Welcome to the CORROSION laboratory

We are excited to re-introduce our in-house laboratory. The past year has seen a number of interesting developments. Including some personnel changes.

One of these developments is that the laboratory is increasingly better equipped for external assignments and is increasingly collaborating with external parties for various forms of research into corrosion and fouling.

The CORROSION laboratory remains an arena for applied science. We strive to be the bridge between academic knowledge and the superintendence of a ship. Science for the real world.

Take a look around and let them show you what they have to offer. You can also contact our laboratory directly for all your corrosion and fouling questions via laboratory@corrosion.nl or via +31 (0)70 593 1295

Press Release – CORROSION introduces new revolutionary ICCP anode design for XX(X)L foundations

With this innovation, CORROSION responds to the developments in the market, the increasingly challenging weather conditions, and the need to protect increasingly larger foundations, also known as the XX(X)L monopiles, in an environmentally friendly way.

The newly designed sustainable Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) anode is already proving very effective on offshore turbine foundations worldwide. CORROSION’s new ‘slim fit’ anode design delivers the same quality and reliability as the current ICCP system, but is more efficient, versatile, and future proof.

“The launch of our new ICCP anode design represents a huge step forward in efficiency,” says Niels Ros, Manager Offshore Wind at CORROSION. “The anode head is more powerful and can therefore ‘impress’ more current. This makes it possible to protect the largest monopiles and reduce the amount of coating on monopiles to no coating at all.”

“In addition, this design offers a unique and new installation option. Besides to mounting on a TP and boat landing ladder, this anode can also be installed on the foundation itself. Which leads to big savings in time and money.”

The new anode design will be presented at the Wind Europe exhibition in Copenhagen for the first time. Interested parties are cordially invited to our stand C1-C36 from April 25-27. 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.

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!
