Whitepaper / Cathodic Protection Performance
Whether it’s raging wildfires or widespread power outages during winter storms, failing power infrastructure can have destructive and deadly consequences. Recent examples of this have drawn increased public scrutiny along with hefty fines for service providers that fail to maintain critical infrastructure.
Analysis of these events along with other failures that have garnered less media attention all point to one thing: ignoring maintenance on aging critical infrastructure has severe repercussions. Due to a lack of available integrity data, it is impossible to know the severity of corrosion damage already affecting lattice towers. Corrosion professionals will know that this paints a bleak picture and unless tower legs and guy-wire anchors are individually unearthed and inspected, the first signs of something going wrong could be the slanting or collapse of the structure – putting workers, the public, and the environment at risk. These kinds of integrity failures have the potential to result in serious consequences for service providers, both in terms of public relations as well as the company’s bottom line.
Download our latest whitepaper release “FUTURE-FOCUSED POWER INFRASTRUCTURE INTEGRITY PROGRAMS RELY ON CATHODIC PROTECTION REMOTE MONITORING” to learn how a well-designed CP system can dramatically reduce the effect of corrosion on galvanized steel tower structures and the continued operation of the CP system can be easily and cost-effectively validated and optimized. The end result of a well-designed and future-focused corrosion integrity program that takes advantage of MOBILTEX CorTalk RMUs is reduced maintenance costs, extended operational life, greater asset resiliency, and increased safety for both workers and the general public.
