Through its parent company Stork Technical Services, iicorr and its specialist subsea division, Subspection, have developed an innovative new design of anode that can be readily field deployed and withstand the demands of the offshore environment.
This alternative solution provides a means to replace depleted or damaged systems without the need for more costly dry dock or diving and remotely operated vehicle intervention.
SODA-node (Self Orienting Directional Anode) has been developed for offshore applications such as floating production storage and offloading vessels, floating storage offloading vessels and other similar structures in seawater.
Subspection General Manager Gordon McKinnell said “SODA-node is an excellent addition to the range of cathodic protection services we provide for our customer base who are concerned with structural integrity. Our research and development is focused on technology that can extend the life of our clients’ assets with specific focus on designing and developing products for the subsea sector.”
