Cathodic Protection

TechnoCorr’s NACE accredited Cathodic Protection, Corrosion& Coating specialists works together to fight against corrosion, which is a common industrial threat that can lead to untoward incidents and even catastrophic failure of assets.

The mission of Cathodic Protection Division is to support and promote the use of CP technology and products for oil & gas, petroleum, marine, water and utility industrial applications.

The CP division review and develop tailor made CP system based on the client specifications and internationally recognised standards. Cathodic protection division also provides guidance and standards to clients for the design of suitable corrosion control method like galvanic anode, impressed current anode OR a combination of both depending on the surrounding environment. This division also carries out investigative surveys and detail troubleshooting of installed CP system along with closed monitoring & maintenance.

Finally, the CP division provides free advice toclients on issues relating to quality, production, safety and importanceof corrosion control techniques for both upstream and downstream applications.

Turnkey Cathodic Protection Projects

We have over 30 years of unsurpassed knowledge and experience in cathodic protection and corrosion prevention products. Our team of experts in India, together with an extensive group of affiliates in other parts of the world provides:

  • Field Survey
  • Design
  • Installation
  • Supervision
  • Commissioning
  • Monitoring & Maintenance
  • Consultancy and Specialist advice

Our approach is based on meeting the specific needs of EPC contractors who are executing cathodic protection packages as part of a major project. As an experienced cathodic protection company that is approved by most of the major operators, we are strongly positioned to work with EPC contractors to validate their cathodic protection system designs. This can be done as part of a tendering process and then the agreed scope can be executed under suitable commercial terms.

Seamless Integration

Corrosion control engineering is a critical aspect to maintaining the service life of investments in assets such as well casings, refinery, storage facility, transporting pipelines or a port. Therefore, it is important that corrosion prevention mechanisms, systems and programs are deployed in time.

We provide corrosion advisory services. This typically encompasses evaluation of existing corrosion mitigation strategies or the development of these strategies. We offer services where we can write up new performance specifications for corrosion protection. We can investigate and advise on issues effecting overall durability of structures such as cross country/city gas pipelines, storage tanks, well casing, reinforced concrete and other industrial assets.

We are acutely aware of the design and schedule issues around the integration of a cathodic protection package into an EPC project. Once we are awarded a project, we adopt a rigorous design and project management approach while working closely with the EPC contractor to ensure that the cathodic protection system is successfully integrated into the client's overall project.

Fast Track Accurate Execution

Our expertise in cathodic protection system design, strong supplier relationships and in-house manufacturing capability means that the delivery period for critical equipment is reduced. As a result, the design of both the cathodic protection system and the overall plant can be much further developed before material orders are confirmed. This reduces errors in construction and improves operational integrity.

TechnoCorr is committed to providing cost-effective service designed to ensure our customers receive the correct products, technologies and applications the first time and every time. Our Cathodic Protection wing can provide project management service covering site feasibility survey, design, engineering, installation, commission and hand over of the project within the stipulated time period.

Design Consultancy

TechnoCorr Engineering is ready to assist with your specifications and material selections. With reference to your specified international standards, our NACE/ICorr certified CP specialists will develop cost effective solutions to ensure your assets are fully protected and fit for purpose.

We can also assist EPC contractors in performing site surveys and basic cathodic protection system design in order to produce well-defined project scope documents that allow for efficient cathodic protection project tendering and execution. Operating throughout the Asia and Middle East, TechnoCorr taps into the expertise of a team of highly qualified engineers and a wide portfolio of developed solutions.

Monitoring & Maintenance

TechnoCorr’s monitoring and maintenance programs are designed to help the clients to reduce costs and improve their competitive market position. Our approach is to provide solutions which allow companies to focus on their core business, while we take care of their facilities and assets. For customers that have existing or newly deployed cathodic protection or corrosion monitoring systems, we can take over the monitoring and maintenance of these systems on an annual basis or through long term contracts where we ensure your systems continue to provide corrosion protection.

We can retrofit your systems with remote monitoring and control modules and routinely check up on your systems without a single visit to your site!

Trouble Shooting

"Troubleshooting is our specialty and passion."

If your production assets are at risk or underperforming, we have technical specialists with the expertise and experience to deliver practical solutions to your problems.

Sometimes our role can be as simple as bringing a fresh perspective. More often we need to apply our deep understanding of the engineering of corrosion and cathodic protection.

Regardless, there is no doubt that the insight we have gained - from thousands of engagements across different industrial situations, plant/equipment configurations and process conditions - enables our people to find the root cause of any equipment failures, AC/DC interference issues or corrosion problem.

How you can benefit:

  • Identify "root cause" sooner
  • Reduce uncertainty
  • Make more informed decisions
  • Manage risk
  • Access to expertise
  • Mitigate the Problem
  • Ensure Service Life

Direct Assessment

Direct assessment can be External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA) or Internal Corrosion Direct Assessment (ICDA). Direct assessment is a structured process used as an alternative to pigging it is performed in four stages:

  • Pre-Assessment – Collection and evaluation of historical data and pipeline characteristics
  • Indirect Inspection – Use of over the line survey techniques or internal flow and slope assessment to determine high risk areas for excavation
  • Direct Examination – Excavation and inspection
  • Assessment – Assessment of defects and definition of repair and inspection plans

Our ECDA team is capable to carry out over the line surveys to determine the depth and position of the pipeline, assessment of CP system effectiveness, coating failures, current requirement and attenuation test. The direct/indirect inspection techniques involve;

  • CIPS surveys
  • DCVG surveys
  • Electromagnetic surveys
  • CAT / ACVG surveys
  • Soil resistivity surveys,Soil/Water Chemical analysis
  • Bell Hole examination

Risk Based Inspection& Failure Analysis

Risk Based Inspection (RBI) combines the likelihood of failure due to degradation with the consequence, informing the choice of inspection intervals and methods.

RBI can be used to confidently extend inspection intervals and to target inspection methods at the right damage mechanisms, which carry the most risk.

RBI is most effective when inspection intervals are reviewed based on actual equipment deterioration. Due to the very large volume of data, business intelligence solutions form an important part of the review process.

TechnoCorr can help gather and maintain the data needed to optimize an RBI program. We can do the initial review, prepare inspection work packs and advise on inspection intervals and methods.

Failure analysis serves to determine remedial actions, or design improvements, to prevent recurrence of failure after replacement (or repair) of failed equipment, and thus the prevention of further undesirable safety and economic consequences.

Failure analysis can provide impartial and consistent diagnoses of the sequence of damage. This capacity is typically required when you need to confirm whether failure was induced by equipment service history or by manufacturing defects.

We can help you make sense of inspection data though custom developed business intelligence solutions.
