Abstract:

A kit was developed to reduce corrosion-related maintenance costs by cathodically protecting Fleet moorings. Maintenance costs for Fleet moorings in the Naval Shore Establishment might be reduced by 360,000 annually if the moorings were cathodically protected by this system. The kit consists of Special-D zinc anodes, wire rope, and special fittings. It can be used either to install a cathodic protection system in a Fleet mooring in situ or to replace consumed link-anodes in situ. A guide is included for use of this kit by field activities.
