Applus+ successfully performed a tank painting and coating inspection for a prominent gold mine in Papua New Guinea. We supervised the coating application on a barren tank, ensuring compliance with manufacturer standards and client specifications. We leveraged the expertise of the nation's only PNG Level 2 Coating Inspector to ensure quality and cost-effectiveness.
The inspection assessed coating quality, detecting defects like uneven thickness, air bubbles, cracks, and other imperfections. We verified proper substrate adhesion and corrosion protection. Thorough documentation, progress updates, and detailed reports were maintained, addressing concerns and recommending corrective actions.
Our painting and coating inspection is pivotal in safeguarding equipment and extending its service life. By minimising the risk of corrosion-induced failures and the subsequent release of hazardous substances, we actively contributed to preventing environmental damage. We prioritize equipment protection, safety, and environmental responsibility.
