This paper discusses the corrosion mitigation strategy for protecting the submerged sections of a monopile windturbine structure off the east coast of England in UK waters. The choice of the CP system was based on a remotely monitored trial to minimise the retrofit installation works and thereby keeping costs and offshore work activity down minimising the safety risk yet provide an effective working system. The details and results of the initial trial are presented as is the planning and preparation details to install aluminium anode strings inside of the supposed sealed internal sections of the windturbine monopiles.
