Although modern hull coatings can provide some protection against corrosion they seldom offer a complete solution. For this reason, most operators choose to protect their vessels with a purpose designed impressed current cathodic protection system.
The anodes are usually mounted in pairs in the ship’s sea chest or strainer where they are in direct contact with the flow of water entering the seawater lines. The anti-fouling system gives complete and continuous protection to pipework, valves and condensers as well as vital firefighting equipment, refrigeration and air conditioning unit.
