Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP)
An Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) system from CORROSION, which utilizes the principle of shifting the natural potential of metals, protects your vessel durably and effectively against corrosion. This ICCP system provides vessels with all-round protection, including the protection for the propulsion and rudder systems.
All the submerged metal parts of the vessel with the damage or ageing of coatings are effectively protected by our ICCP system. A clear indication of your coating’s condition will be shown on our touch screen. All data can be downloaded to an external computer and transferred by Internet for checking. System adjustments can also be made via the same procedure by uploading.
Our ICCP system offers many additional benefits compared with sacrificial anodes, such as far cheaper to operate in the long-term, almost maintenance free and long Service life (25 years). We deliver and design not only complete ICCP systems, but also sacrificial anodes and all spare parts according to your specifications.
Our system is uniquely characterized by the extensive control and steering options, and can be connected to the vessel management system. The special designed controlling program constantly processes the flows of data received from the sensors that are installed on the vessels. Together with the high-grade keramox® coated titanium anodes and the reference electrodes, the power unit ensures the correct degree of protection in any situation. Even if the electrolytic effects of water vary considerably, this system quickly adapts and continues to offer correct and optimum protections. This performance can never be achieved by the sacrificial anodes or simple paint systems.

Extra advantages of high frequency power unit
The advanced high frequency power unit is based on modular units. The most obvious advantage is when one of the modular units fails because it needs maintenance orit breaks down, the other ones will still be in operation. Furthermore, the weight and size of this new power unit are reduced tremendously.
