    Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC) conference

    News // January 18, 2002
    A new conference and exhibition, Accelerated Low Water Corrosion (ALWC) - A new phenomenon?, will take place 23-24 April 2002, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    Accelerated low water corrosion (ALWC) is a form of corrosion that can occur on inshore, tidal, marine, steel piled structures at or around the low water level.

    Port Authorities and berth owners worldwide are becoming increasingly concerned about concentrated corrosion on marine steel piles, and a cultural change is now underway as to how these structures are viewed, as the consequences can be serious and oftenrequire costly remedial repair works at an early stage in a structure's life and can pose port executives and facilities managers with unexpected engineering and financial challenges.

    The conference is being organised by Millennium Conferences International, who say that it will provide an international forum for discussion of ALWC and will be of considerable benefit to port authorities, terminal operators, consulting engineers, government bodies, berth owners, consultants, universities, laboratories, companies involved in port construction and dredging and manufacturers and suppliers of sheet piling.

    The conference will highlight technical issues, implications, discovery, remedy and repair of ALWC. The event offers a rare opportunity - in an informal and congenial atmosphere - to establish and develop contacts for the exchange of ideas, information,discussion and experience.

    Organisations can enhance and raise their profile by taking a leading role at the event by sponsoring various events and conference material. The conference will be supported by an exhibition, which will be an excellent marketing opportunity and will also provide you with a meeting place to discuss your services with new and existing clients.
