External coatings are the first defense against corrosion. The application of an effective cathodic protection (CP) system will extend design life and reduce the risk of leaks, loss of product and loss of operations. CP is paramount to regulatory compliance, safety and protection of the environment.
At SKW, our staff continually educates themselves on industry standards, regulations and best practices. We are focused on providing comprehensive, cost-effective CP solutions for new and existing pipelines and structures.
