Kotug is a leading towing company offering its services to ports and terminals worldwide. In March 2016, tug Adriaan, the oldest tug in Kotug’s fleet and one of the first tugs the company operated in the 1950s, was docked at Padmos Yard, Netherlands. nC Corrosion Passivation was one of the favorite applications during this docking, as this technique has proven itself aboard the Adriaan since the first application of Corrosion Passivator in 2011.
Because the Adriaan was in need of steel renewal in several areas of the hull, there was an opportunity to stop and prevent corrosion in hard-to-reach places in the stern. Kotug’s project manager chose corrosion passivation with nC Corrosion Passivator. We applied the corrosion passivator to inside hull of tug Adriaan.
