NACE international is pleased to announce a new marine track for its annual conference, CORROSION/2007 to be held March 10-14, 2007, in Nashville, TN.

Highlighting the marine track will be a special International Marine Coatings Forum on Tuesday, March 12, 2006. This panel type discussion forum will bring together prominent leaders from the Marine Industry representing shipbuilders, regulatory agencies, owners, and users. This forum will examine significant issues facing marine coatings personnel such as regulatory changes and new IMO specifications. Increased commercial pressures on ships in service with regards to corrosion control; specifically ballast tanks, fouling control, and invasive specie infestation will also be addressed. An open discussion with participants will help establish industry’s response to these dramatic changes including current and future training requirements.

The marine track will begin on Sunday, March 10, 2007, with a Marine Vessel Technical Exchange that includes informal presentations and discussion related to coatings used to control corrosion on ships.

A 2-day Marine Corrosion and Transport Symposium will be held Monday and Tuesday, March 11-12, 2007, and will include technical papers on such topics as IMO’s Performance Standards for Protective Coatings (PSPC), comparison of life cycle costs of marine materials, and in-water cleaning to improve performance of anti-fouling coatings.
