Qatar University (QU) College of Engineering (CENG), in partnership with the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) jointly organised the NACE Qatar Corrosion Forum.
Held under the theme “Towards Reduced Corrosion Costs in Qatar,” the event was attended by delegates on behalf of QU, NACE, Qatargas, DNV GL (an international accredited registrar and classification society headquartered in Hovik, Norway) and others.
CENG acting dean Prof Abdelmagid Hamouda said the seminar had a number of scientists and researchers from several research centres from various international universities.
Qatargas’ director of reliability Abdullah al-Hajri said: “Qatar University is working to raise public awareness and develop future leaders to protect society as a whole from the negative effects of corrosion. Our mission is to ensure the understanding of risks and develop solutions for safe and reliable operations in the future.”
NACE Qatar branch president Mohsen al-Haddad said: “Corrosion continues to be a major threat to various industries and more needs to be done to protect society from its adverse effect. This forum provided a platform for industry and academia to participate in major corrosion issues and discuss the best ways to reduce it effectively.”
DNV GL project manager Ali Mousavi highlighted the importance of choosing the right materials to mitigate the risk of corrosion.
He also briefed the audience on factors that could influence the strategy of selecting materials, ensuring that the optimum material section could lead to significant cost saving in the long run.
Mousavi stressed that the design for corrosion control and quality management in the construction and manufacturing phase are essential for the process and overall life of the asset.
