Location: Seville, Spain
Services provided: Corrosivity Assessment
Description: The corrosion assessment was based on different international standards: DIN 50 929, FHWA – NGI 09-097, EN 12501-2: 2003, AWWA C-105 or DVGW GW9. With the existing geotechnical data and information available for the area of assessment, the corrosive capacity of the soil was estimated. The degree of corrosion was based on different soil parameters, such as porosity, humidity, resistivity, pH, salinity, or redox potential. Finally, the corrosivity analysis allowed us to estimate the thickness of the Zinc coating necessary to protect the metal structures against corrosion phenomena during the service life of the photovoltaic installation.
