A number of non PRCI projects have benefitted from the samples gathered together by the TDC to advance work primarily funded by others but with direct interest to the pipeline community.
A REPSEA project testing Imaging sonar needed corroded pipeline samples for an underwater test in Florida using a Lockheed Martin Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). This work is of direct interest to PRCI members such as Chevron and Total who are directly involved in AUV developments. Externally corroded pipe characterized by the TDC was supplied to the project.
