Case Study 1 : Transformer Rectifier Installation for the Tangier Med Port II Project
Placing almost a million tonnes of reinforced concrete structure into a hot marine environment creates the perfect conditions for the occurrence of corrosion. The client recognised that a high specification cathodic protection system was needed to ensure that their design life for the caissons of 100 years would be achieved. In this case study we explore in detail the issues, challenges and successes faced by the engineers and technicians, from the inception of the project to the present day, with 946 TR channels clocking up nearly 160,000 channel operating hours a week in a MENA environment.
