RetroLink™ anode strings installed on platform
20 RetroLinks™ installed on Gulf of Mexico platform
Deepwater was contracted to provide 20 RetroLink™ anode strings to protect a four-leg, three-riser platform sitting in 148 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico. The RetroLinks™ were each 150' in length with a 15' leader.
An ag/agCI Polatrak™ DCII drop cell and multimeter were used to check pre-and-post-installation CP measurements. Readings were recorded at –10, –25 and at 25' intervals until the drop cell was resting on the bottom. Pre-installation readings showed a maximum potential of –684mV, and post-installation readings showed a maximum of –893mV.
