RetroClamp for Pipelines and Tubulars_Marine Growth from Deepwater

Deepwater’s RetroClamps can be installed by diver or ROV, making them useful for anode retrofits at any depth.

The RetroClamp was originally designed to facilitate ROV attachment of retrofitted cathodic protection anode sleds to offshore pipelines.

The first clamps were built and deployed in 2000, and since that time, the clamp has been adapted and improved significantly for strength and versatility. Thousands of RetroClamps™ have been successfully installed by divers and ROVs for a wide variety of applications, including attachment to wellheads, vessels, and large-diameter tubular members.

The large majority of RetroClamps are still used for electrically connecting aluminium anodes to tubular platform members and pipelines, but Deepwater has begun using modified versions of the clamp for subsea cable runs and for attaching monitoring equipment to verify cathodic-protection system performance. This adaptability has made the use of RetroClamps widespread among Deepwater’s cathodic protection and monitoring systems.
