WRS Cathodic protection is a worldwide operating specialist in corrosion control within the marine and offshore industry.
WRS was originally founded in 1994 and well known as WRS Marine Inspections. The company can provide tailor made solutions in cathodic protection surveys, impressed current systems, sacrificial anodes, marine consultancy, calculations and anti-fouling systems.
Our aim is to deliver an added value in project management by reducing timings, deliver strong recommendations and work with high quality standards.
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.
In the field of marine corrosion protection, WRS Cathodic protection has been acknowledged for its vast engineering expertise, together with the Wilson Walton range of branded products, provides the firm foundation on which WRS Cathodic protection division has been built.
