JHPMM was developed specifically to enable performance-based contracts as part of Jotun Hull Performance Solutions (HPS), as the Marorka Online platform can be used to determine the outcome of these performance-based contracts between shipowners and suppliers of hull and propeller performance solutions.
“There is an increasing body of evidence as to the fuel cost and GHG emissions saving potential related to improvements in hull and propeller performance,” said Marorka’s director of sales and marketing, Kristinn Aspelund.
“Enabling reliable measurements of hull and propeller performance through Marorka Online is an important step in our continuous efforts to help the shipping industry become more energy efficient, more sustainable and more competitive.”
“Performance-based contracting makes it possible for shipowners and eco-technology providers to work together to realise fuel cost and GHG emissions savings. We therefore expect that performance monitoring systems increasingly will include support for the transparent measurement of relevant performance indicators such as hull and propeller performance.”
