OVERVIEW

Loch side crane at Invergarry Hydro Station was to be refurbished in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way.

CHALLENGE

Total encapsulation, grit blasting and using a conventional 3-coat system, was totally impractical and cost prohibitive.

SOLUTION

Utilising totally wet & rust-tolerant Epo-chem™ RL 500PF, all objectives could be achieved. Surface preparation consisted mechanical/power tool cleaning of the substrate followed by high pressure water wash to remove surface contamination. All areas down to metal was patch repaired using one coat of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF followed by an overall full coat of Epo-chem™ RL 500PF @ 150µ DFT by brush and roller.

OUTCOME

The work was carried out with no environmental impact, no delays due to weather in a very simple and cost-effective manner.

BENEFITS

• No grit blasting, encapsulation
• Huge cost savings
• Reduced H&S and Fire Precaution
• Reduced cost of plant and equipment
• Application can carried out in adverse climatic condition without protection
