Corrosion and material integrity in offshore and maritime environment
In industrial constructions, offshore structural integrity and corrosion go hand in hand. The need for adapted materials that can withstand harsh conditions and that are compatible with cost and lifetime requirements are more relevant than ever. Pushing the limits of conservatism whilst limiting risks is a crucial aspect to prepare tomorrow’s market opportunities.
To allow a better understanding of the benefits of new and implemented solutions, ENDURES and OCAS jointly organise this one-day seminar at the ENDURES premises in Den Helder on Tuesday March 10th 2020, from 09:30 to 17:30.
