Deepwater is granted Mexican patent for the CP Mat
On March 4, 2008, Deepwater Corrosion Services' pending patent for the CP Mat ( Stabilizer With Cathodic Protection) was granted. With patent number 130524.2002, the CP Mat is patented in both the US and Mexico. The CP Mat is currently undergoing extensive research and development, with the aim of including cathodic protection monitoring equipment. This new "smart" mat would allow for reliable CP in deep water, where interrogation and maintenance can only be achieved with ROVs (and in the near future AUVs).
