Cathodic Protection of Offshore Marine Equipment
Due to seawater’s electrically conductive properties, it represents a highly aggressive component that can quickly cause extensive damage to ships, port facilities, oil rigs, offshore wind farms and other marine and offshore equipment that is exposed to seawater.
In addition, the seawater tends to penetrate even the most inaccessible places where it can be very costly and time-consuming to repair the damage.
The use of sacrificial anodes (more often called galvanic anodes), also often called cathodic protection, protects the exposed metal of the seawater’s corrosive properties.
