NACE-Port Harcourt Section was established in 1998. The association serves as the umbrella organization for all corrosion professioners within the region. It has more than 150 members and is committed to creating awareness about control of corrosion in South- East and South-South states of Nigeria (covering ten states) with Port Harcourt as head office, which is considered to be one of the largest industrial cities in Nigeria. It has been very active over the years, organizing quarterly technical exchange meetings, carrying out NACE accredited courses e.g. CIP1, CIP 2 and CP level 2.
The section provides a springboard for great networking opportunities with valuable platforms for exchange of ideas and useful technical information between its members. NACE-Port Harcourt supports such networking efforts which enhances the service life of plants, structures and technical information on corrosion control technology in higher institutions of learning located within the zone.
