Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP)
Corrosion has always been a major problem in industry as well as every day activities and it is responsible for capital loss and delays in production. Although application of coatings has managed to limit metal deterioration, in cases where metallic structures are either buried or immersed, cathodic protection is an absolute necessity.
Impressed Current Cathodic Protection Systems are the latest, most efficient and cost effective means of protection against corrosion. Their excellent performance in sea-water has made them the ultimate solution for hull protection. The ICCP system comprises a number of anodes, reference electrodes and a controller power unit. Reference electrodes are measuring the degree of protection rendered to the hull and the controller power unit is constantly adjusting the protective current output through anodes.
By doing so, optimum protection is being achieved at all times, regardless of environmental, coating and draft conditions. WCS has a team of experienced engineers providing services ranging from log sheet evaluation, consultation, on site servicing and system design. In addition a large stock of spare parts for all major makers is available in our Ellinikon office. Worldwide service and spare parts supply is also available, through associated companies in Europe, Middle East, Asia and America.
