Whitepaper launch ‘Power Outage and ICCP’

Today, at the opening of the US offshore wind event of the year, IPF Business Network for Offshore Wind, we are excited to announce the launch of the white paper ‘Power Outage and ICCP’. In this paper, we provide a much-requested answer to what happens to steel structures protected by ICCP systems during a power failure.

Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems are used to protect metallic structures in offshore marine environments from corrosion. ICCP systems work with an external power source that drives current through the structure. In certain situations, the power supply to an offshore structure may be interrupted. The result is a time when there is no current flowing through the ICCP system.

This white paper describes what happens to steel structures protected by ICCP systems during prolonged interruptions to the applied current.

The paper is already available at our website for you to download https://lnkd.in/gWPzusix

Cooler installation – Part 4

Once the cooler is installed, it’s time to put the UV-C bulbs in place. A key benefit of the UV-C Cooler is that the maintenance replacement process is low. UV-C lights can be replaced within just 20 minutes or less from the inside of the vessel, without even dry-docking.

Ultraviolet light in its C spectrum is a green way of protecting the cooler against all types of marine growth. What’s more, it is highly effective in virtually all circumstances.The bulb can endure high pressure as it is mounted in a tube made of quartz – the same material used in Navy vessels.

Stay tuned for the final part!

Cooler installation – Part 3

The coolers are installed in the sea chests with an in and outlet grid. When in operation, seawater enters through the inlet grid and passes through the pillow plates.

Even when they are moored. Due to its design and the use of UV-C light, the cooler is also the perfect anti-fouling solution for vessels that are laid up for a longer period of time.
