There are currently more than 800 wind generating structures in the Northern Sea and 80 in the Baltic Sea, and more than 20 wind farms, each with a large number of structures and/or towers, will open in the next few years in these areas. In planning for these wind farms, the corrosion protection of the structures to be installed has become a focus of public interest, especially their effect on the environment which is often criticized or feared. There is also a large and immediate task for corrosion specialists to formulate standards in order to protect these steel structures effectively for a period of 25 years under very corrosive conditions.The German Federal Maritime and Hydrography Agency (BSH) has formulated minimum requirements (Mindestanforderungen1) which describe the measures to be taken for German offshore wind energy structures concerning their integrity, i.e. ensuring their function and stability, for a lifetime of 25 years. This includes planning, certification, three-step releases and suitability of corrosion protection systems. The BSH will therefore will introduce guidelines for corrosion protection for wind farm
structures (VGB-BAW-Standard2) in 2016. It is important in Germany that corrosion protection measures for wind farms have no adverse impact on the marine environment. This means that while there is a high risk of pollutants entering the maritime environment, virtually no pollution is permitted. Problems can arise because of the release of iron due to corrosion, and aluminum as well other metals from sacrificial anodes, and last but not least, because of solvents and other components typically used as coating materials, for example, isocyanate and bisphenol-A.Previous tests of binders carried out by Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (BAW) have shown that there are well-formulated materials such as epoxy and polyurethane which show no relevant emission of environmentally hazardous molecules3. The calculated large mass of aluminium used for galvanic anodes for cathodic protection4 can easily be reduced when these anodes are used in combination with coatings or replaced by impressed current systems.The problem of corrosion of maritime structures should be resolved in the context of all questions concerning the

SSPC-PA 1, Shop, Field and Maintenance Coating of Metals, provides basic requirements for best practices for application of industrial/marine protective coatings to coated or uncoated metallic substrates. This guide is intended as a reference for specifiers and contractors in regard to the coating application and process control procedures. The scope of this standard includes specific as well as general requirements for the application of liquid coatings applied by brush, spray or roller. The main revisions include, an expanded scope that includes coated or uncoated metallic substrates in addition to steel, and a brief discussion of the importance of a contractors work plan as a method of project oversight and quality assurance, with supplementary resource information;Additionally, a section has been added to address pre-application requirements clarifying that the contractor is responsible for documenting resolution of ambiguous or conflicting requirements prior to beginning the application process, verifying that the prepared
surface meets project requirements for cleanliness and surface profile prior to coating application, and ensuring that ambient conditions comply with project requirements prior to coating application.SSPC ACS-1 Standard Practice/NACE No. 13, Industrial Coating and Lining Application Specialist Qualification and Certification, can be used to validate or assess a candidates or employees knowledge and skills level based on qualification in a certification program. It was designed for use by personnel involved in developing such education and certification programs.Important revisions include, adjustments to Level I, II and III qualifications requirements, including demonstration of abilities, work experience and training options, and exam completion, and requirements to maintain qualification status.SSPC-CS-23.00, Specification for the Application of Thermal Spray Coatings (Metallizing) of Aluminum, Zinc, and Their Alloys and Composites for the
Corrosion Protection of Steel, is a joint standard, issued by SSPC, AWS (the American Welding Society) and NACE International. It is designed for use by facility owners and specifiers, inspectors and contractors in applications of thermal spray coatings.Also classed as AWS C2.23 and NACE No. 12, the standard establishes minimum requirements for surface preparation before thermal spray application; application of thermal spray coatings; and applications of sealers or topcoats over thermal spray coatings.The 2016 revision of this standard includes a reorganization of the previous 2003 version, as well as the revision of requirements that have been revised since 2003. New appendices also describe optional procedures for verifying adhesion and thermal spray coating thickness, referring to SSPC-PA-2. Appendices that described or applied to procurement and contract requirements were removed in the new version of the standard.
Three standards have recently been updated by sspc: the society for protective coatings
Creating new barriers with graphene According to Applied Graphene Materials (AGM), independent testing has shown that the addition of their graphene nanoplatelets (A-GNPs) to epoxy coatings, has demonstrated performance enhancements in standard anti-corrosion and barrier tests. Very small additions of A-GNPs decreased water vapour transmission rates by up to 95% and extended time to initial corrosion by more than 500%. AGM reports that it has already entered several product development programmes and these latest results highlight the technical and commercial viability of this technology.

Arc energy resources acquires clg engineering
Gloucestershire-based Arc Energy Resources, the weld overlay cladding and fabrication specialist, has acquired precision machining company CLG Engineering, based in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.CLG Engineering provides CNC milling, CNC turning and assembly services to, amongst others, the oil and gas, automotive and rail industries. It is certified to ISO 9001and has over 40 years engineering experience.The acquisition means that Arc Energy Resources 80 employees are supplemented by CLG Engineerings 14, to create a stronger team with a wider mix of skills. Both companies are supported by teams of experienced project managers, inspectors and welding engineers, with access to a wide range of auxiliary processes in-house, including heat treatment, NDT and CMM inspection.
