As part of an oil and gas project, Woodside Energy, a service provider to the oil and gas industry, will rely on a Titomic D523 System to combat corrosion in the Indian Ocean, near Karratha, Western Australia.

According to OEM Titomic, this would be the first on-site application of its cold spray technology in the Australian oil and gas industry. The System will be used to deposit corrosion-resistant materials like aluminum directly onto steel and other metals without heat and without structure disassembly, Titomic explains.

The research team from the Woodside FutureLab at Monash University has pinpointed applications of Titomic’s cold spray process for effective corrosion remediation and prevention. This would support advancements in the real-world implementation for corrosion resistance and repair applications in the oil and gas industry.

Given the remote nature of much of the oil and gas industry making on-site repairs and limited disassembly, the success of the project would make Titomic low-pressure cold spray system an ideal solution from a cost and time efficiency perspective.

This order will be structured as a lease agreement. This Lease will generate at least AUD 50,000 in revenue for Titomic within the next 12 months, a press communication reads.
