RT Group, Inc. (RTG) was retained by Dunellen, LLC to design the cathodic protection system for the structural steel piles that support the Middle Dolphin, East Dolphin, Barge Fender, and East Mooring Bollard at the Wilkesbarre Pier in East Providence, Rhode Island. Providing adequate cathodic protection for the structural steel included installing 60-lb. and 120-lb. aluminum anodes to the existing steel H-piles and pipe piles that support these structures. In addition, RTG designed coal tar epoxy and mastic coatings to protect steel components above MLW.
