CathSense® ICCP for harbours
CathSense® ICCP system with high output capacity, perfectly adapted to corrosion protection of harbours.
CathSense® ICCP material package
CathSense® ICCP system has the ability to cathodically protect virtually any kind of underwater harbour structures, regardless of size and coating condition.
The CathSense® control panel can be connected to any kind of ICCP anodes and reference electrodes, and includes the following features:
- High efficiency
- Flexible system with expandable output effect
- User-friendly operation
- Automatic logging
- Prepared for remote control and monitoring
Different ICCP anodes may be used for harbour protection. Most commonly used are MMO/Ti rod and FeSi rod anodes. See the full range of ICCP products.
CathSense® – designed to fit future demands for harbour systems
MasterCath® – remote access software
MasterCath® works by pairing a remote computer with CathSense® ICCP control panels installed for harbours.
The software provides an intuitive dashboard with real time operational values, alarm detection and several other useful features.

Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems have the benefit of an external power source to impose protective current. This makes it possible to protect any submerged structure, regardless of size and current requirement, by using long life anodes and appropriately sized power supplies. You may also want to read about design of corrosion protection for harbours.
The most important feature of an ICCP system is the ability to continuously monitor the level of protection and adapt to the current required to stop corrosion. Learn more about the principles of cathodic protection.

Anodes on sea bottom
Anodes installed at the sea bottom with some distance from the steel will ensure good and even current distribution to the entire steel surface with relatively few anodes. By this, the risk for interference with ships alongside will increase, and hence, this system is applicable where there a few and short ships call.
Anodes on sheet pile
Anodes can be designed for installation on the sheet piles where required. Such design will require higher number of anodes in order to obtain sufficient current distribution. In order to improve the cathodic protection current distribution, the anodes are installed in anode holder, preventing the current to flow directly into the steel at the anode location. This designed is applicable where ships stay alongside for longer periods.
The reference cell is designed for installation directly on the sheet piles. Reference cells should be located with some distance from the anodes in order to gain correct measurements.
