The branch committee has been strengthened by some younger ICorr members, and the new committee met over the summer to discuss how best they can meet the needs of members, and developed the following mission statement.
The Branch’s mission is to promote the understanding of corrosion, its impact, and how to mitigate it, in the various industries, through community knowledge sharing and transfer. The Branch also aims to meet the needs, and provide networking opportunities, for local ICorr members and the greater engineering community in London and beyond.
Following on from this, a questionnaire was sent out to the branch members asking for their views on how we can fulfil this statement, and these are being analysed. The branch is also looking for new committee members, so if you are interested, please get in touch.
The first meeting of the 2022/2023 season will be on 13th October at the usual venue, The Lancaster Hall Hotel, Bayswater, when Anthony Setiadi, Wood Thilsted Partners, will present “Corrosion protection considerations for offshore wind foundations”. This presentation will primarily focus on monopile foundations, and the design considerations that would need to be taken onboard.
Details of future branch technical meeting can be found on the diary page of the magazine.
