Microbiologically Induced Corrosion of Steel Structures in Port Environment

From July 2008 to June 2011

MICSIPE recherche développement corrosion accéléréeObjective

The over goal of MICSIPE project was to develop and to optimize diagnosis and predictive tools for industrial users and experts, by verifying that diversity and activity of some bacteria communities are ones of the main triggering effects of Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC).

Tubercule de corrosion en milieu portuaireALWC is a particularly aggressive form of localized corrosion for waterfront marine structures which can lead to holing, loss of backfill and stop of operating, iIf ALWC is not properly diagnosed and left untreated.
Solutions to mitigate this worldwide corrosion phenomenon have been used as default options – protective coating and cathodic protection – but their implementation and maintenance associated with still remain costly, leading to increased investment for new construction or rather expensive cost for protection and for repairs of existing constructions.

Recherche et développement corrosion travail de recherche et analyseA corrosion influenced by microorganisms

Different research actions have been launched involving steel industry, port authorities and associations. It is nowadays admitted that ALWC is a form of Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC) for marine structures, although accurate mechanism and interrelationships between organic matter and corrosion products remain unclear.
