Hull coatings & biofouling

3 key areas looking at hull coatings & biofouling:

Adapting hull coatings to different marine environments

Adapting hull coatings to changing marine environments

  • Choice of coating – impact of vessel performance indicators
  • Maintenance – age, location of coating, application and general service
  • Impact of ballast water management and invasive species area on coating
Reducing heat exchange through vapor infusion

Reducing shipboard heat exchanger fouling with I2 vapor infusion

  • Maintains system functionality reducing energy needs
  • Reduces labor associated with heat exchanger maintenance
  • Reduces the need for exchanger tear down
  • Avoids the use of caustic chemicals
  • Environmentally safe
Scrubber technologies to reduce biofouling

Analysing scrubber technologies and practicalities

  • Cost payback factors
  • Is there enough capacity for retrofitting vessels with scrubber technology?
  • Is time in the dock worth the long term investment?
