Once thought to be permanent structures free from maintenance and reliability concerns, steel towers and poles have demonstrated that they do indeed degrade over time as a result of corrosion and mechanical damage. Age alone is not an accurate predictor of which structures may be experiencing corrosion. There are a number of factors that can cause corrosion or affect the rate at which a structure corrodes.
As a turnkey solution provider, Osmose can assist utilities with every aspect of implementing a steel infrastructure maintenance program. We offer the industry expertise to develop effective corrosion and concrete programs, the engineering resources to design complex restoration solutions, and the field labor to thoroughly assess structures and install repairs, cathodic protection, and protective coatings.
