Coatings for energy management– interference-free power supply from high-quality coating systems

Energy management is an important part of today's economy. There is hardly any industry that does not need some form of energy. Gas or oil pipelines or biogas, hydropower plants or wind turbines for power generation – transport of fuels must be as reliable as energy generation and forwarding of the energy to the respective consumer. Since energy-management systems are subject to a great amount of weather and other harmful influences, such as abrasion, chemicals and dirt, they need effective protection that reduces corrosion damage and wear, and that ensures the highest usage duration without expensive downtimes. Our high-quality coatings can be used here. They are customised to aggressive ambient conditions to increase your equipment's service life, and therefore also its economic efficiency.

Robust corrosion protection for buildings in the offshore area

Offshore wind turbines and the associated systems are an indispensable potential for power production in the era of the energy revolution. However, they pose special challenges to manufacturers and operators alike. The rough conditions on the sea – strong winds, high waves, salt water – can severely damage unprotected steel structures very quickly. Continuous repairs and restoration work would result from this. Reliable operation for many years would be impossible without appropriate corrosion protection. Coating systems for the offshore area must be designed to resist the demanding sea climate for approx. 20 to 25 years. At the same time, they should require little maintenance. The most important norms and standards in this respect include the EN ISO 12944-6, NORSOK M-501 and ISO 20340. The minimum requirements to coating systems are C5-M for machine parts and inner surfaces of towers and the NORSOK M-501, system no. 1, for outer surfaces of towers.

Surface coating of high-pressure pipelines

High-pressure long-distance gas pipelines are naturally subject to a high risk. Therefore, they must be designed so as to ensure operational safety for a long period of time. Sufficient stability of the pipelines is ensured by making the structure of steel that meets certain specifications, such as high tensile resistance. In spite of all its advantages, steel also comes with a decisive disadvantage: It corrodes if not protected by high-quality coating. We protect underground and undersea pipelines and pipings from damage caused by mechanical effects and the resulting corrosion-related wear by coating them with plastics (polyolefins and polyurethanes). Beyond this, we offer you function coatings for the inside of the pipes, e.g. to optimise the flow properties of natural gas.

Coatings for overhead masts/electricity masts

Overhead lines and electricity masts on land are subject to slightly less strain than offshore facilities, but nevertheless require adequate corrosion protection in order to meet their purpose for many years. We coat such transmission network parts with water-based solvent-free coating systems that meet all demands to environmental compatibility and sustainability. Of course, we will also take care of the required logistics for transport to the construction site and perform improvement work right on site.
