Memory Lane

It may not be a nice round number, but that doesn’t make it any less special for us and calls for a moment to reflect on. It has been sixteen years since we developed the very first Impressed Current Cathodic Protection system, designed specifically for the offshore wind industry. This environmentally friendly ICCP system protects foundations against corrosion.

A lot has happened since then. We established our own lab and continued to innovate and improve the ICCP technology and further reduce that footprint. In addition, the system now also enables you to monitor and control the entire process from shore via SCADA.
We have expanded not only in what we do, but also geographically with successful subsidiaries everywhere from Germany and France to China and Vietnam. In 2021 we established a CORROSION team with local representatives to directly serve the offshore markets in the US and UK.
What has not changed is that our products are still manufactured to the highest quality, which is achieved by designing each system to the relevant industry and quality standards. Today, more than 3,100 of our systems are in use and provide sustainable protection around the world, making us the international market leader in protecting offshore wind foundations.
With our unique ICCP solution, we will continue to protect wind turbines against corrosion and contribute to making them as clean and sustainable as the energy they produce. Something we hope and believe the entire industry can achieve by embracing new technologies. Let’s make wind truly sustainable!

Nominated – Maritime Innovation Award 2022

We have been nominated for the Maritime Innovation Award 2022 with our UV-C Cooler! Very proud of the recognition by our peers for years of research and hard work. Resulting in this completely Dutch and environmentally friendly anti-fouling solution. CORROSION is one of three finalists. The winner will be announced on November 7 during the Maritime Awards Gala in Rotterdam.

Press Release – CORROSION’s newly designed UV-C Cooler means goodbye to dry docking

Officially launched in July 2022, CORROSION’s newly designed sustainable UV-C Cooler is already proving highly popular with large tugboat manufacturers, dredgers and a host of other maritime customers worldwide. The revolutionary design means shipping companies can now enjoy the benefits of the cooler without having to dry dock, leading to big savings in terms of time and money.

“The launch of our updated UV-C Cooler represents a huge step forward in terms of efficiency,” said Bart Wessels, Chief Commercial Officer at CORROSION. “The new design makes it possible to replace the UV-C lamps from within the vessel by using a double enclosure rather than having to dry dock. The simple process can be undertaken in less than 20 minutes per cooler, making it quicker and more efficient than other anti-fouling solutions in the market.”

The UV-C Cooler’s newly designed coolers feature pillow-plates at an angle. This stimulates the natural convection, maintains hot spots from forming between the plates, and prevents debris and other sediment from settling on the plates.”

“What’s more, by staying clean and free from fouling, engines continue to perform at an optimum level,” added Bart. “Less CO2 is therefore released, meaning CORROSION’S UV-C Coolers are a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution than alternative systems.”

The newly designed cooler will be presented at the SMM exhibition in Hamburg for the first time. Interested parties are cordially invited to our stand 125 in hall A1 from September 6-9 in the Hamburg Messe. CORROSION representatives will be happy to provide further information and details regarding this exciting new design at the exhibition or through the contact information given below.
