accelerated low water corrosion (ALWC). Some degree of quantification of the effect of nutrient levels on corrosion and pitting has

been possible using interpreted field observations. Detailed relationships remain to be developed for engineering and other applications. Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Copper and Galvanised Steel Pipe Howard Fallowfield, Flinders University, Australia Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a mechanism increasingly being implicated in the corrosion of metals. Biofilms were detected in both copper and galvanised steel pipe, and organisms which enhance corrosion or protect metal from corrosion were isolated. Representatives of 16 genera of microorganisms were isolated and were shown to be resistant to copper, zinc and chlorine. The resistance to copper may be mediated by the enhanced production of exopolysaccharide capable of protecting the viable cells from metal exposure. The involvement of exopolysaccharides in MIC is diverse and complex. Exopolysaccharides were shown to adsorb copper, which may reduce human exposure to copper in corroding systems, however, exopolysaccharide was also positively associated with copper release by Acidovorax delafieldii. The relationship between biofilms, MIC and water quality is also complex and probably species specific. Water usage patterns, reflected by stagnation and turbulence, and the nature of copper pipe manufacture all influence MIC and add further complexity to prediction of the

outcome. The interaction between water chemistry and usage patterns may not only affect biofilm biomass but may reasonably be expected to affect the microbial ecology and the outcome of microbial competition. This is important since the order in which surfaces were colonised by either aggressive or protective bacteria influenced the outcome with regard to MIC. Continued multidisciplinary research will be required to adequately understand the complex microbiological, physical, biochemical and electrochemical interactions and to enable the implementation of sustainable management practices for MIC. The Anaerobic Domain of Marine Immersion Corrosion Rob Jeffrey, The University of Newcastle, Australia The precise role of bacteria and microbiological agents and consortia in immersion corrosion has been the subject of much interest particularly when anaerobic bacteria control the corrosion process. There are laboratory based experimental findings and images verifying the presence of such consortia but there are few images of the interaction between bacteria and corrosion processes in the literature. This paper considers the marine immersion corrosion of steel and presents images of the metamorphosis of the iron in the steel to iron hydroxide and to iron-sulphur compounds and the apparent interaction with bacteria. Some images are of bacteria cultured in clean and stagnant seawater. All

of the iron-compound related images are from steel samples immersed in actual seawater conditions during field trials. The images were obtained using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Analysis of the corroding material compounds was by energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). By analysing the corroding material compounds and relating the images to known iron compound species morphologies, it is possible to make interpretations about the role of bacteria, particularly in the transformation to iron-sulphur compounds. Investigations of Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) of Submerged Steel and Wooden Ship Wrecks and the Role that Bio-Concretions Play in These Degenerative Processes Roy Cullimore, Droycon Bioconcepts, Canada Traditionally microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) processes have been linked to the activities of sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB). Corrosion can be initiated when hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas comes into contact with the surfaces of steels. From studies made primarily of mild steels but including concretes and woods, a pattern of microbiological activity has been observed that commonly occurs when corrosion risks are significant. These include the physical and chemical nature of the surface to which a biomass attaches and grows; the nature of the environment at the surface interface; the form of

biomass growth; the interactive nature of the biomass within the matrix; and the final states of stabilization or destruction of the matrix and associated biomass. Critical to the MIC corrosive process is the form and function of the associated attached active biomass interacting with the surfaces of the potentially vulnerable matrix. Three investigative stages are described to allow investigation of the role that biomass plays in the development and functioning of corrosion. MIC processes have been observed using this three phased investigative approach and examples of investigations conducted are described including the corrosion of steels on the RMS Titanic associable with bio-concretions (rusticles); ochrous biofilm formation on steel coupons under laboratory and field conditions; above mud-line bio-preservation of wooden hulled vessels sunk in the nineteenth century; plugging and corrosion of fire sprinkler systems; and the impact of MIC on concretes.

to availability and safety of plant and equipment and has been extensively studied since its identification around 1910. MIC is an important materials degradation issue in food processing, power generation, water and waste water treatment, shipping and marine structures, pulp and paper, oil and gas, and other industries. Wherever water is used in industry the aqueous phase can become contaminated with micro-organisms and can provide an environment that supports biofilm formation on metal surfaces. Some strains of micro-organisms that exist in the biofilms can initiate and propagate biodeterioration of engineering materials such as steel, galvanised steel, stainless steels, copper and copper alloys. The financial and operational consequences of MIC becoming established in industrial water handling systems are significant. The paper describes a selection of recent case studies involving corrosion of engineering materials due to MIC. The identification and mitigation of MIC on engineering materials is outlined.

Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion– Case Studies Les Boulton, Les Boulton & Associates, New Zealand

Steel Pile MIC Management in Newcastle Port Warren Green, Vinsi Partners, Australia

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a form of biodeterioration of materials that has been widely encountered in many industries for decades. Microbial corrosion has been recognised as a serious threat

Newcastle Port Corporation (NPC) has a number of steel piled wharf, berth and jetty structures in Newcastle Harbour, NSW. The types of steel piles include tubular, H-section and sheet. In the past the

rate of corrosion of steel piles in Newcastle Harbour has been so low that corrosion protection methods have not always been necessary. About 4 years ago NPC maintenance staff observed “bright-orange” localised corrosion of steel piles around the low water level, within the lower half of the tidal zone and in some instances extending to inwater sections. The “bright orange” build-up at or near low tide is of the characteristic appearance of accelerated low water corrosion or ALWC. The “bright orange” localised corrosion evident to the below water pile sections is assumed to be microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). The ALWC and MIC has lead to perforations of some piles. This paper outlines the findings of inspections and diver surveys of piles, the extent of occurrence of ALWC and MIC and details the remediation strategies that are being adopted to manage MIC on NPC steel piled wharf, berth and jetty structures. Structural pile repairs have been necessary to one berth structure due to MIC and details of the rectification works required are provided. Prior to the onset of MIC, the steel piles of one NPC wharf structure were wrapped with a petrolatum-based system. The performance of this system against MIC is raised. The protective performance of cathodic protection (impressed current and galvanic) against MIC on other steel piled structures in Newcastle Harbour is also discussed.

Biocorrosion in the Mining Industry ... Big Tanks and Big Pipes Peter Farinha, Extrin Consultants, Australia In Australia, particularly the mining states of Queensland and Western Australia, the production of mineral resources is a significant contributor to the state's Gross Domestic Product. The production of aluminium, coal, copper, gold, iron ore, nickel, alumina and other metallic ores are all subject to corrosion processes. Some processes, such as the production of titanium dioxide, are really corrosion processes in a controlled environment. Nevertheless, the harsh and aggressive operational conditions can also enhance corrosion and the use of hyper saline bore water in the Eastern goldfields in Western Australia is a prime example of a naturally inoculated microbially mixed environment. A selection of case studies are presented for carbon steel, galvanised steel, a high chromium iron alloy (3CR12) and rubber, where microbial activity was the prime deterioration mechanism. Some case studies are included to show that bacteria are implicated in many corrosion failures of critical mine site assets including tankage (the perforation of Carbon in Leach tanks in the gold industry), the deterioration of large rubber lined process equipment, the deterioration of process cooling towers and the premature failure of stainless steel Reverse Osmosis water lines. This paper comments on some of the mechanisms of MIC, the predominant causative organisms, the diversity of susceptible materials observed and the likely consequences to production.

corrosion (MIC). This paper will broadly review the internal and external environments for ships and submarines and provide several case histories of MIC in maritime vessels, both merchant marine and naval. The main focus will be consideration of the various complementary approaches required to unequivocally diagnose the presence of MIC, possibly in the presence of alternative corrosion mechanisms, and then to categorise and quantify the microbiological species present. Particular consideration is given to diagnosis that is applicable to field testing, as well as techniques that are more suitable for confirmatory laboratory based testing. Quick but accurate diagnosis is essential on maritime vessels and in shipyards where maintenance activity must be tightly scheduled and controlled, to control costs and to maximise availability. The paper also considers developments in MIC sensors, for monitoring vulnerable regions of maritime vessels, and providing early warning of the risk or onset of MIC so that preventative maintenance activity can be better scheduled. This is part of an industry move towards Condition Based Maintenance, and is equally applicable to minimising the effects of MIC on shore-based infrastructure. Finally, a brief survey of possible mitigation techniques to reduce the propensity or severity of MIC is discussed. Overall the paper considers the diagnosis, measuring and monitoring of MIC in maritime vessels from a pragmatic, operator-based viewpoint, allowing future integration with mitigation strategies that are aimed to minimise the impact on through-life costs of maintenance and repair, while maximising operator availability.

processes leave behind. This type of scientific study, otherwise known as metabolomics, is proposed as a tool for the management of water supply networks. The metabolites from a range of physico-biochemical reactions which occur within pipe biofilms are utilised in order to characterise a series of chemical compounds that are associated with microorganisms that are believed to cause microbial influenced corrosion (MIC). This research was undertaken in order to determine if the metabolomic approach may be an improved way of understanding internal corrosion in water supply networks.

biomass growth; the interactive nature of the biomass within the matrix; and the final states of stabilization or destruction of the matrix and associated biomass. Critical to the MIC corrosive process is the form and function of the associated attached active biomass interacting with the surfaces of the potentially vulnerable matrix. Three investigative stages are described to allow investigation of the role that biomass plays in the development and functioning of corrosion. MIC processes have been observed using this three phased investigative approach and examples of investigations conducted are described including the corrosion of steels on the RMS Titanic associable with bio-concretions (rusticles); ochrous biofilm formation on steel coupons under laboratory and field conditions; above mud-line bio-preservation of wooden hulled vessels sunk in the nineteenth century; plugging and corrosion of fire sprinkler systems; and the impact of MIC on concretes.

to availability and safety of plant and equipment and has been extensively studied since its identification around 1910. MIC is an important materials degradation issue in food processing, power generation, water and waste water treatment, shipping and marine structures, pulp and paper, oil and gas, and other industries. Wherever water is used in industry the aqueous phase can become contaminated with micro-organisms and can provide an environment that supports biofilm formation on metal surfaces. Some strains of micro-organisms that exist in the biofilms can initiate and propagate biodeterioration of engineering materials such as steel, galvanised steel, stainless steels, copper and copper alloys. The financial and operational consequences of MIC becoming established in industrial water handling systems are significant. The paper describes a selection of recent case studies involving corrosion of engineering materials due to MIC. The identification and mitigation of MIC on engineering materials is outlined.

Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion– Case Studies Les Boulton, Les Boulton & Associates, New Zealand

Steel Pile MIC Management in Newcastle Port Warren Green, Vinsi Partners, Australia

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a form of biodeterioration of materials that has been widely encountered in many industries for decades. Microbial corrosion has been recognised as a serious threat

Newcastle Port Corporation (NPC) has a number of steel piled wharf, berth and jetty structures in Newcastle Harbour, NSW. The types of steel piles include tubular, H-section and sheet. In the past the

rate of corrosion of steel piles in Newcastle Harbour has been so low that corrosion protection methods have not always been necessary. About 4 years ago NPC maintenance staff observed “bright-orange” localised corrosion of steel piles around the low water level, within the lower half of the tidal zone and in some instances extending to inwater sections. The “bright orange” build-up at or near low tide is of the characteristic appearance of accelerated low water corrosion or ALWC. The “bright orange” localised corrosion evident to the below water pile sections is assumed to be microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC). The ALWC and MIC has lead to perforations of some piles. This paper outlines the findings of inspections and diver surveys of piles, the extent of occurrence of ALWC and MIC and details the remediation strategies that are being adopted to manage MIC on NPC steel piled wharf, berth and jetty structures. Structural pile repairs have been necessary to one berth structure due to MIC and details of the rectification works required are provided. Prior to the onset of MIC, the steel piles of one NPC wharf structure were wrapped with a petrolatum-based system. The performance of this system against MIC is raised. The protective performance of cathodic protection (impressed current and galvanic) against MIC on other steel piled structures in Newcastle Harbour is also discussed.

Biocorrosion in the Mining Industry ... Big Tanks and Big Pipes Peter Farinha, Extrin Consultants, Australia In Australia, particularly the mining states of Queensland and Western Australia, the production of mineral resources is a significant contributor to the state's Gross Domestic Product. The production of aluminium, coal, copper, gold, iron ore, nickel, alumina and other metallic ores are all subject to corrosion processes. Some processes, such as the production of titanium dioxide, are really corrosion processes in a controlled environment. Nevertheless, the harsh and aggressive operational conditions can also enhance corrosion and the use of hyper saline bore water in the Eastern goldfields in Western Australia is a prime example of a naturally inoculated microbially mixed environment. A selection of case studies are presented for carbon steel, galvanised steel, a high chromium iron alloy (3CR12) and rubber, where microbial activity was the prime deterioration mechanism. Some case studies are included to show that bacteria are implicated in many corrosion failures of critical mine site assets including tankage (the perforation of Carbon in Leach tanks in the gold industry), the deterioration of large rubber lined process equipment, the deterioration of process cooling towers and the premature failure of stainless steel Reverse Osmosis water lines. This paper comments on some of the mechanisms of MIC, the predominant causative organisms, the diversity of susceptible materials observed and the likely consequences to production.

corrosion (MIC). This paper will broadly review the internal and external environments for ships and submarines and provide several case histories of MIC in maritime vessels, both merchant marine and naval. The main focus will be consideration of the various complementary approaches required to unequivocally diagnose the presence of MIC, possibly in the presence of alternative corrosion mechanisms, and then to categorise and quantify the microbiological species present. Particular consideration is given to diagnosis that is applicable to field testing, as well as techniques that are more suitable for confirmatory laboratory based testing. Quick but accurate diagnosis is essential on maritime vessels and in shipyards where maintenance activity must be tightly scheduled and controlled, to control costs and to maximise availability. The paper also considers developments in MIC sensors, for monitoring vulnerable regions of maritime vessels, and providing early warning of the risk or onset of MIC so that preventative maintenance activity can be better scheduled. This is part of an industry move towards Condition Based Maintenance, and is equally applicable to minimising the effects of MIC on shore-based infrastructure. Finally, a brief survey of possible mitigation techniques to reduce the propensity or severity of MIC is discussed. Overall the paper considers the diagnosis, measuring and monitoring of MIC in maritime vessels from a pragmatic, operator-based viewpoint, allowing future integration with mitigation strategies that are aimed to minimise the impact on through-life costs of maintenance and repair, while maximising operator availability.

processes leave behind. This type of scientific study, otherwise known as metabolomics, is proposed as a tool for the management of water supply networks. The metabolites from a range of physico-biochemical reactions which occur within pipe biofilms are utilised in order to characterise a series of chemical compounds that are associated with microorganisms that are believed to cause microbial influenced corrosion (MIC). This research was undertaken in order to determine if the metabolomic approach may be an improved way of understanding internal corrosion in water supply networks. This concept is demonstrated experimentally by subjecting household copper pipes to bacteria believed to cause MIC in a controlled study. The metabolites which resulted from the microbial corrosion activity were extracted from the body of water, separated and identified using conventional analytical chemistry techniques. It was found by using chemometric analytical data methods that the samples could be differentiated by the metabolites that they excrete and the substrates that they consume, and hence the presence of organisms which are believed to influence corrosion could be inferred.

