Case Study: Great Yarmouth Power Station

Great Yarmouth Power Station

Great Yarmouth Power Station’s operator RWE had commissioned work to upgrade the leak defences of the gas condensing unit situated onsite. RWE had to ensure that the unit was fully maintained as it faces directly onto a public highway.

ObjectiveThe maintenance prevention plan involved removing any likelihood of flange material integrity breakdown and gas exposure by subjecting specified flanges, valves and unions to Oxifree TM198 coating – within a defined budget.

ProcessOxifree UK were asked to provide a full site survey alongside RWE site technical staff to determine the flanges classified as ‘high risk’. A financially driven project was undertaken, in the first instance, to ensure the integrity of the condensing unit and associated components and Oxifree coating TM198 was selected for use on the project.
