Co-operative Bulk Handling KGJ Gravity Fender Refurbishment
Starting in October 2004 FIRMA Industries started what was and probably
still is WA largest Stainless Steel Rebar project. This project involved
replacement of 48 35 ton Gravity Fenders on the Kwinana Grain Jetty.
This project places FIRMA Industries into the forefront on corrosion
protection practices. The Gravity Fenders are situated in the very
high corrosive tidal splash zone of the jetty. They are constructed
having a design life expectancy of 100 years. This was obtained by
using 316 and 2205 Duplex Stainless Steel Rebar, installation of cathodic
protection tabs for future connection, Special designed 50MPa Concrete
then finally treated with a Silane Penetrating Sealer.