University Profile Corrosion Research at Curtin University of Technology The Corrosion Centre for Education Research and Technology (CorrCERT) has been conducting high quality research and providing expert consultancy services to oil and gas industry for the past 20 years. The Centre’s services are diverse and catch the attention of many local and foreign companies. It is well known that industry will focus on practical problems and continue to encourage top quality researchers to find the optimal solutions. With this broader perspective in mind, Corr – CERT has jointly developed industrial projects in collaboration with some of the leading companies like Chevron Australia Pty Ltd and Woodside Energy Ltd under the banner of the Western Australian Energy Research Alliance (WA:ERA). The Centre’s research laboratory is well equipped with modern equipment facilities and is dedicated to maintain a high standard of customer service. The laboratory conducts testing as per ASTM, ISO, Australian and NACE standards and also looking forward to achieving NATA accreditation in the near future. At present, the CorrCERT is located within the Resources and Chemistry Precinct and the Department of Chemistry. The Centre is also active in corrosion education. The newly launched Graduate Certificate in Corrosion Engineering is the first in a series

of post-graduate courses Curtin University will offer to meet growing industry demand for qualified corrosion engineers and quality research in this field. The online Graduate Certificate in Corrosion Engineering program is tailored to industry needs – specifically the energy and resource industries – and can be undertaken while working as there are no requirements to attend classes at the university. It is available to Australian and internationally based students and is the only one of its kind in the southern hemisphere. The Centre has close ties with leading corrosion associations. For example, we are member of the ACA Technical Group Steering Committee: petroleum & chemical process industries, and are proud to be corporate members of the ACA and NACE International.

corrosion. Some major thrust areas of research are as follows: Corrosion Inhibitor Research The Corr-CERT has developed special expertise to validate specific Corrosion Inhibitor (CI) test procedures and protocols and also performs standard analytical tests for investigating and evaluating their performance, not only for the oil and gas industry, but also for cooling systems (automotive and industrial). Top-of the-line Corrosion (TOL) This is one of the critical obstacles associated during the transportation of wet gas. TOL corrosion occurs when the water vapour within the gas mixture gets condensed on the upper portion of the internal pipe wall. This problem can’t be treated by conventional methods like continuous injecting of corrosion inhibitors at regular intervals. To reduce the intensity of this problem, the CorrCERT has tried to develop a reliable method to simulate TOL corrosion in the laboratory. Initial test methods are used to develop corrosion inhibitors ability to provide protection via batch treatment or through the action of volatile compounds. Under Deposit Corrosion The oil and gas industry is often faced with under deposit corrosion when solid particles get

accumulated in the pipeline and result in severe localised corrosion. At present, the Corr-CERT is conducting research to understand the mechanism of under deposit corrosion. Once completed, this study will be very useful to oil and gas industry to develop the superior and suitable corrosion inhibitor formulations. Sour Service Research The presence of hydrogen sulphide (H2 S) in oil and gas reserves creates severe problems to control corrosion. Corr-CERT will move at the end of 2011 to a new laboratory that enables the centre to study the unique problems induced by hydrogen sulphide. Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion Corr-CERT has in the recent years developed significant capabilities in studying Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) phenomena in close collaboration with A/Prof Elizabeth Watkin (School of Biomedical Sciences), who has significantly contributed to the advancement of bioleaching of mineral ores processes. Through technology and knowledge transfers, the centre is able to put a new spin on the MIC mechanisms. Furthermore, the centre is working closely together with Dr. Maneesha Ginige and Dr. Anna Kasksonen, both from CSIRO, Land and Water, who contribute with their expertise and equipment to the success of our research programs.

Dehumidification Equipment Selection Refrigeration or Desiccant? As we move into the spring months, your choice of dehumidification equipment changes. While you had needed additional heat in winter, your project may soon need cooling. The performance of the dehumidifier is also greatly impacted by the changing dry bulb and dew point temperature. Where desiccant dehumidifiers were used, we now might consider refrigeration type dehumidifiers.

Refrigeration type dehumidifiers These units are much like the air conditioner at your house. The coil on your air conditioner has a condensate line that is constantly dripping while the unit runs. This is the water that the air conditioner is removing from the air. Industrial refrigeration type dehumidifiers work on the same principle. By lowering the air temperature (dry bulb temperature) to a point that is lower than the dew point temperature, they “squeeze” the water out of the air passing over the coil. The water, with no place to go, condenses on the coils, runs down to the drip pan and out the condensate line. The air leaving the unit is colder, but also drier than what entered. By drier, we mean a lower dew point temperature. The relative humidity is near 100% leaving a refrigeration dehumidifier. This is why in some applications; we actually re-heat the air to lower the relative humidity. It may sound a little ridiculous, but this is how a refrigeration dehumidifier works. You cool the air past the dew point temperature then warm it up again to lower the RH. This is an effective and very valid method, in warm, wet climates. When temperatures cool, however, these units become less effective. If the coils reach temperatures

www.corrosion.com.au

below freezing point, they begin to ice up, restricting air flow. Eventually, they must be defrosted. There have been various advances in this technology to minimise this phenomenon, but there is little that can be done to consistently deliver dew point temperatures much lower than 4 degrees C with refrigeration equipment. Consider a tank coating project where you are trying to preserve the blasted steel. It is commonly agreed that to do this, you need to maintain the dew point temperature at a level at least 8.5 degrees C below the steel surface temperature. If the best your refrigeration type dehumidifier can do is to deliver air at a 4.5 degree C dew point, with limited infiltration, you might be able to maintain a 7 degree dew point in the tank. This would mean that your surface temperature had better remain above 15.5 degrees C at night (8.5 plus 7). So in the real world, we believe refrigeration should only be used when surface temperatures are expected to remain above 18.5 degrees C to ensure the 3 degree C margin can be maintained. Break this rule and you are at serious risk of the blast turning.

