PROJECT: EIRIK RAUDE – ICCP RETROFIT
CLIENT: OCEAN RIG
In addition to routine operations during its SPS class renewal such as valve overhaul, thruster replacements and UWILD inspections, the Rig required to install a new cathodic protection system.
Otech Marine Services was awarded the turn key project for the current sacrificial anode system to be replaced by a new Cathelco Impressed Current Cathodic Protection System. Initiating planning and procurement months prior to the planned mobilization date allowed for engineering and ICCP hardware to undergo a full-scale test as well as obtaining approvals from Class society for the scope of work.
Electrical and piping works was performed during the transit of the vessel from Africa and once in location the final installation works including cofferdam installations, cutting of hull penetrations from inside ballast tanks and installation of the new cofferdams, anodes and control system was done. The project was completed before schedule in 24 days.
