Engineered structures operating in or near the marine environment are subject to one of the most aggressive environment for material degradation. Corrosion, erosion, thermal excursion, and last but not least biofouling. Aiming to be reliable and environmental friendly the Ocean Energy Sector need a surface protection system dealing with very hard challenges.

A novel technique is emerging from the shipping and transportation sector in the EU and this is so promising that can guarantee efficacy for more than 25 years with trace emission of organic biocide. This technique is open for novel applications and this is why from the ship sector now it can be exported to the OE sector.

The OCEANIC project will fuse together this new antifouling technology with the established thermal spray aluminum coating to give in a one fit all protection system for long-lasting corrosion and biofouling resistance in the marine environment. This will be called TSA-TSP or just OCEANIC coatings.
