Effects of Sea water on offshore containers

Hi Everyone,

I believe we are aware on the rusting effect of sea water on containers. I would love to know if there are new and better methods of maintaining these units. 

It seems the conventional method we use at our base is not enough. When these units come back to base after a while of being offshore, they come back looking rusted. We wash the units, buff out the rusts, apply red oxide, repaint with marine paints and send them back offshore.

The challenge is this, when these units come back to base, they come back looking bad still. Like the manufacturers paint job was even better.

Can anyone please advice on better methods and procedures (SOPs if any). I am open to learning.

NB: Would attach pics based on responses.
