Aegion Corp. (St. Louis, Missouri, USA) announced that its subsidiary, Corrpro Companies, Inc., has been awarded a contract valued at more than $6 million to deliver a comprehensive package of cathodic protection (CP) services to prevent corrosion on new midstream pipeline construction in West Texas.
Corrpro says it has provided full-service CP solutions for more than 35 years, and it has performed alternating current (AC) mitigation for 20 years.
For this contract, Corrpro is leveraging its engineering capabilities to design the full CP system, including AC mitigation, on more than 600 miles (965.6 km) of pipeline. The group will also install and commission the system, as well as provide ongoing corrosion monitoring through close interval surveys to ensure the CP system’s continued effectiveness.
Corrpro says it has developed a new suite of asset integrity technology offerings in recent years to significantly improve the speed, accuracy, and analytics associated with CP performance. These tools include a digital database and robust analytics capabilities that provide critical, interactive, on-demand geospatial data and assessments of external corrosion threats to help guide faster and more targeted decisions for pipeline operators, as part of an overall asset integrity management program.
Corrpro plans to utilize its proprietary asset integrity management hardware and software in several line locations for the project, as well as traditional monitoring methods, to identify and address challenges—all while improving safety for personnel, as well as strengthening pipeline integrity.
“This is one of the larger project wins for Corrpro in recent years and is a perfect opportunity for Corrpro to deliver a comprehensive offering of design, engineering, installation, material sales, and ongoing pipeline integrity monitoring and remediation,” says Charles R. Gordon, president and CEO of Aegion. “Additionally, teams are able to leverage our recent technology investments through our asset integrity management portal to deliver more value and real-time monitoring capabilities for our client.”
The project began this summer and is expected to conclude in the spring of 2021.
