CathSense® ICCP for wind turbine foundations

CathSense® ICCP system is designed to give predictable corrosion protection and low maintenance cost for 15-25 years.

CathSense® ICCP material package

CathSense® ICCP has the ability to cathodically protect the external submerged area of the foundation of virtually any wind turbine, regardless of size and coating condition.

The CathSense® ICCP package consists of control panel in cabinet, and ICCP anodes and reference cells with cofferdams.

Disc anodes and reference electrodes are mounted in specially adapted cofferdams, welded below the water line. See the full range of ICCP products.

CathSense® –  designed to fit future demands of offshore wind turbines

MasterCath® – remote access software

MasterCath® works by pairing a remote computer with CathSense® ICCP control panels onboard the vessel.

The software provides an intuitive dashboard with realtime operational values, alarm detection and several other useful features.

ICCP explained

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. An important feature of ICCP systems is the ability to continuously monitor the level of protection and adapt to the current required to avoid corrosion.

Protection against internal corrosion

Coatings and/or galvanic anodes are considered as viable solutions for corrosion protection of monopile foundations internally. See sacrificial anodes for wind turbine foundations for more information.