In order for the desiccant to begin attracting moisture after it was heated, the material must first cool down. This is why these units work much better in cooler climates or if the air is pre-cooled. There is also significant heat generated in the adsorbing process. The supplemental heat can add to already uncomfortable working conditions in summer or provide more comfortable conditions in winter. Desiccant dehumidifiers will effectively remove large quantities of moisture at all temperatures, but performance is enhanced in lower dry bulb temperatures.

Bottom line As temperatures cool in the autumn months, consider using desiccant dehumidifiers and putting the refrigeration equipment up for the winter. If you are preserving blasted steel, watch your surface temperatures and don’t use refrigeration type equipment when surface temperatures drop below 18.5 degrees C. David Dawson National Sales & Operations Manager Dehumidification Technologies

Desiccant dehumidifiers Using a material like silica gel, (similar to the pouch of desiccant that comes in a new pair of Nikes or camera case) the desiccant dehumidifier causes the moisture to be attracted (adsorbed) to a large silica gel impregnated wheel or rotor in the air stream. This wheel slowly rotates through another chamber where a heated airstream heats up the desiccant causing it to release the moisture back into the atmosphere. The continuous process allows the air stream going into the tank or space to be constantly exposed to the dry desiccant, resulting in a very effective removal of moisture.

Dehumidification Equipment Selection Refrigeration or Desiccant? As we move into the spring months, your choice of dehumidification equipment changes. While you had needed additional heat in winter, your project may soon need cooling. The performance of the dehumidifier is also greatly impacted by the changing dry bulb and dew point temperature. Where desiccant dehumidifiers were used, we now might consider refrigeration type dehumidifiers.

Refrigeration type dehumidifiers These units are much like the air conditioner at your house. The coil on your air conditioner has a condensate line that is constantly dripping while the unit runs. This is the water that the air conditioner is removing from the air. Industrial refrigeration type dehumidifiers work on the same principle. By lowering the air temperature (dry bulb temperature) to a point that is lower than the dew point temperature, they “squeeze” the water out of the air passing over the coil. The water, with no place to go, condenses on the coils, runs down to the drip pan and out the condensate line. The air leaving the unit is colder, but also drier than what entered. By drier, we mean a lower dew point temperature. The relative humidity is near 100% leaving a refrigeration dehumidifier. This is why in some applications; we actually re-heat the air to lower the relative humidity. It may sound a little ridiculous, but this is how a refrigeration dehumidifier works. You cool the air past the dew point temperature then warm it up again to lower the RH. This is an effective and very valid method, in warm, wet climates. When temperatures cool, however, these units become less effective. If the coils reach temperatures

www.corrosion.com.au

below freezing point, they begin to ice up, restricting air flow. Eventually, they must be defrosted. There have been various advances in this technology to minimise this phenomenon, but there is little that can be done to consistently deliver dew point temperatures much lower than 4 degrees C with refrigeration equipment. Consider a tank coating project where you are trying to preserve the blasted steel. It is commonly agreed that to do this, you need to maintain the dew point temperature at a level at least 8.5 degrees C below the steel surface temperature. If the best your refrigeration type dehumidifier can do is to deliver air at a 4.5 degree C dew point, with limited infiltration, you might be able to maintain a 7 degree dew point in the tank. This would mean that your surface temperature had better remain above 15.5 degrees C at night (8.5 plus 7). So in the real world, we believe refrigeration should only be used when surface temperatures are expected to remain above 18.5 degrees C to ensure the 3 degree C margin can be maintained. Break this rule and you are at serious risk of the blast turning.

In order for the desiccant to begin attracting moisture after it was heated, the material must first cool down. This is why these units work much better in cooler climates or if the air is pre-cooled. There is also significant heat generated in the adsorbing process. The supplemental heat can add to already uncomfortable working conditions in summer or provide more comfortable conditions in winter. Desiccant dehumidifiers will effectively remove large quantities of moisture at all temperatures, but performance is enhanced in lower dry bulb temperatures.

Bottom line As temperatures cool in the autumn months, consider using desiccant dehumidifiers and putting the refrigeration equipment up for the winter. If you are preserving blasted steel, watch your surface temperatures and don’t use refrigeration type equipment when surface temperatures drop below 18.5 degrees C. David Dawson National Sales & Operations Manager Dehumidification Technologies

Desiccant dehumidifiers Using a material like silica gel, (similar to the pouch of desiccant that comes in a new pair of Nikes or camera case) the desiccant dehumidifier causes the moisture to be attracted (adsorbed) to a large silica gel impregnated wheel or rotor in the air stream. This wheel slowly rotates through another chamber where a heated airstream heats up the desiccant causing it to release the moisture back into the atmosphere. The continuous process allows the air stream going into the tank or space to be constantly exposed to the dry desiccant, resulting in a very effective removal of moisture.

Offshore cathodic protection anode retrofitting SVT Engineering Consultants (SVT), working in a challenging marine environment, designed a cathodic protection solution to a potentially expensive problem. PTTEP Australasia (formerly Coogee Resources) until the end of 2010 operated two Floating Production, Storage and Offload Facilities (FPSOs) located in the Timor Sea. The Challis Venture and the Jabiru Venture were located approximately 650 km off-shore west of Darwin. Onshore logistical support was based in Darwin and supplemented with a Perth-based engineering support and administration team. FPSO’s These facilities are usually ex-tankers converted for the processing of hydrocarbons through a process unit on deck. Product is stored in tanks below deck and offloaded to shuttle tankers at regular intervals. FPSOs are cheaper and easier to install than fixed platforms and do not require local pipeline infrastructure to export oil back to shore.

