Cathelco has won orders to supply equipment for multiple cruise and bulk carriers being built in European and Far East yards in the coming months.

Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems will be supplied for a total of five cruise vessels currently being built by Fincantieri in Italy.

Cruise orders

One of the systems will be installed on the latest 143,000 grt Princess Cruise vessel which, when completed, will be identical to the Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2019.

The Cathelco ICCP system, consisting of an arrangement of hull mounted anodes and reference electrodes wired to a thyristor control panel, will protect the wetted surface of the hull against corrosion.

Cathelco is also supplying ICCP systems for two 135,500 grt cruise ships which Fincantieri are building for Costa Asia and P&O Cruises Australia. The hulls of both vessels will be protected against corrosion with 200 amp forward systems and 400 amp stern systems.

Meanwhile, Viking Ocean Cruises already has Cathelco ICCP systems installed on six of its latest ships ordered from Fincantieri. It has now ordered a further two sister vessels from the Italian builder which will be installed with ICCP equipment, scheduled for delivery in 2021 and 2022.

Tanker systems

In the commercial sector, Cathelco is supplying two types of systems for six 82,000 dwt bulk carriers which will be built for Oldendorff Carriers by the Hantong Heavy Industries shipyard in China.

Each of the vessels will be installed with marine growth prevention systems (MGPS) to protect seawater pipework against biofouling and ICCP systems to safeguard the hulls against corrosion.

Cathelco MGPS and ICCP systems will also be installed on four 38,800 dwt chemical tankers which are being built by HHI for Carl Buttner of Bremen for delivery between July 2018 and September 2019.
