The platform legs of the Bekok B Platform were suffering from severe corrosion and required to be refurbished.
There could be no disruption to the live working platform and therefore grit blasting was not permissible. The coating application had to take place in high humidity and in continuously wet splash zones where there was a short time frame for application in between the tides.
Water jetting was utilized as the surface preparation method. One coat of wet & rust tolerant Epo-chem™ RL 500PF was then applied, followed by one topcoat of highly chemical and UV resistant Epo-chem™ RC 500GTC.
Substantial time and cost savings were achieved by utilizing water jetting and Chemco’s wet and rust tolerant Epo-chem™ RL 500PF as the coating application could begin immediately upon completion of the surface preparation.