FPSO Challis Venture.

The operation and function of an FPSO is different from a normal tanker in the following ways: it is moored in one offshore location for long periods of time; regular dry-docking may not always be possible; and unlike other shipping, the external corrosion protection systems can be interfered with by offload piping, risers, mooring lines and turret structures being in close proximity to the hull. Cathodic Protection Systems The National Offshore Petroleum Safety Authority (the governing body for offshore Oil and Gas production in Australia) and the Classification Societies (in the case of PTTEP - Lloyd’s Register) regulate the operation of these vessels. They both require that the facility operator have a robust and comprehensive corrosion management plan in place that ensures the integrity and protection of the hull against corrosion.

During construction, both FPSOs had cathodic protection systems installed. These were forward and aft transformer rectifier units: Challis Venture : 1 x 350 A (forward) and 1 x 350 A (aft) Jabiru Venture: 1 x 100 A (forward) and 1 x 450 A (aft) SVT carried out a site review of the cathodic protection systems and the effectiveness of protection being provided. In both cases, these systems were found to be functioning, but were nearing the end of their service life as several of the hull mounted impressed current anodes had failed. Anode Replacement Both FPSO facilities were nearing decommissioning and a cost effective solution was essential given their limited life expectancy. SVT’s Corrosion & Materials group was asked to provide an innovative and economical method of anode replacement.

Process deck - FPSO Jabirru Venture.

SVT first reviewed the various options and methods of installation in conjunction with the PTTEP engineering team. The anode replacement review considered essential criteria: installation requirements (based on the isolation of the facilities); anode output capacity; cyclone resistance; the event of the FPSO being disconnected from the turret and moving (a possibility due to cyclonic activity); and ability to move with the FPSO as it swings with the prevailing winds around the riser/turret. The review considered the following options for repair: 1. Replacement Hull Mounted Anodes To replace the existing hull-mounted anodes (as originally installed) would require the mobilisation of a dive crew of four to five men, plus all equipment, to the facility. This would have resulted in a significant associated cost, significantly above that of the anode elements. In addition to the anode replacement, for this option the dielectric shield previously applied would also have had to be reinstated underwater. This shield consists of a thick epoxy

material, up to 1 m in radius around the anodes. This would have added a significant increased cost due to the extended dive time. This option was therefore eliminated on cost grounds. 2. Remote Sled Anodes To install remote sled anodes would have required the mobilisation of a vessel and the support of a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). These anode sleds are placed on the sea floor and feeder cables deployed from the anode sleds to the transformer rectifier units within the FPSOs. There was concern that feed cables could potentially foul the transfer hose used to offload from the FPSO to oil tankers. An additional concern was that if the FPSO was disconnected from the turret and moved (due to bad weather) the anode sleds would have had to be abandoned. This option was also rejected. 3. Suspended Anodes SVT’s solution was to design and install innovative suspended anodes as the most cost effective option. The added benefit of this arrangement was that site personnel could carry out a large portion of the installation work fitted in around existing maintenance tasks. The cantilevered suspended anode system design also eliminated the need to mobilise either a diving crew or ROV to site. The anodes were also designed to be retrievable and installed so that the normal

maximum roll of the FPSO would not cause contact of the anode/cable with the hull. Two anodes were installed at the stern of the Challis Venture and two anodes were installed at the forward of the Jabiru Venture, the locations being chosen to be similar to that of the failed anodes. The anodes were connected to the existing transformer rectifiers (TR) and all the original anodes disconnected from that TR. All anodes were lead-silver alloy and the location were selected to replace the depleted anodes. Results Potential measurements during the commissioning of the retrofitted anodes indicated that both FPSO hulls achieved adequate protection levels. Further reports from the FPSOs indicated that the anodes continued operating at the preset output current, and adequate protection levels were maintained until the Jabiru Venture and Challis Venture were decommissioned at the end of 2010. This cantilevered suspended anode system proved to be an inventive and cost effective measure to extend the life of an FPSO cathodic protection system. Where vessels are not able to be dry docked for extended periods, this could provide a temporary solution that is both flexible and cost-effective.

Restoring Timeless Beauty for Future Generations Introduction Savcor has recently completed the meticulous restoration works for the facade of His Majesty's Theatre in Perth, Western Australia. As described below, this heritage icon is over 100 years old and can proudly lay claim to being one of the greatest examples of Edwardian era architecture in the country. About His Majesty's Theatre His Majesty's Theatre is an Edwardian baroque theatre in Perth, Western Australia. Constructed from 1902 to 1904 during a period of great growth for the town, the theatre is located on the corner of Hay Street and King Street in Perth's central business district. At the time the theatre opened, it was the largest theatre in Australia, and had seating for over 2,500 people. It is also thought to be the first reinforced concrete building constructed in Perth.

