"Cathodic protection – corrosion control for embedded/immersed structures"

In everyday practice we meet many owners of the immersed steel pipelines and tanks who doubt whether to apply cathodic protection system or not…

There’s no doubt about it!

Those without cathodic protection system change their pipelines after 4-15 years, while the pipelines of those who have CP system last well over 50 years, not to mention the savings seen as less product losses, better flow and higher work safety. There is less investing in cathodic protection system than in new repairs caused by corrosion.

When deciding on cathodic protection application, you decide on people’s safety and environmental protection. "YES" is an answer in the line with sustainable development strategies.

Contact PA-EL today so that we can put your corrosion under control as soon as tomorrow!


cathodic protection of shipsDesigning cathodic protection for subsea applications may be challenging; however, designing cathodic protection for boats that combine their routes from fresh, over brackish water all the way to the sea water is more than conventional boat CP systems. Therefore, in cooperation with Green Lido Venezia consortium, PA-EL is developing RODON 2000 cathodic protection system series for operating crafts in Lagoon of Venice. New CP system not only will replace existing practice of protection via zinc galvanic anodes, but will also contribute environment protection which is of high importance.


ice class anode_cathodic protection_platformPULA BOAT FAIR 2014 was a good opportunity for offshore cathodic protection programme presentation. Various types of anodes and reference electrodes could be seen on PA-EL’s exhibition stand. Special attention is added to ICE CLASS programme and extremely mechanically resistant ICECLASS-A10 anode.

One of the main aims is to raise the awareness of impressed current cathodic protection application benefit for steel hull boats. No anode replacement, high current capacity and controllable parameters can be underlined as main advantages.

With careful design ICCP systems can be successfully applied on aluminium hulls as well.


DCIM101GOPROExperience with project of Cathodic Protection of platform in Filanovsky oil field in North Caspian see gave us a good reason to push furthermore development of special anodes for Cathodic Protection of platforms and ships that may be subject of harsh environment and ice impacts. Therefore, PA-EL went for scale down and has built up a pool for anode testing. Pool is filled with 2 cubic meters of artificial sea water with salinity that corresponds with Filanovsky region.

Testing pool can control several parameters; current, voltage, salinity, temperature, agitation… Besides CP parameters there is also availability for testing of coatings intended for splash zone and particularly, coatings compatibility with CP protection and overprotection.

A promo video of PA-EL ICE CLASS PROGRAMME will be released soon.
