Cathodic Protection by Sectors (Fuel, LPG)

Purpose of Education

It is necessary to understand naturally occurring corrosion and take precautions against it. The rate of corrosion that will occur in metallic structures in soil - water - chemical substance is reduced by "Cathodic Protection". Understanding and correct application of cathodic protection is important for both human health and economy. As a result of incorrect and/or incompletely applied cathodic protection, pipes or tanks may be punctured, explosive / flammable substances may leak into the environment. It is in our hands to prevent this situation, which is a threat to human life. It is extremely important to ensure the continuity of the cathodic protection, which is a legal obligation, by correctly applying and measuring it correctly.

Okan İşdaş was born on February 19, 1964 in Izmit. After his education at Izmit High School, he started his education at Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Chemistry and Metallurgy, Department of Metallurgical Engineering. He graduated from the faculty as a Metallurgical Engineer in 1987, and then specialized in business management at Istanbul University Institute of Business Economics.

He started his career at Kroman Çelik Sanayii A.Ş. and took a break from London City College in England to study the Foreign Trade Certificate Program. Returning to England, he worked as a sales development engineer in the field of welding gases at BOS (50% Koç Holding, 50% British Oxygen Company-BOC Joint Venture). He founded SP Mühendislik Ltd.Şti. with Cengiz Budur, whom he graduated from the Faculty of Metallurgy in 1996 and worked with at BOS.

He completed NACE CP Tester Certificate Program in the USA in 2004, NACE CP Technician Certificate Program and NACE Corrosion Technician Certificate Program in 2014.

Okan İşdaş's article named “Electochemical Corrosion Principles” was published in the Metallurgy Journal and he gave many seminars in the sector. Apart from the sector, he gave training on corrosion and cathodic protection at the Chamber of Metallurgical Engineers and Yeditepe University.

Okan İşdaş, who has done projects in Turkey and abroad, has also introduced methods that have not been applied before in Turkey, such as polymeric anode.
