Work­ing in the area of main­te­nance, hor­i­zon­tal in­fra­struc­ture and en­gi­neer­ing?

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

The 2nd New Zealand Coat­ings & Cor­ro­sion Con­fer­ence & Expo will be held at the Eller­slie Events Cen­tre in Auck­land 29–30 July.

The key­note ad­dress starts off with the eco­nom­ics of cor­ro­sion by Wayne Thom­son of An­ode En­gi­neer­ing (Aus­tralia).

There will be var­i­ous case stud­ies such as the story be­hind the re­pair of Vic­to­ria Wharf, the prepa­ra­tions un­der­way for the Maka­tote Viaduct and the pro­tec­tive coat­ings history for Aus­tralia’s Phillip Is­land San Remo Bridge.

There is also an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion to do with the dif­fer­ing opin­ions within in­dus­try for how to pre­pare and coat aged gal­va­niz­ing. Glean from hear­ing ICS In­spec­tion & Con­sul­tancy Ser­vices on method­olo­gies for coat­ing per­for­mance, how far ap­pli­ca­tions should go when it comes to sur­face prepa­ra­tion and re­tain­ing war­ranties for work com­pleted.

The con­fer­ence is packed with prac­ti­cal con­tent, in­clud­ing a ses­sion on plan­ning for dura­bil­ity – es­sen­tial when it comes to the main­te­nance or im­ple­men­ta­tion of hor­i­zon­tal in­fra­struc­ture and en­gi­neer­ing. Sean Ry­der of Phoenix So­lu­tions says that the most ef­fec­tive way of en­sur­ing the dura­bil­ity of new and ex­ist­ing as­sets is to put a for­mal doc­u­mented dura­bil­ity plan in place for im­ple­men­ta­tion. Ry­der will ex­plain the en­tire process from be­gin­ning to end in­clud­ing how to spec­ify dura­bil­ity re­quire­ments dur­ing Ten­der­ing and the dif­fer­ences be­tween the re­quire­ments for ex­ist­ing and new as­sets.

Both In­ter­na­tional Paint and Du­lux are lead­ing spon­sors at this event. The con­fer­ence has an ex­hi­bi­tion area joined to it fa­cil­i­tat­ing ex­hibitor’s prod­ucts and ser­vices. See www. con­­ro­sion for the agenda and to register.
