NE Branch News

Our North-East Branch relaunched with a very well attended Event at the Institute of Mining Building on 15 December which was greatly enjoyed by all.

Many thanks are due to the New NE Branch committee, and we look forward to their June 22/2  2023 Conference – “Integrity Engineering for a Sustainable Future”. Contact:

The ICorr Sustainability Conference is a 1 day technical event split into four sessions on 22 June 2023.

Each session has a chair to facilitate and lead a panel discussion at the end of the morning and at the end of the day. There will be a conference dinner in Newcastle in the evening with the option for delegates to join a site visit the following morning 23 June 2023.

Possible site visits include:

  1. ORE CATAPULT – Offshore renewable energy test and research centre The UK’s leading technology innovation and research centre for offshore renewable energy that will play a key role in delivering net zero targets by accelerating the creation and growth of UK companies in the offshore renewable energy sector.
  2. BATES COLLIERY – pumping station, which is an excellent example of re-purposing, which dissipates 5 MW of heat for reuse.

The Institute of Corrosion has changed in many ways since our Foundation in 1959.  Our NE Branch is part of that expansion

What has not changed is the dedication of its members to the cause and work of ICorr, which is operated almost exclusively operated by Volunteers.  We have grown recently to nearly 1600 Members with an active Overseas involvement in our Online Technical Programmes.
