Big job at major port for isles firm
Isles firm Ocean Kinetics has been awarded a major contract to carry out work at the UK’s largest container handling centre in Felixstowe.
The Lerwick-based company will replace an existing cathodic protection (CP) system – a method of corrosion control that can be applied to buried and submerged metallic surfaces – within parts of the infrastructure at Trinity Terminal.
A specialist team of divers, surface welders and fabricators will replace and remove about half a kilometre of CP.
Over the course of the works 2,000 new galvanic anodes – the main component of a CP – will be installed along the entire length of the quays.
