CESCOR provides underwater cathodic protection inspections, including instrumentation to be installed on ROVs or handled by divers – probes, electronics, software – and EN 15257 certified personnel for the execution of inspection. Applicable techniques include:
- Close-to-remote potential profile (proximity)
- Potential gradient profile (field gradient)
- Trailing wire.
These methods, properly combined, allow to assess the protection level of the structure and to detect coating faults.
Typical inspected structures are:
- Subsea pipelines – open sea and shore approaches
- Offshore platforms
- FPSO and SPM.
- Piers and marine terminals.
The provided services include the issue of the Inspection Specifications and of the Inspection Report. Where deemed convenient, inspection results are interpreted using FEM modeling.
