Fouling protection is essential for maintaining speed and schedule. This also influences the fuel consumption and subsequently the environmental impact due to emissions to the air.
The maritime industry carries about 90% of the world?s trade, and close to 4% of the total emission to air comes from this trade. Efficient fouling protection is therefore important to reduce the carbon footprint from this industry.
Design of an antifouling system must be based on factors such as the vessel?s speed, operation rate and area of operation. Jotun – as one of the world?s leading suppliers of fouling protection – can offer a wide range of antifouling coatings together with an alternative biocide free fouling release coating:
