National Facility for Pipeline Coating Assessment
The National Facility for Pipeline Coating Assessment (NFPCA) brings together an independent facility for companies to test and evaluate pipeline coatings with a capability to support innovative research into coating performance.
The facility was established in 2014 at Deakin University in partnership with the Energy Pipelines CRC and industry partners. This facility fills an important need for the Australian pipeline industry as it is the only independent commercial pipeline coating testing facility in Australia.
The NFPCA is of great value to local industry as pipeline coatings are the primary method of protecting buried pipelines against corrosion and costly pipeline failure. The ability to select, assess and independently verify pipeline coatings is key to their success in service.
