Case Study
Polyglass VEF and Corrocoat Biofoul Protect Offshore Caissons


Oil & Gas.

The Challenge

Corroserve were awarded a contract by a fabricator of structural steelwork and pipe work. to provide full corrosion protection for eight 1.25m diameter caissons, each unit being 10 meters long.

The caissons were fabricated in Aberdeen and were to be lined at Corroserve’s facility in Leeds, prior to before being transported to South Africa. They would then be welded together, prior to corrosion protection of the field welds. Thanks to its outstanding track record for this type of work, the client selected Corrocoat’s Polyglass VEF for both the internal and external corrosion protection, with Corrocoat Biofoul being used externally to reduce marine fouling in service. The client was also looking for a solution which offered continuity of supply and a high quality solution for the site work required in South Africa.
