I heard the stainless steel tubes (supplied by ThyssenKrupp it seams) around the mechanical floors have started rusting and corroding very badly above the 18th level, especially on the sea-facing side. A friend saw pictures of them. They (Emaar) are in talks to use the Electropolishing method to clean and "seal" the metal.

There is high salinity levels on the (also high) humidity in Dubai, and protecting exposed metal, even if stainless steel or coated one, is a real challenge. Though, I'm surprised they didn't do that priory to install. A sloppy job by the project manager (Turner), the consultant (Hyder), or a cost-cutting move authorized by Emaar at the time?

I'm not sure who the photographer is, or if it is previously posted:
