Retropod

Cathodic protection anode replacement for subsea equipment and platforms

DIVER INSTALLATION

Low-profile Retropod for environments with strong currents

Our traditional Retropod works well where there are not strong currents, such as when it’s used for subsea production equipment, deep-water flow lines and for platforms in calm water environments like the Gulf of Thailand, the Red Sea and at certain depths in the Gulf of Mexico. As an alternative for shallow-water locations with

strong currents that could pose a risk of tipping, such as those found in depths between 110 and 200 feet in the Gulf of Mexico, Deepwater offers the Retropod Low Profile. It features anodes identical to those on the taller pods, only arrayed in a horizontal configuration that’s more stable in high-current environments.
