The Water Service Providers (WSP) and Water Service Authorities (WSA) make significant financial investments in pipelines and associated water infrastructure. It follows that asset owners in the water industry are desirous of the longest possible life expectancy, which in turn usually relates to the longest possible time period being required before first maintenance and a strong preference for the highest possible level of corrosion protection of the assets. It is a fact that corrosion is often the single biggest contributor to the deterioration of the asset value. The skill and workmanship utilised in corrosion mitigation has a significant bearing on the ultimate corrosion protection and life expectancy of the assets. Education and training has been identified as a South African national priority, and upgrading of Corrosion Protection Skills is essential for service delivery within the broad Water Industry.
The Corrosion Institute is offering a three-day certificated course titled “Best practice Awareness of Corrosion in Water Utilities” which aims to address these issues and provide a suitable background for those who have not been exposed to materials and corrosion.
