1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Australian Electrolysis Committee is pleased to bring you their second biannual meeting for 2020. This webinar, which will take the place of the annual electrolysis forum held at the Corrosion and Prevention Conference will feature a diverse range of presentations covering all things Cathodic Protection.
Who can attend?
Anyone with an interest in Cathodic Protection is welcome to register.
This event will begin at 1:00 pm AEDT
1:00PM – Opening session
Bruce Ackland ACA Cathodic Protection Technical Group Chair
1:15PM “ISO 15589-2 “Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries — Cathodic protection of pipeline transportation systems”
Bruce obtained a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Physics at Monash University in 1979 and a Doctor of Philosophy in 1984, also at Monash University in the Department of Materials Engineering. Bruce has worked in the corrosion and cathodic protection industry since 1982, forming Bruce Ackland and Associates in 1985. Cathodic protection projects have involved work throughout Australia, Asia, USA and North Africa. Bruce maintains an active role in Australian Standards committees, the Australian Electrolysis Committee and is an accredited ACA lecturer.
1:35 PM “Complexities in Designing a New Rail in an Old City”
Jim Hickey, Ausgrid
Jim Hickey is the Electrolysis Engineering Officer at Ausgrid. Jim has over 36 years’ experience with Energy Authorities covering electrical testing, earthing design and assessment and electrolysis corrosion fields. Jim is also the Chairperson for the NSW Electrolysis Committee and is an active member of the Australian Electrolysis Committee and the Australasian Corrosion Association NSW and Newcastle Branches. As Ausgrid’s ACA accredited Corrosion Technologist, Jim is responsible for managing the electrolysis corrosion aspects of Ausgrid’s electrical network.
1:55 PM “Recent discussion on cathodic protection of hydrogen containing pipelines – Is hydrogen embrittlement a new concern”
Mike Tan, Deakin University
Dr Tan’s principal teaching and research interests are in corrosion science and engineering and their applications for enhancing the reliability and durability of civil and industrial infrastructures. His work over the past two decades spanned the range from fundamental study on issues such as electrochemical heterogeneity and corrosion science, and applied research on issues such as corrosion testing and monitoring, localised corrosion prediction, corrosion inhibition and anti-corrosion coatings, to industry engagement and contracted research on issues such as pitting corrosion of external and internal oil pipeline, and corrosion of desalination pipeline weldments. He is a Program Leader of the Energy Pipelines Cooperative Research Centre Australia
2:15 PM Transforma Robusta” – Manufacturing for remote tropical areas – a trade-off between equipment uptime and features”
Richard Brodribb, M. Brodribb Pty Ltd
Richard Brodribb is Managing Director of M. Brodribb Pty Ltd. He is an electrical engineer with over 30 years of specialist experience in the design and manufacture of impressed current rectifier systems. He’s been responsible for providing cathodic protection systems for the Oil and Gas, Water and Infrastructure sectors around Australia and overseas, including recent projects in PNG, Sri Lanka, Russia and Malaysia and Indonesia. He’s presently Treasurer of the Victorian Branch of the ACA, a member of the Australian Electrolysis Committee, a Life Member of the IEEE and a 20 year + member of NACE
