Concrete Asset Integrity of Marine Infrastructure
Corrosion is a major challenge for the port and marine industry, and the cost of corrosion can be substantial. According to some industry estimates, the cost of corrosion to Australia’s infrastructure, including ports and marine assets, is in the billions of dollars each year. To minimize the impact of corrosion, regular inspections and maintenance, including concrete repair, are crucial to ensure the longevity and safety of these important assets.
Concrete repair is essential for marine assets to maintain the structural integrity and functionality of these facilities. Deterioration of concrete structures in marine environments due to exposure to salt, moisture, and other harsh weather conditions can weaken structures, leading to safety concerns and potentially costly repairs. Regular concrete repair helps extend the life of the structures, improve their reliability, and minimize the risk of downtime and disruptions to operations. Ultimately, concrete repair helps ensure the efficient and safe functioning of ports and marine infrastructure, which are critical for supporting the country’s trade and economic activities.
