Anodes for the cathodic protection of industrial steel structures such as pipelines, underground storage tanks, above ground storage tanks, locks, dams, offshore platforms and water boxes are marketed under the LIDA® brand name.
All offshore structures, platforms and pipelines require a comprehensive, on-going plan to mitigate the corrosion caused by the seawater environment. Over time and as the structures age the legacy cathodic protection systems require refurbushment in order to extend the useful life of the structure. This life extension requirement can range from 5 to 20 years. A cathodic protection system such as the LIDA TSA® (Tensioned String Anode) is comprised of mixed metal oxide anodes that can be specifically designed to deliver the performance needed to extend the life of any offshore structure.
