Nova Coating Inspection

nova scotia coating inspectors

Nova Scotia is a province located on the eastern coast of Canada. Its industrial and energy sector is diverse, with various industries contributing to the economy. The energy sector in Nova Scotia is undergoing a significant transformation as the province shifts toward more sustainable and renewable energy sources.

The traditional industries in Nova Scotia, such as fishing and forestry, remain crucial contributors to the economy. The fishing industry is one of the largest employers in the province, with lobster, scallops, and other seafood being the primary catch. Forestry, on the other hand, is focused on sustainable practices, with the province aiming to become a leader in the production of sustainably sourced lumber.

Nova Scotia’s energy sector is also diversified, with a mix of traditional and renewable energy sources. The province has a long history of coal mining and was once the largest coal-producing province in Canada. However, the use of coal for energy production has been declining in recent years due to its high greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, the province is transitioning toward cleaner energy sources, such as natural gas, wind, and tidal power.

Nova Scotia’s offshore natural gas reserves are a significant contributor to the energy sector. The Sable Offshore Energy Project, located off the coast of Nova Scotia, produces natural gas that is used to generate electricity for the province and is exported to the United States. The project is a joint venture between several companies, including ExxonMobil, Shell, and BP.

Renewable energy sources are also becoming increasingly important in Nova Scotia’s energy mix. The province has set a target to generate 40% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Wind energy is the largest renewable energy source in the province, with several wind farms in operation. Nova Scotia is also home to the world’s first tidal energy project, the Annapolis Royal Generating Station, which harnesses the power of the Bay of Fundy’s powerful tides.

In addition to traditional industries and energy sources, Nova Scotia has a growing technology sector, with a particular focus on ocean technology. The province’s location on the Atlantic coast provides a unique opportunity to develop and test ocean-related technologies. The sector includes companies focused on marine biotechnology, ocean mapping, and underwater robotics.

The  industrial and energy sector of Nova Scotia is diverse, with a mix of traditional industries and renewable energy sources. The province’s energy sector is transitioning toward cleaner energy sources, such as natural gas, wind, and tidal power, while its technology sector is focused on ocean-related industries. The province’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy sources bodes well for its long-term economic and environmental future.

Our process

our coating inspection process

We have a tried and true methodology for assessing and prevention corrosion through our ISO-standardized and client-customized workflow.



A maintenance survey determines the coating conditions of a surface. Surveys are used to create a maintenance schedule for re-coating and touch-up applications.



The Coating Inspector performs testing for a wide range of coating applications. We test for conformity, compatibility, performance, coat thickness, hardness, adhesion, and finishes.



Once testing has been completed, we provide our detailed recommendations in a report. This ensures that all aspects of the survey are considered and addressed.


Coating Specifications

All jobs are conducted according to industry standards: NACE/AMPP, ISO 9001:2015 and CSA/SSPC in Canada, ASTM and ISO for international clients.

What is an ISO Certification?

“Certification to ISO 45001 demonstrates an organisations commitment to a safer working environment and the protection of employees against injury at work.

ISO 45001 certified organisations have identified and operate to regulatory requirements through enforcing procedures for compliance with legislation. Improved identification of hazards and risk management, involving all levels of the organisation through setting objectives, targets and documented responsibilities are recognised by regulators as a commitment to safe working conditions and continuous improvement.”

We have been certified in continuous improvement and service to our compliance.

We are commited to impeccable client service & employee safety.


The AMPP (Formerly know as The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE)) is a globally recognized certification body to certify and train corrosion engineers.

With over 36,000 members globally, it is the most recognized trade association of corrosion inspectors to ensure industry standards in the coating inspection industry.

Established in 1943, it serves to train corrosion inspectors, enforce industry standards, certify engineers, publish and research corrosion inspection techniques and journals, as well as provide a standardized approach to corrosion inspection and prevention.

NACE “equips society to protect people, assets and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion.”

Every project, business and industrial assets are unique. Depending on the scope of work, location and amount of inspectors or work hours required for your project, the cost can vary. 

However, The Coating Inspector is committed to saving your business time, money and assets. The cost of equipment breakdown, shutdown or repair delays can cost your business far more resources than preventative maintenance, work and inspection.

Call, email or contact us via the form below with a bit more of information about your business. From there we’ll consult with you regarding your unique corrosion prevention requirements. 

From there we’ll provide you a comprehensive quote and scope of work, and then begin working together with you to keep your facility and equipment in top working area.
