CORROSION launches the ICCP-SAM. The future in the sustainable protection of XX(X)L monopile foundations against corrosion worldwide.

The ICCP-SAM is specifically designed to remotely install ICCP anodes on monopile foundations of all sizes, anywhere on the foundation and in the roughest ocean conditions.

The ICCP-SAM(Subsea Assembly Method) is extremely compact and can be transported and deployed with minimal resources. The ICCP-SAM is operated remotely and maneuvers the anode underwater into the desired foundation hole. The anode is then secured to the foundation using the same tool. They can be replaced in the same way throughout the life of the foundation.

In addition to its infinite applicability to protect monopile foundations of all sizes worldwide, this method of installation leads to major savings in time and money. Unlike traditional methods which requires an installation and supply vessel as well as the use of secondary steel or a vulnerable CPS construction, this new method only requires a supply vessel. Another major advantage is that every type of monopile can now be protected in an environmentally friendly way during its entire lifespan. From the moment of installation to decommissioning.

CORROSION worked closely with offshore contractor Bluestream for this project. Specialist in remotely operated vehicles. “CORROSION is delighted to partner with Bluestream,” said Niels Ros, Manager Offshore Wind at CORROSION. We worked together intensively to achieve this great result. Not only are we very satisfied with the ICCP-SAM, but also with the collaboration and relationship we have built together.”

“We believe that by combining forces and expertise with companies such as Bluestream, we can offer (turnkey) solutions to better serve our customers. Together we provide sustainable cathodic protection (ICCP) solutions for offshore wind farms. From design and manufacturing, to commissioning, maintenance and remote monitoring.”

“This first collaboration with CORROSION has been very satisfactory” says Rolf de Vries, director at Bluestream. “By partnering with CORROSION we are able to bring together two unique technologies that will significantly reduce the costs for the offshore industry to protect their installations against corrosion. Furthermore, this is another big step forward in achieving sustainable operations for the offshore industry.”

The new ICCP SAM will officially be introduced at the Global Offshore Wind exhibition in London. Interested parties are cordially invited to our stand K52 from June 14-15. CORROSION representatives will be happy to provide further information and details regarding this exciting new product at the exhibition or through the contact information given below.
