It is common knowledge that corrosion has become a serious challenge in most industrial sectors in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region. Over a decade ago, STARC targeted this sector as one where it could provide significant value to the industry by offering services and supplying products to address the increasing complexity of this problem. Five years ago, STARC along with its partner Corrpro Canada, established a manufacturing facility for cathodic protection materials. It is now one of the leading suppliers of such material in Saudi Arabia and the region. Corrpower, the joint venture between STARC and Corrpro, has recently been licensed to offer corrosion control consultancy services in the Kingdom.
In the last ten years, STARC has developed and expanded its expertise in pipeline solutions. It offers its clients a vast array of services and products within this sector including pipeline repair using composite material and has installed thousands of such units on numerous pipelines in Saudi Arabia. It also provides its customer with specialty pipeline coatings for the sealing and corrosion protection of pipeline joints and other substrates. It has also installed numerous specialized connectors and seals on onshore and offshore pipelines.
