Increased Productivity & Waste Reduction in Tank Blasting (2004-344)
- Atlantic Marine
NSRP ASE Investment: $41K
This project reflects technology transfer from industrial bridge painting contractors and equipment suppliers to the shipyards. Bridge contractors have realized the savings offered by Recyclable Ferrous Metallic Abrasive (RFMA) for many years and their equipment and process knowledge have evolved to a point where they are ready to be used in a shipyard. The project integrates the bridge industry procedures and equipment into a cost saving process for the shipyard. An electronic matrix has been developed that allows the individual shipyard to generate a shipyard specific return on investment (ROI) based on data specific to their processes and business model.
