Corrosion prevention on ships is concerned with the application of protective coating to ship construction steel and its ongoing maintenance. Cathodic protection, or the prevention of electrochemical waste, is also necessary.
Corrosion prevention and control (CPC) includes system design features that prevent or decrease corrosion, material selection, non-destructive inspections for corrosion detection, coatings, finishes, cleaning materials and washings, repairs, and other maintenance activities.
Marine corrosion is the breakdown or degradation of metallic materials caused by an electrochemical reaction in an environment with a naturally high salt moisture content (e.g., ocean, lake, sea).
The Global Marine corrosion prevention system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Volvo Penta now offers an Active Corrosion Protection system for sterndrives, which makes ownership easier and protects the drive from corrosion in the sea. With Active Corrosion Protection, Volvo Penta has taken another important step towards making boat ownership easier. (ACP).
The device was created to protect the boat owner’s drive from corrosion in the water and is already available for Volvo Penta IPS pod protection. The ACP option has now been expanded to accommodate all Volvo Penta sterndrives with the Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) platform; this includes all diesel engines and a major proportion of gasoline sterndrives.
They are the first company to provide total corrosion protection with an active system,” Its development was motivated by customers’ desire for a simple solution to avoid corrosion in their drive units. This is an exciting development that will immensely assist boaters.
Corrosion has traditionally been combated in the marine industry by installing sacrificial anodes,’ which are blocks of metal like as magnesium, aluminium, or zinc that are mounted to the hull or drive to keep crucial components from corroding. Sacrificial anodes degrade over time and must be replaced, usually during the annual servicing of a yacht.
ACP is a more effective and dependable choice than traditional corrosion protection with sacrificial anodes. The system protects the drive from galvanic corrosion by applying impressed currents through a transom unit, continuously measuring and automatically changing the electrical output for optimal protection in both brackish and salt water.
It eliminates the need for sacrificial anodes on the drive, providing the boat owner peace of mind that their drive is safe.
