The project consisted of surface preparation of the existing galvanized steel of the cavern elevator’s shaft. Prior to the arrival of IIG inspectors, de-leading of the structure was performed. Multiple surface preparation methods were then employed to achieve an SSPC SP11 prior to coating application. inspections were accessed by spider baskets from ground level down to approximately 800′ below the surface.
