Keynote Speaker 2


Staff Engineer (Corrosion Engineering)

Ku Adri Azhan Bin Ku Mohamad started his career at PETRONAS Chemicals Fertiliser Kedah Sdn Bhd (PCFKSB) as an Inspection Engineer in 2000. Prior to joining PETRONAS, he completed his Mechanical Engineering degree at the University of Missouri Rolla, USA.

 In his early years in PCFKSB, his main task is to ensure the integrity of static equipment via timely inspection & corrosion monitoring in which he also led and conducted material-related failure analysis and recommended corrective/preventive actions to prevent equipment outages and recurrence. He had shared several papers focusing on fertiliser plant equipment damage mechanisms that utilized exotic material and operated at both extreme conditions i.e., cryogenic, and high temperature. His current position as Staff Engineer for Corrosion Engineering requires him to anticipate potential problems and recommend appropriate solutions that arise at the operational level while keeping abreast with new technical approaches in tools and methods introduced by the ongoing technical advancement.

 Ku Adri is also competent as a Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) certified Steam Engineer Grade II and PCFKSB’s Special Scheme of Inspection Team Leader. He is still contributing as one of the panels for the PETRONAS Protective Coating Technical Committee (PPCTC) and DOSH-PETRONAS Petroleum (Safety Measures) Act 1984 Industry Code of Practice. He is also nominated as an Adjunct Lecturer at Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) for the Materials Engineering Program at the FKT Kimia. He had attended several technical courses with the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), American Petroleum Institute (API) and Technical Welding Institute (TWI). He is committed to developing an optimum asset integrity management program, especially for fertilizer plants, based on his previous experience with various damage mechanisms that endangered process safety and asset integrity
