Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) is one of the methods to protect a metal from corrosion by utilizing electricity supply. In this paper, a renewable energy-based electrical source in the form of magnesium anode voltaic cell is proposed to supply ICCP system. Based on the experiment results, the proposed voltaic cell can generate 0.6 Volt voltages and 0.023 Ampere electric current. According to those potential, the required number of voltaic cell to protect the object of Live Fish Carrier “Wellboat” is 2849 cell, connected 37 in series and 77 in parallel.
