The RetroPods were shipped in kit form and assembled dockside by local crews provided by CUEL. Both platforms sit in 200 feet of seawater, making this the deepest RetroPod installation yet. When divers checked CP readings after installation, the results confirmed that both structures are well-protected, including areas farthest from the RetroPods resting on the seabed.
This confirms the RetroPods’ ability to sufficiently protect structures at greater depths without need for supplemental CP. The minimum pre-retrofit CP reading at -20 feet was -0.950mV; post-retrofit, it was -0.985mV. The minimum pre-retrofit CP reading at -200 feet was -0.959mV; post-retrofit, it was -1.009mV. V-String zinc reference electrodes were attached at a depth of 150 feet using RetroClamps. The leads were run to monitoring devices mounted topside.
