Continuous Remote Corrosion Monitoring Drives Environmental Compliance for Jetty OperationsBy Permasense
Many refineries and oil terminals are located beside major stretches of water, either sea or river, to provide an easy and cost effective transportation route for crude oil and feedstock imports and finished product exports.
Ships and barges need a certain amount of water depth to be able to safely load and unload product without danger of running aground, so most facilities use jetties to enable
the vessel to moor in deeper water. Jetties can often be several hundred metres long, with multiple berths and capable of handling many different products simultaneously.
