Cathodic Protection Clamping System
in conjunction with Deepwater Corrosion Inc.
A simplified subsea cathodic protection attachment solution
for pipelines and other subsea structures.
RetroClamp CP puts the fix where it is needed – quickly & effectively.
RetroClamp CP is a simple modification to the RetroClamp diver & ROV friendly tie-back clamping system. RetroClamp CP allows attachment of anodes directly to the clamp at the pipeline or metal structure. Now an ROV or diver can quickly install retrofit anodes to a subsea pipeline or other tubular section to add local cathodic protection in an optimized and predictable manner. This solution has evolved based on previous project fixes designed and supplied by Deepwater on an ad hoc basis.
RetroClamp CP provides a simple effective solution to localized damage to offshore pipelines, or can provide retrofit to a whole pipeline system if there is a reason why the SmartMat option is not preferred. It provides a perfect fix for damaged field joints, or localized coating damage on pipelines. I can also provide a fix for deepwater mooring components or subsea production equipment.
The anodes can be added to any RetroClamp. Each anode has a net weight of 15 lb (7 Kg) and is cast from either Deep 7 or Deep 10 Aluminum Alloy. Anodes are added in pairs (30 lb) increments to maintain balance and load distribution.
Anodes fit all clamp sizes and are always available
in stock, as are most standard clamp sizes.
