Serving over 40 countries, MATCOR has a global reputation for providing exceptional corrosion prevention solutions – even in some of the world’s most harsh and difficult environmental conditions.
MATCOR’s Global Reach
MATCOR delivers its corrosion solutions to international markets in two ways:
- Through direct material sales of MATCOR proprietary Products
- Through execution of its Services
MATCOR offers a full array of individual corrosion prevention services and can also deliver turnkey solutions outside the USA. MATCOR can design cathodic protection systems for any country and can mobilize from the USA to provide installation supervision and monitoring. MATCOR India is building a full-service team of engineers and technicians based in Ahmedabad to deliver local, turnkey solutions to the Indian market and selected Middle Eastern and Asian markets.
Examples of recent MATCOR International projects:
Nigeria, Lagos – MATCOR MANUFACTURED LINEAR ANODES FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION ABOVE GROUND STORAGE TANKS
MATCOR provided design engineering and materials for the impressed current cathodic protection system using MATCOR manufactured linear anodes with factory connected tail cables for 155 new construction above ground storage tanks. MATCOR supplied 175,000 meters of linear anode for this project. (Tank Ring Anode System).
Kuwait – HDD CP RETROFIT FOR EXISTING CRITICAL SERVICE ABOVE GROUND STORAGE TANK
MATCOR provided design engineering, materials, installation testing and commissioning for the retrofit installation of a replaceable linear anode-based impressed current cathodic protection for a critical service double wall AST in Kuwait. This critical service tank could not be taken out of service, and the existing cathodic protection system consisting of discreet anodes around the perimeter of the tank proved ineffective in meeting NACE criteria for cathodic protection. Utilizing Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) to bore under the tank offered the opportunity to install directly below the tank linear anodes and a portable reference electrode profile tube while remaining in service. This novel approach to installing cathodic protection on existing tanks offers several critical benefits, but had not previously been attempted in the Middle East region. (Tank Ring Anode System).
Mexico – MATCOR TANK RING ANODE SYSTEM FOR 13 NEW CONSTRUCTION ABOVE GROUND STORAGE TANKS
MATCOR provided design engineering and materials for the impressed current cathodic protection system using MATCOR manufactured tank ring anode system for 13 new construction above ground storage tanks in Mexico. MATCOR’s unique SPL-Anode system with patented Kynex® technology is manufactured in concentric rings in the USA and ready for installation on a specific tank. (Tank Ring Anode System).
Saint Vincents Island, Saint Vincents and the Grenadines – CATHODIC PROTECTION DESIGN EVALUATION
MATCOR performed a cathodic protection design evaluation for the San Vincents Fuel Distribution Plant located in the Caribbean. The plant’s cathodic protection requirements included isolated buried piping to be protected by galvanic anodes, and above ground storage tank bottoms to be protected by shallow mixed metal oxide canister anodes ( MMP™-Anodes).
Surabaya, Indonesia – MARINE PILING IMPRESSED CURRENT CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEM
MATCOR provided design engineering, materials, installation supervision and commissioning and testing services for a large jetty for one of Asia’s largest agribusiness companies. The project utilized six marine sled anodes to protect approximately 250 metallic piles ( Sea-Bottom Anode™).
Deveselu, Romania – PLANT PIPING AND FACILITIES
MATCOR designed and provided cathodic protection for the fire water piping and water storage tanks at this missile defense facility in Romania. Scope of work included design services, installation supervision and commissioning and testing of galvanic and impressed current anode systems ( PF™-Anode).
Angola LNG, Soyo, Angola – PLANT FACILITIES
MATCOR developed the cathodic protection system design for this large LNG facility in Angola including galvanic anodes for the marine jetty, buried piping and potable and raw water tanks and an impressed current water tank anode system for the fire water tank. In addition to providing the design and materials, MATCOR provided startup and commissioning services for the facility in Angola. (Tank Ring Anode System).
DeKastri Crude Oil Export Terminal, DeKastri Russia – LINEAR ANODE TURNKEY PROJECT
MATCOR provided a turnkey installation using linear anodes to protect plant piping at the DeKastri crude oil terminal for ExxonMobil Neftegas including the design, installation using a local Russian partner, and commissioning and testing for one of Asia’s largest crude oil export facilities located on mainland Russia across from Sakhalin Island. (SPL™-FBR Anode).
Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada – TURNKEY DEEP ANODE SYSTEMS
MATCOR completed a turnkey installation of 3 deep anode systems to protect gathering system piping for an oil production field in Alberta, Canada. MATCOR provided materials and installation services for these 300 foot deep anode systems. (Durammo® Deep Anode System).
MATCOR is committed to solving corrosion problems and growing our presence worldwide.
MATCOR’s worldwide headquarters and ISO 9001:2015 manufacturing facility are located in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, USA.
