Ensure The Lights Don’t Go Out: Preventative Corrosion Control In The Energy Industry

Given the diverse range of corrosion-prone facilities in the power industry — nuclear, fossil fuel, coal, alternative energy — it can be tough to know where to begin in the fight against rust. But since a power plant failure means lights out, it’s absolutely critical to develop a proper preventative coatings maintenance and management plan before a failure.

And, when dealing with substances like gas and nuclear material, asset failure can very easily become a facility-wide, city-wide, and even nation-wide catastrophe. To stop asset failure before it begins, you must start with the correct protective coating.

Choosing the correct coating without the proper expertise would be as futile as trying to operate a coal-fired plant without the coal — it can’t, and shouldn’t, be done. An experienced coatings inspector will work with you to ascertain which coatings would best serve each of your assets, inspect the coating as it is being applied and help you develop a long-term preventative maintenance plan to extend the life of your coatings application.
