Cathelco has received an order from Saipem Energy Services SpA for ICCP equipment to protect an oil tanker which is being converted into an FPSO for use in the Aquila Oil Field off Brindisi, Italy.
After conversion, the FPSO will be operated by ENI SpA and will have a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels and a production capacity of 12,000 barrels per day.
The equipment supplied by Cathelco will provide the vessel with a 150 amp forward ICCP system and a 300 amp aft system. The forward system will utilize two 75 amp linear loop anodes and an arrangement of reference electrodes connected to a control panel, while the aft system will use four anodes.
In addition to providing corrosion protection for the hull over a 20 year period, the Cathelco system will also protect the rudder, propeller and mooring chains.
