RetroLink™ anode string

Product or Service
RetroLink Hanging Anode Deployment from Deepwater

RetroLink™ is a cost-effective cathodic-protection retrofit system consisting of three to 15 aluminum anodes cast directly onto a heavy-duty wire rope. The RetroLink attaches mechanically and electrically above the water line, allowing the string to hang in the seawater with at least two anodes dragging in the mud.

From 2009-2014, RetroLinks were used to retrofit the cathodic protection on over 500 fixed structures.

The installation is almost always diver-less and performed from a small vessel. RetroLink™ can be used for any structure in less than 85ft of water.

In addition to being easy to install, the RetroLink system is incredibly robust. RetroLink is consistently able to resist category 2 hurricanes and often remains in service after category 4 storms. Two operators doing post-hurricane inspections in 2009 found that 95% of their RetroLinks were still working after hurricanes Gustav, Ike, Humberto, Rita, and Katrina. The RetroLink is exceptionally reliable cathodic protection with minimal installation expenditures for offshore, inshore or marine structures.

Other benefits of the system:

  • extremely versatile
  • adjustable in the field
  • weld-on or clamp-on support
  • hurricane-resistance
  • quick installation.
