It is well known that capital assets can be seriously affected by the adverse consequences of corrosion. Roughening of hull surfaces causes increased drag and leads to excessive fuel consumption. Corrosion can also lead to weld grooving, which requires expensive and time-consuming repairs in dry-dock. Corrosion of structural members in tanks can jeopardize the integrity of a ship's structure. Repairing corrosion damage is inevitably costly, involving substantial steel renewal. Delays while vessels are out of commission take the cost of corrosion even higher. By comparison, cost of prevention by cathodic protection is modest.
