In this real case study we analyze various corrosion problems encountered in Spanish fleets and present possible solutions. As a first step, we developed a statistical analysis of the north Mediterranean Sea fleets to define the age of the vessels, hull construction material and main activities involved. As a result, different corrosion problems were identified as well as solutions like paint, sacrificial anodes and impressed currents, and of course, improved design. Generally, we can state that, according to the results obtained, a series of incidents have increased the repair and maintenance costs of the vessels in the area under study
