CathSense® ICCP in rough conditions
Polar Pevek is an icebreaker operating in rough conditions outside Sakhalin island in the Okhotsk and Bering sea. The vessel is equipped with CathSense® ICCP hull protection and CathFlow®antifouling system.
The effects of breaking ice can be extremely destructive to the hull coating system and the ICCP anodes and reference cells. Ice abrasion may result in severe coating breakdown, hence, the ICCP system is designed with increased capacity to allow for up to 35 % coating damage.
The CathSense® ICCP system has proven to be strong and durable without any need for material renewal after 13 years in operation.
