LAF-1 & 2 Platforms

Single float Retrobuoy systems installed in the Gulf of Guinea.



The complete assembly and installation of the systems was accomplished onboard the barge within minutes, as it comes partially assembled in a box.

This was a hybrid retrofit solution using sacrificial and impressed-current cathodic protection at the same time. Sacrificial protection for the upper section of the jackets was carried out by the client while Deepwater designed the ICCP system to provide CP for the lower section and augment the upper section. Only a 32mV vs. Ag/AgCl reference was needed to achieve the desired potential.




The installation was achieved using an ROV. Deployment was seamlessly easy, as the cable routed quickly.

The advantages of this product include its ease of assembly, its good percentage of local content and the fact that it is ROV friendly. It can be shipped boxed, so the client/purchaser can more easily assemble and install it using the instructions provided.
