Containerised Electrochlorination Systems for Nuclear Submarine Dosing - Biofouling & Microbial Influenced Corrosion Control
2 further units for Royal Navy
WES were approached by the Royal Navy 18 months ago to manufacture an experimental dosing system for injecting Sodium Hypochlorite into submarine cooling water intakes for control of Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) in the copper alloy heat exchanger systems.
Working closely with the Royal Navy engineers, a trial unit was designed, manufactured and connected to a trafalgar class nuclear submarine.
The trial proved to be extremely successful and WES have continued working closely with the Royal Navy and Babcock Marine and have developed packaged electrochlorination systems for both wet & dry dock chemical injection applications.
The scope of work also includes the design & manufacture of innovative submerged Polyethylene limpet assemblies for attachment to the submarine intake grills comprising dual flowmeters & injection assembly connecting to an umbilical to transfer signals and chemical between the dockside unit and the submerged limpet assembly.
