MPE Cathodic AS was established in 2007 through a merge between Moss Power Electronics As and Cathodic AS.
Our business is devided into marine (mainly steel vessels), offshore installations and land based industry. In close collaboration with our customers we develop solutions and products which fulfill their demands. Our R & D is located at Rygge in Norway.
MARINE AND OFFSHORE
ICCP (Impressed Current Cathodic Protection) is a fully automatic, electrical system which protects steel constructions submerged in sea water. Examples are ships hulls, sheet pile walls and offshore constructions.
SACP (Sacrificial Anodes Cathodic Protection) Some prefer to use sacrificials. It is generally accepted that aluminium is superiour to zinc both technically and economically. However, where there are live fish we use zinc anodes, which are documented free from Cadmium.
ICAF (Impressed Current Anti Fouling) is a system that prevents marine growth in sea chests, pipework and on boxcoolers. Main components are an electronic power supply and copper anodes. This is the most effective way of keeping mussels and barnacles out. Without such an arrangement there is always a risk of experiencing cooling problems.
We can design and supply any kind of anode – regardless of origin.
SLIP RINGS All conventional propulsion systems need a slip ring to prevent electrical potential differenses between shaft/propeller and hull. When the shaft turns the grease in the shaft bearing creates an electrical resistance which can build up potential differences. Worst case is damages to shaft bearing, main gearbox and even main engines crankshaft and bearings. Damages like pittings can also occur on the propeller. A good slip ring, with silver contact way and silver graphite brushes, will prevent such problems.
BOXCOOLERS Since the merge MPE Cathodic AS has been representing Nederlandse Radiateuren Fabriek (NRF) in Norway. NRF is the inventor of the boxcooler (1959). NRF has proven to be a very popular choice in our country. In our minds a result of quality, our expertise and ability to react.
We design, develop and manufacture many different types of rectifiers and electronic control units. Many of these solutions are created in cooperation with our customers based on their product specifications.
MPE Cathodic AS is also a designer and manufacturer of emergency lighting for railway tunnels. You will find these products all over Norway. The concept is based on high reliability, low energy consumption, long product lifetime and easy installation. Serviceability is important as replacement of lighting may have to be done within a short period of time.
We have represented Enerpro Inc., USA for many years. Enerpro Inc. is one of the most advanced manufacturers of high quality electronic control units in the world. They are used for e. g. power supplies, motor control and many other purposes. This is also a field where we find customer specified solutions.
MPE Cathodic AS is a friendly, customer oriented company. We focus on “right product – right time”.