NB. Excerpt taken from www.hismajestystheatre.com.au

The Survey In 2008 Savcor’s engineers undertook a detailed survey of the facade. Considering the location of the building and the associated access difficulties the survey was undertaken using specialist rope access personnel (Figure 1). During this survey numerous defects and durability concerns were identified. This was to be expected considering the building's age and the fact that it had not undergone a major refurbishment since the late 1970s. Figure 4: Intricate restoration of decorative features.

Over its life, the theatre has hosted large-scale musicals, ballet, opera, Shakespearean plays and many other events. It has been renovated numerous times, most notably in the late 1970s when the State Government purchased it and performed an ornamental restoration whilst modernising the internal facilities. Since that time, it has been home to the West Australian Ballet and West Australian Opera Company, both of which perform there regularly. The importance of His Majesty's Theatre to the cultural fabric

of Western Australia has been recognised by its inclusion on the State Register of Heritage Places and the Register of the National Estate. It has also been named a "State Heritage Icon", and is believed to be the only remaining working Edwardian theatre in Australia."

Figure 3: Recreated plaster feature.

Restoration Works The restoration project involved an array of specialist remediation techniques. In a similar fashion to the original construction, artisan plasterers painstakingly restored damaged cornices and corbels by hand, using purpose cut templates and tools. More intricate features, such as the flowers, were recreated by using latex moulds taken from the originals (Figure 2). New futures were then cast using modern repair mortars to create perfect reproductions (Figure 3). The new features were fixed to the building using helical stainless steel pins before being coated with a high quality paint system. Probably, one of the most challenging and interesting aspects of the works was the recreation of the stunning Juliette balconies that adorn the facade. The original balconies were constructed using a concrete with coke breeze aggregate, which was typical for constructions of this era. After 100 years of exposure to the elements these balconies were found to have suffered significant deterioration and after careful

consideration, it was decided that several of the balconies would be completely rebuilt. With their clamshell bottoms, curved profile and numerous plaster features this was never going to be a straight forward process. Nevertheless, by using a combination of latex moulding and traditional construction techniques, we were able to create a product with the same aesthetic beauty of the original, while providing superior durability.

The Future This investment in the restoration of the facade of His Majesty’s Theatre will ensure that people can continue to enjoy its beauty for generations to come. In addition, the skills and lessons that are being learnt from projects of this nature can be captured and shared so that we can continue to improve the way we build and preserve our architecture in the future.

Asset Maintenance Management System Timely maintenance is imperative if structures are to remain in a sound and functional condition. Breakdown of coatings and lack of maintenance can result in the onset of corrosion and eventual destruction of an asset through loss of integrity. Guardian™ assists in maximising the value of your assets by allowing scheduling of preventative maintenance. Using a structured methodology, the Guardian™ survey encapsulates all data into a dynamic and usable format. Already in practice in the global oil & gas industry, Australian mining industry, bridges and government infrastructure, shipping and bulk handling and high voltage transmission lines, Guardian™ has proven to assist asset managers in justifying valuable maintenance expenditure.

Zintec Corrosion Solutions Pty Ltd is the distributor of Zinga in Australia and New Zealand. Zinga is a unique liquid zinc galvanising film for the recoating of weathered galvanised surfaces, abrasive blasted new steel or suitably prepared, previously painted steel. It has competitors that can demonstrate some of the benefits Zinga offers, but not all. Qualities unique to Zinga are that it is a very flexible zinc coating that provides cathodic protection of steel assets, with the ability to rejuvenate the coating in-field with minimal cleaning and surface preparation. If there is no rust emerging prior to recoating, the only requirement is a water blast to remove zinc salts and surface contamination. The rejuvenation process can be repeated indefinitely without the need for abrasive blasting, minimising life cycle costs. Service life can be predicted on a similar basis to hot dipped galvanising. It will depend on the coating thickness and the local zinc usage rate. The flexibility of Zinga enables a broad range of application possibilities. Steel can be coated for protection prior to bending or welding. New fabrications can be shop primed, with a second coating applied after installation in field. Properly applied Zinga will not flake, blister or peel and the cathodic protection qualities prevent under-creep if the coating is damaged.

ACT is the sole partner of STOPAQ B.V. who is the pioneer and manufacturer of the visco elastic corrosion protective coatings and sealants. ACT is the exclusive distributor of STOPAQ products in Australia offering unique cost effective solutions for external pipeline corrosion protection of field joints, HDD, steel pipe casing, road crossings and complete pipeline rehabilitation including valves and flanges as well as external corrosion protection of tank bottoms. In addition, ACT has selected an exclusive line of corrosion protective products and services for the rehabilitation of submerged structures such as piles and jacket legs for offshore operations.

Thermal Diffusion Galvanizing or Sherardizing was invented over 100 years ago, but has never been introduced into Australia until now. Modernisation of the process has made it efficient, clean and cost competitive as a high end, highly corrosion and abrasion resistant coating alternative. The process creates a zinc/iron alloy coating which is almost identical to hot dip galvanizing alloy layers but without the free zinc Eta layer. However, ArmorGalv alloy layers have a higher iron content which makes them harder and more stable. TDG is hard, non-magnetic, weldable and spark free. The coating is heat resistant to 650°C and has excellent adhesion to paint and rubber. Coating thickness can be controlled precisely between 20 and 150 micron. The process has zero emissions, is RoHS compliant and does not create hydrogen embrittlement. The coating has proven itself over the last 18 years in severe marine and mining environments. The first plant began operation in Newcastle last year.

