The power industry is unique in its need for corrosion control methods. Having a blend of above and below grade infrastructure components, the power industry must contend with both atmospheric corrosion for above ground structures and electrolysis on buried facilities. In addition, because of the use of cooling water, corrosion on submerged structures can also be an issue.
The damage, as a result of corrosion, can affect structures such as fuel pipelines, storage tanks, steel towers, and more. If properly applied, corrosion control methods care reduce or even eliminate infrastructure losses caused by unabated corrosion. The use of cathodic protection systems for buried or submerged structures can save millions of dollars every year.
