Jetty Handrails & all Pipework on East / West gas jetties: mechanically prepare all areas of corrosion to ST3 and apply coatings as to Jetty Pipework.
- Environmental considerations were paramount on this contract and drip trays were used under all compressors with spill dry absorbent being available throughout at the workface. All paint materials were stored in a bunded storage container within the works compound and only small quantities required for each day’s operations were taken onto the jetty area.
