Aquatec Group is launching a new cathodic protection system, CPguardian, at Subsea Expo 2016. CPguardian is a fully integrated system with closed loop control, which provides both impressed current cathodic protection and monitoring of the resulting protection levels in real-time. The new AQUAclamp simplifies retrofitting so the system is ideal for extending the life of ageing assets, providing a viable alternative to decommissioning.
After installation of the fixed CP monitoring units, divers and ROVs are no longer required to carry out CP inspections, therefore making the practice safer and reducing operational expenditure. As CP levels are measured at multiple points on the structure and transferred topside in real-time, operators can benefit from knowing precise protection levels in all seasons and sea states – something that is not possible with conventional surveys. With this increased knowledge, users can save money by optimising protection levels.
