Surface Protection

Surface Protection

Operation is based on maintenance principles that meet overall requirements in terms of corrosion protection – from technical condition, planning and completion to project management, procurement and waste handling.

Quality control

To ensure that the paint system performs as desired, especially in terms of water-based paint, temperature, humidity and air circulation must be at a constant level.

Pre-treatment is an essential factor in terms of the coating’s life span and corrosion protection properties. Proper cleaning and level of coarseness are important for the quality of the coating applied to the treated surface. To ensure quality in accordance with specified requirements, StS use certified surface inspectors and qualified personnel to supervise and control the work of all key stages.

Necessary personnel, tools, materials and equipment to perform Ultra High Pressure (UHP) blasting (water), cleaning and painting (primer + top coating) according to the paint specifications for the individual offshore unit or as specified in the individual Purchase Order.

All areas were corrosion was present, the areas were detergent washed followed by fresh water to remove any oil, grease or chemicals that were present, all corrosion and loose flaky paint was removed by UHP and blasting, any loose edges that were present after UHP and blasting had taken place was removed by mechanical disking so as to prevent any lifting’s of the coating when overlapping onto sound coated areas.

Mechanical disking in areas of corrosion around cable racks. This is due to the close vicinity of the power cables to the areas were corrosion is present, were as UHP and blasting could damage the power cables.


The surface program was delivered ahead of both timeframe and budget.
