One thought on “[ARTICLE] Cathodic Protection Failure”
Thank you for such a detailed article. It is really informative and can be useful. Although I would like to add that another thing that should always be remembered is the scheduled inspection of the cathodic protection system. There are many ways to organize it, but one of the best is to use inspection software.
1. You can customize the inspection checklists for your own system and even set certain standards so that if any discrepancies in the data are detected, you will be notified immediately.
2. Since all documents are stored in a centralized system, you can be sure that you won’t lose any important information about previous inspections. Thus, analytics will be significantly improved due to the extreme accuracy of your data.
The best risks are the risks that can be prevented, and this is always worth bearing in mind, because sometimes repairs can be even worse than installing a new system.
