Cortec® was pleased to share innovative CorroLogic® Engineered Solutions to the common problem of AST (aboveground storage tank) soil-side corrosion at the Tank Storage Asia conference, September 25th-26th in Singapore. Philip Horsford, Regional Manager of Cortec® Southeast Asia (Cortec® SEA), found it an excellent opportunity to talk with operational maintenance staff, C-suite executives, and consultants involved in designing tank terminals. Tank operators were especially impressed and eager to adopt the innovative CorroLogic® system, which (thanks to the ease and effectiveness of Cortec® VCI technology for corrosion protection of hard-to-reach spaces) continuously inhibits corrosion in the presence or absence of traditional cathodic protection systems and can be installed on existing ASTs with zero tank downtime.
There was also an overwhelming response to the CorroLogic® Dispensing System, which was officially launched in the region during Tank Storage Asia 2019. While some individuals were already familiar with it as a market leading solution, Cortec® SEA was especially pleased to introduce it to some of the leading terminal operators in Singapore, as well as to the broader Asia-Pacific region. Cortec® SEA has already been able to schedule several client follow-up meetings and looks forward to implementing the system throughout the region in the near future.
While the oil and gas industry most often comes to mind when thinking of corrosion protection for AST bottoms, Philip was pleasantly surprised to also find ample opportunity to share CorroLogic® corrosion solutions with the broader tank market at Tank Storage Asia. He commented, “It was great to diversify out of the oil industry at the show and speak to individuals from power and water, aviation and even palm oil storage terminal operators. It goes to show the wide-reaching benefits of this solution are greater than the traditional oil terminal market.”
