The May meeting of the Young Engineers programme was held at the CB&I offices in London on the 16th May. The topic was coatings which was presented by David Mobbs and was warmly received by the enthusiastic audience. The presentation covered the high priority areas of coating including the requirement to qualify products to standards, the standards and what they mean, the testing methods required to achieve this qualification, and also looked at some case histories of coating applications good and bad.
Prior to the presentation the case study for the programme was presented to the delegates by Richard Carroll of Shell, who highlighted the importance of working together in the teams to deliver the required information as detailed in the document. In a change to previous years there will be only one case study for all the teams with each team giving a presentation in a competition to be delivered at the November ICorr London branch meeting.
This year the case study covers a number of areas in which the students are being trained including, materials, coatings, CP, failures, and the management of change. The mentors this year are John Boran, Rob Doggert and Chris Googan, and the teams will meet their mentors in the coming weeks to get started on the case study. A Linkedin page and drop box, have been set up for the teams to help them with this process.
The next meeting on Painting, Fire Protection and Linings will take place on the 29th June again being held at CB&I offices on London.
Again we would like to thank our hosts CB&I especially Sadegh Parvisi for organising the venue, our sponsors BP and our speakers, organising committee and delegates without whom we would not be able to stage this event.
Case Study Presentation – Update Bulletin 2
This bulletin presents updating information regarding the case study presentation evening, Thursday 12th of November 2020. for the benefit of all participants in the evening.
The Young Engineers are currently working in 7 teams on the case study. On the evening of 12th November each team will be asked present their findings from the case study. The teams will need to demonstrate team work however the mechanism of delivery is up to each team and their mentors.

Each presentation will start at the allocated time. The presentation is expected to last for 20 minutes. There is then five minutes for questions. The team will step down when the Chair closes that part of the session (at 25 minutes), that team can then remain in the meeting with video and audio muted to listen to all subsequent deliveries.
