KILLYBEGS IMMERSED PIER LEGS

KILLYBEGS IMMERSED PIER LEGS

Project Description
The application of ZINGA on the pier legs at Killybegs Harbour was done in the summer of 2000.

The customer, the Irish Department of Marine and Natural Resources, and the contractor, SAR Marine & General, waited a full year before giving any official comment on the performance of the ZINGA coating.

Based on regular controls, they confirmed that the ZINGA is performing very well.

BANGOR PIER – IMMERSED PILES – IRELAND

Country: IRELAND

Project Description

ZINGA was applied on immersed piles of a pier in the Bangor
harbour. The piles were first UHP water-blasted and then gritblasted to give the correct surface profile. Then approx.
200 µm of ZINGA was applied in 4 coats by brush.
The work was executed by the contracting company
SAR Marine and General in November 2000.

Dublin Steel Home

Country: IRELAND

Project Description

This unique house was built in the suburb of Killiney in Dublin, and it overlooks the harbour. The canopies and top roof panelling are all coated with the Zinga system.

The contractors were advised to zinganise and paint all of the window frames before the glass was installed, as nothing could be done once the glass was in place.
The house has constant salt-air exposure from the sea.

Costing just over €5 million to build, and the glass alone cost €2 million due to curved sections being manufactured.

There is also interior steelwork that protrudes through to the outside, and supporting beams that are covered in timber.
In this way all of the steelwork was coated with Zinga and no cathodic/anodic areas are present anywhere in the house.

DUBLIN Irish Rail 1919 Turntable

Country: IRELAND

Built at the Inchicore main rail yards in 1919 immediately after end of WW1 for the Great Southern and Western Railway (GSWR), this railway turntable was in a sad state and the current owners IRISH RAIL decided to restore it to coincide with its 100 year anniversary.
The turntable was mounted on a circular steel track at the main works and its purpose was to turn the train around facing the opposite direction in situ… all by only a handful of men. This was possible due to the precise balancing of the structure.
Kilkenny based Total Highway Maintenance won the contract to carry out the restoration.
To restore the turntable, the entire piece had to be shot blasted to SAE 2.5. Following blasting, ZINGA was applied throughout to 60 – 80 micron DFT.
Later two coats of ZINGA ALU ZM were applied to provide a nice silvery finish.
To complete the project, walkways were fabricated and installed on both sides of the turntable.
All going well, that turntable should be around in 2119

OFFALY Electricity Generating Ireland

Country: IRELAND
High volumes of steam coming from peat being dried was resulting in a lot of corrosion of steel purlins and the roof in the drying sheds.
Replacement purlins were shot blasted and coated with ZINGA 60-80 DFT.
To finish, a mist coat plus wet coat of ZINGA TARFREE was applied to complete the anti-corrosion for this project.

DUBLIN Apartment Block

Country: IRELAND

Project Description:

Exclusive Apartment situated in Dublin’s trendy docklands.
Project called for several hundred fabricated steel posts which were designed to accommodate glass sections all around the perimeter of the building.

The posts were manufactured by Kilkenny company CDS Architectural Metalworks Limited.
They were shot blasted to SAE 2.5 by specialists Crowley Surface Coatings Ltd also based in Kilkenny.
ZINGA was applied by airless spray @ max 90 DFT.
ZINGACERAM was then applied to seal the ZINGA.
Finally two coats of PU 2k finish to customers spec were applied.
The finished project was very well received.

“In Zinc We Trust for Fighting Rust”

Project Description

In an ideal world, repairing and driving vintage and
classic vehicles would all be about tinkering relaxingly on the
odd nut and bolt, rubbing a bit of polish on the paintwork and
thinking about where to drive it for a nice Sunday lunch. But, the
reality usually comes down to one thing, and that’s the constant
battle against rust. Whether you’re replacing rusted body panels,
removing surface rust or trying to keep rust from reappearing on
your restored pride and joy, it’s all about understanding how steel
reacts to moisture, and what you can do about it

Project Description

The power station of Langerlo was built in 1976, with two units powered by fuel oil. In 1986, the power station was converted to a coal power station, due to its proximity to the coal mines located in Genk. Since mining activity in Belgium declined and ceased in 1992 with the closing of the last mine in Zolder, the power station in Langerlo remained the last one driven by coal. In 1997 and 1999 the power station was enlarged. In 1999 the fume and gas purification was expanded and 2 gas turbines were built. Today the power station has a capacity of 556 MW, driven by a mix of coal, biomass(pellets) and gas.

There was testing carried out using the system on a practice-boat, and over the following two months the painters from Aqueduct Marina had further ongoing training from the Zinga Technical Department to refine their knowledge and skills on the
checking of welds, sharp-edge radiusing, the science of blast-cleaning, stripe-coating techniques, the mist-coating of sealer-coats and so on to ensure that all of their work was done to the highest standards.
