MARCH 2018 VOL. 57, NO. 3 IN THIS ISSUE CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL WORLDWIDE MATERIALS PERFORMANCE When designed and installed properly, an impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) system for reinforced concrete structures is a proven technology that provides long-term corrosion prevention for marine structures. An ICCP system was installed and commissioned in 1999 on Wharves 4 and 5 at the Port of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. Three years ago, the concrete structures and ICCP system were assessed to determine if any renovation work was needed to sustain the ICCP system and extend the service life of the wharves for another 30 years. A new ICCP system design, described in the feature article on p. 28, moved the electronics from underneath the wharves; reduced the number of CP zones; decreased the amount of control units needed for the overall system; and utilized a global supervised power system that required less cabling.
