SeaShield™ Protection at Falmouth Fuel Piers
World Fuel Services Europe Ltd has recently installed Winn & Coales (Denso) Ltd’s SeaShield ™ systems to protect both of their fuel piers, which are also part of the Eastern Breakwater project at Falmouth. Sixteen support pipes on the old pier have been protected with SeaShield 100™ and nine SeaShield 2000FD™ jackets have been applied on the new pier. The materials were applied on both piers using rope access.
SeaShield systems provide long-term corrosion control for steel, concrete and timber structures in the splash and intertidal zones. They accommodate piles (such as at Falmouth) with cylindrical, hexagonal, square and H cross sections.
