COST OF ANODE REPAIR CUT WITH COUGAR
An advanced anode repair concept has been launched with the help of Saab Seaeye’s Cougar XT electric e-robotic underwater vehicle as a development platform.

The new concept, created by SubC Partner, is said to save up to 75% in costs compared to hydraulic delivered anode repair systems.
It can be adapted for any size and shape of sacrificial anode, whether surface mounted or welded.
It offers a very fast anode exchange procedure that avoids diver intervention and can be undertaken in extreme weather conditions.
The system comes as a skid, and is a resource targeted at offshore wind installations, oil and gas fields and a range of maritime facilities.
This includes anode repair at monopiles, jackets, ships and semi-submersibles.
