PROTECTING MOORING CHAINS IN SEA WATER

A unique system developed by the U.S. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory for cathodically protecting mooring chains with zinc anodes requires little maintenance and greatly extends chain life. The system provided complete protection to a mooring over a three-year period during which the potential profile was monitored periodically. When relocated, the mooring was in good condition and required no maintenance.
