Commander Adil Mohideen, Joint Director, Naval Architecture, Indian Navy in conversation with Debarati Das of Chemical Today TV, during Corrosion Technology Forum 2018 in Bangalore (7th & 8th June).

Key corrosion issues in a naval vessel

A naval vessel carries several advanced, state of the art equipment and weapons. These vessels also operate in the harshest environment - ie. seawater and hence corrosion is the most important aspect that we deal with. Major areas of the ship are exposed to seawater. Hence, we need anti-corrosion solutions which will help us spend minimal time on maintenance and give maximum time for the ship to perform its main role, that is the combat activities. For this, we need the right kind of coatings which can deal with various corrosion issues.

Solutions needed to address the issue

There are various anti-corrosive solutions that the Navy is using today to mitigate the overall corrosion issues. However, there are certain specific corrosion issues which we are unable to tackle and hence require better solutions from the industry. Also, the coatings that we use today address the corrosion issues in sea vessels for two to three years after which the ship has to be taken out of operation for maintenance activities. We expect more sustainable coatings that will last five to ten years to ensure maximum availability of the vessel at sea.

About Corrosion Technology Forum 2018

I am happy to come here and attend the forum. This platform gave me the scope for discussions with key industry players, put forward the corrosion issues faced by the Indian Navy and place our requirements to mitigate these issues. I am looking forward to getting solutions to address the Indian Navy’s corrosion issues through this event.
