One corrosion-prevention company has coated a bridge in Croatia with technology that will allegedly give the bridge a service life of 130 years. Do you believe corrosion-protection technology could extend a bridge’s life by over a century?

If you are talking about bridge "coating" service life of 130 years I have no doubt that a corrosion - prevention company made such a claim. As for the bridges service life issues other than coating life regardless of what it is may limited by other issues other than corrosion such as fatigue life or increased loading or reduced functionality or other calamities may determine a bridges service life. As for a coating on a bridge lasting 130 years I am extremely doubtfull but am standing by waiting to be proven wrong.

Unless there is periodic maintenance being carried out from time to time.

Without inspection and possible maintenance this is highly unlikely, there are no guarantee times for coting lifetime given in the standards, especially ISO 12944 is talking about durability and is making a distinct differentiation to guarantee!
