Applications

Complete systems 

 

We design and manufacture the components considering the location and

installation environment as well as the operational conditions prevailing for your specific application. 

The protected objects are commonly found in power plants, process industry, infrastructure and the oil- and gas sector.

Power Generation

 

Historically, our most frequent type of projects has been consisting of applications in power plants. A significant part of our product development, quality management and document handling is shaped by this fact.

When seawater is used as cooling water, several parts of a power plant will be exposed to favourable conditions for corrosion. Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) is a cost-efficient way to handle that.

Process Industry

 

Process industries such as desalination plants, chemical industry, pulp and paper industry and many more - they all have several applications in common with power plants. Submerged steel structures, pumps, water channels and condensers, to name a few examples.

 

Cathodic protection helps to maximize uptime and reduce maintenance.

Oil & Gas

 

Applications in the oil and gas sector may be divided into

- Field surveys

- Storage tanks

- Buried pipelines

Infrastructure

and Buildings

 

The most common application examples involve steel in concrete (rebars), and steel sheet piles. Cathodic protection systems help to extend the life spans for bridges, tunnels, buildings, harbours, jetties and even airports.
