In general, concrete structures have a very long service life, even when they are exposed to aggressive marine environments. However, their life may be shortened by factors that may seem irrelevant to their lifetime, such as an incorrect connection between the cathodic protection system and the structure to be protected. A case history concerning a concrete oil-loading wharf with such a problem is reported.