Stand Number: 74 CCI is recognised as the industry leader in the design, production and installation of inshore and offshore, subsea and splash zone corrosion control systems. CCI developed its patented, cold applied Retrowrap® systems for retrofit protection of pilings, risers and pipelines as an alternative to factory coatings for new and existing underwater construction for quick and easy installation. Retrowrap is a gel-infused, tension induced wrap. The development of fabric and gel technology over the past 10 years has enabled one-piece wraps to be produced to cover pipe diameters from 3.8 to 305cm. Corrosion inhibitors and biocidal formulations contained within a range of gels provide “active” protection of steel, concrete and timber substrates in the range of -40 to 130 ° C. Retrowrap is capable of surviving cyclones and major flooding, requires little maintenance over an effective lifespan of 25 years, and is environment friendly due to minimal surface preparation requirements and the encapsulation of the thixotropic gel. CCI is exclusively represented in Australia, New Zealand and PNG by Anode Engineering Pty Ltd.

Stand Numbers: 61 & 62 Stand Number: 32 & 33 Established in Western Australia in 1996, Under-Raps provide packaging for storage, logistics and preservation. A variety of products are offered including; Polymer films, UV Shrink films and the breakthrough Intercept Technology product range that offers protection against corrosion, rust, oxidisation, static, tarnishing and mildew. With current staff of around 30, including a dedicated sewing and welding loft, Under Raps supplies packaging solutions to the resources industry, the manufacturing industry and thirdparty logistics companies. Intercept products are environmentally safe and recyclable...and offer oil free corrosion and anti-static protection for use with electronics, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, paper and fabrics. Corrosive gases can be found anywhere and everywhere. The most common and most potent of these gases – sulphur and chlorine are the two major causes of corrosion and oxidisation.

Asset Maintenance Management System Timely maintenance is imperative if structures are to remain in a sound and functional condition. Breakdown of coatings and lack of maintenance can result in the onset of corrosion and eventual destruction of an asset through loss of integrity.

Intercept Technology neutralizes corrosive and migrating gases; similar to a sacrificial “anode”, these gases are permanently bound with the copper particles that are chemically bonded to the packaging materials. In other words, when corrosive gases come into contact with the Intercept material, they are instantly neutralised. All materials are equally protected – only one non-toxic packaging material for all applications!

Guardian™ assists in maximising the value of your assets by allowing scheduling of preventative maintenance. Using a structured methodology, the Guardian™ survey encapsulates all data into a dynamic and usable format.

Intercept Technology products are available in shrink film, polymer bags, woven plastics, foams, canvas and corrugated mediums – Intercept products can be custom designed to suit a diverse range of uses and objects of any size.

Already in practice in the global oil & gas industry, Australian mining industry, bridges and government infrastructure, shipping and bulk handling and high voltage transmission lines, Guardian™ has proven to assist asset managers in justifying valuable maintenance expenditure.

Stand Number: 65 Independent Corrosion Engineers & Consultants Established in 1981, Incospec & Associates Australia has grown to be one of the largest Corrosion Engineering Consultancies in Australasia. We provide both independent and authoritative consultancy in the fields of Corrosion Engineering and Asset Management. Our independence is a valuable asset, enabling us to offer our clients totally unbiased optimum advice, free from commercial constraints in the following areas: Failure analysis Cathodic protection Welding inspection and supervision Asset maintenance surveys Metallurgy & Materials Consulting 3rd party independent coating inspection Coating selection and specifications Concrete condition surveys Training

Stand Numbers: 61 & 62 Stand Number: 32 & 33 Established in Western Australia in 1996, Under-Raps provide packaging for storage, logistics and preservation. A variety of products are offered including; Polymer films, UV Shrink films and the breakthrough Intercept Technology product range that offers protection against corrosion, rust, oxidisation, static, tarnishing and mildew. With current staff of around 30, including a dedicated sewing and welding loft, Under Raps supplies packaging solutions to the resources industry, the manufacturing industry and thirdparty logistics companies. Intercept products are environmentally safe and recyclable...and offer oil free corrosion and anti-static protection for use with electronics, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, paper and fabrics. Corrosive gases can be found anywhere and everywhere. The most common and most potent of these gases – sulphur and chlorine are the two major causes of corrosion and oxidisation.

Asset Maintenance Management System Timely maintenance is imperative if structures are to remain in a sound and functional condition. Breakdown of coatings and lack of maintenance can result in the onset of corrosion and eventual destruction of an asset through loss of integrity.

Intercept Technology neutralizes corrosive and migrating gases; similar to a sacrificial “anode”, these gases are permanently bound with the copper particles that are chemically bonded to the packaging materials. In other words, when corrosive gases come into contact with the Intercept material, they are instantly neutralised. All materials are equally protected – only one non-toxic packaging material for all applications!

Guardian™ assists in maximising the value of your assets by allowing scheduling of preventative maintenance. Using a structured methodology, the Guardian™ survey encapsulates all data into a dynamic and usable format.

Intercept Technology products are available in shrink film, polymer bags, woven plastics, foams, canvas and corrugated mediums – Intercept products can be custom designed to suit a diverse range of uses and objects of any size.

Already in practice in the global oil & gas industry, Australian mining industry, bridges and government infrastructure, shipping and bulk handling and high voltage transmission lines, Guardian™ has proven to assist asset managers in justifying valuable maintenance expenditure.
