Off-shore welding often suffers severe corrosion both because of the saline spray environment and crevices where the salt solution along with activity generated pollutants can collect in an oxygen starved atmosphere. Maybe you can study methods to minimise this. Weldments will have a different metallurgy from the welded components, which can lead to some galvanic corrosion effects also. You can check out some of these publications:
