At the beginning of the month, Nippon Paint Marine was reported to have its tank coating NOA60HS certified by the Norwegian Technology Standards Institution.

The self-indicating technology meets the requirements of the NORSOK M-501 standard and is specifically designed for use in ballast water tanks, oil and petrochemical tanks, and void spaces.

According to Nippon, the NORSOK standards were introduced in 1994 by the Norwegian offshore industry and continue to serve as global guidelines for adding value and ensuring cost-effective design, construction, operation, and maintenance within aggressive offshore environments.

Specifically, the NORSOK M-501 provides the guidelines for the selection of coating systems, minimum dry film thickness and surface preparation to ensure quality standards for all aspects of the offshore industry.

“The addition of NOA60HS to the NORSOK M-501 approved product range marks a significant development for offshore vessels and installations, such as FSOs, FSRUs and FPSOs,” said Makoto Nakagawa, Marketing Manager, Nippon Paint Marine.

“As these assets are designed with much longer service intervals than conventional vessels, an effective and reliable long-life anti-corrosive tank coating is crucial to their safe operation. NOA60HS eliminates the risk of coatings applied with low film thickness, a contributory factor in corrosion influenced structural failure.”
