Drilling and jack-up rigs

We also offer solutions for drilling and jack-up rigs. These platforms have varying needs and operational conditions, as well as limited opportunities for service and maintenance, so we focus on simple and reliable construction.

Today, our offering comprises of  integrated water and waste management systems, as well as corrosion-protection systems, for the offshore platforms and vessels.

Thanks to our global service network we can offer support, spare parts, and service in 70 countries across six continents.

Corrosion protection systems

Our Cathelco corrosion protection systems based on impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) technology are supplied for drilling rigs operating throughout the world. This background of experience enables our corrosion engineers to design systems which provide the optimum level of protection against corrosion throughout the life of the structure.

ICCP systems consist of an arrangement of anodes and reference electrodes which are wired to one or more control panels. Our expertise is in positioning the anodes to achieve the most effective pattern of current ‘spread’ and avoiding areas of ‘shadowing’. In some instances this requires the use of a combination of ICCP and sacrificial anodes.

Our Cathelco anodes and reference electrodes are designed to last up to 15 years and are diver changeable if replacement due to damage is necessary before this time.
