Effective October 2017, Endures B.V. of Den Helder, The Netherlands, is joining efforts with Petersen Coatings of Murcia, Spain, to increase Endures’ offerings to the international protective coating and corrosion control markets.

John Petersen, Owner of Petersen Consulting, brings over 30 years of marine and off-shore coating inspections, assessments, and failure analysis to Endures’ extensive asset protection and laboratory services. Specifically, Petersen has been tasked with enlarging Endures’ global footprint in vessel and marine structure condition assessment along with product performance testing of antifouling and steel preservation coatings.

 

Working in the field and with Endures’ state-of-the-art laboratory, Petersen will provide asset owners an objective means of determining current and expected life conditions of coating systems. His responsibilities include working with leading-edge diagnostic tools, such as Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and Endures’ extensive background in the areas of coating life expectancy and product performance. He will also promote Endures’ comprehensive laboratory tools for failure analysis, antifouling performance testing and for its expertise in identifying microorganisms responsible for Microbial Induced Corrosion.

Says Buter, Managing Director Endures, “I have long admired the work of John Petersen as a top international consultant, and I’m delighted to have him collaborate with Team Endures as a valuable company asset.”
