Comment | More

SSPC President Bruce Henley presented five 2009 Structure Awards for outstanding coating projects at the 2009 SSPC Annual Meeting and Awards Program, held February 15 at PACE 2009 in New Orleans, LA. The awards and the winners are described below. The winning projects will also be featured in JPCL.

The William Johnson Award recognizes an outstanding achievement demonstrating aesthetic merit in industrial or commercial coatings work. Nominated projects must have been completed within the past three years. The qualities that may be considered for aesthetic merit include color, gloss or texture, or the impact the coating has on the structure or the structure’s environment. The coating may represent a theme, an object, or a specific graphic design.

This year’s winner of the Johnson Award is the Georgia Dome, owned by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority. Specialty Finishes, Inc. (Atlanta, GA) performed the coatings work with materials supplied by the Tnemec Company, Inc. (North Kansas City, MO).

The E. Crone Knoy Award recognizes an outstanding achievement in industrial or commercial coatings work that demonstrates innovation, durability, or utility. Nominated projects must have been completed within the past three years. The qualities that may represent outstanding achievement in this area include excellence in craftsmanship or execution of the work, and use of state-of-the-art techniques or products to creatively solve problems or provide long-term service.

This year’s Knoy Award winner is the Cardinal Unit 3 Cooling Tower (Brilliant, OH), which is owned by the Buckeye Power Company and managed by American Electric Power. Coatings supplied by The Sherwin-Williams Co. (Cleveland, OH) were applied by New Castle, DE-based Cannon Sline.

The Charles G. Munger Award recognizes an outstanding industrial or commercial coatings project demonstrating longevity of the original coating. The structure may have had spot repairs or been overcoated (with the original coating still intact).

“Hats Off”(Calgary Airport Tanks) won this year’s Munger Award. Petker Coatings Ltd. used materials supplied by Devoe Coatings for work on the tanks, which are owned by The Devonian Foundation. NWS Inspection Services inspected the coating work.

The George Campbell Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the completion of a difficult or complex industrial or commercial coatings project. Nominated projects must have been completed in the past three years. The qualities that may represent achievement in a difficult or complex structure include work occurring in harsh or extreme environmental conditions; work completed under strict time constraints, limited access, or in high traffic areas; a structure with complex structural components; or work coordinated with multiple trades or sub-contractors. Two projects received the George Campbell Award this year.
One George Campbell Award went to the Liard River Bridge (Alaska Highway, BC, Canada). The structure’s owner, Public Works and Government Services, Canada, hired Certified Coating Specialists, Inc. (Castlegar, BC) for the coatings work. Stoncor Group Canada/Carboline/Plasite Coatings Group supplied the coatings materials.

The second George Campbell Award was given for work performed on the Berth 2 East and West Potash Ship Loaders (North Vancouver, BC), a structure owned by Neptune Bulk Terminals Canada Ltd. Certified Coating Specialists (Castlegar, BC) were the applicators, and Camcoat Industries, Ltd. (Burnaby, BC) supplied the coating materials for the job. Camcoat is a distributor for International Paint.

Dear Sirs. I am offer corrosive resistant coats of pure Zinc and barrier coats of pure Aluminum which where protecting surface of steels from rust 50 and more years with no other maintenance. I was doing tanks, columns, stands, beams and bridges constructions from 1986, and sprayed surface of steel don't rusted to this time, that owners save lot of money which where have to used for maintenance and painting. My equipment I can use anywhere construction steel is located. I use diesel compressors and all my other equipment working with pressure of air and gases, (acetylene-oxygen). With my guns I can spray high located or closed surfaces like inside the tanks with opening over 36 inch. I can spray other metal coats what customers need (Monel, Babbitt, molybdenum and stainless steels alloys #2, #4, # 5, bronze, brass, cupper and other.) I can send my simple to your company for testing if you interesting about my job. Sincerely msplub
