It is important to apply cathodic protection to mounded storage tanks as they are readily exposed to the filtering of corrosive water through upper layers of the mound.  Connection of these tanks via pipe work and earthing systems to other structures in a plant makes them susceptible to accelerated corrosion unless cathodic protection is applied.

It is important to ensure an even current distribution using a number of strategically placed anodes or continuous type anodes between, above and below the tanks.  Over protection and cathodic disbondment of the coating can occur if the systems are not carefully designed, installed and monitored.  Great care is required to ensure electrical isolation of the tanks.
