Prevent reduced vessel performance due to marine fouling
Marine fouling in seawater cooling systems is a threat to the performance of ships and installations. Removal of marine growth in a ship’s seawater lines also leads to increased cost and delays during maintenance. To reduce this risk, GS Electronics uses the Marine Growth Prevention System (MGPS), also known as Impressed Current Anti Fouling (ICAF).
MGPS / ICAF systems use copper anodes that are connected to a compact control unit. An impressed current is sent to the anodes which releases a small amount of copper ions into the water flowing through the ship’s sea water system or seachests, creating an environment which prevents the settlement of micro-organisms.
