MSC monitors efficiency gains from hull performance

MSC Oscar MSC Oscar Jotun

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is to expand its use of Jotun’s Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) after a successful pilot programme that resulted in fuel efficiency gains and reduced CO2 emissions.

The container giant initiated its fuel efficiency programme in 2011, and has been working with Jotun Marine Coatings to monitor the impact of antifouling on speed loss.

The testing was carried out on the 8,772 TEU containership MSC Adelaide, with MSC noting “lower fuel costs and associated carbon emissions, consistent with MSC’s commitment to a healthier supply chain.”

The HPS technology and monitoring will now be applied to a further 12 vessels, including the MSC Oscar, the world’s largest containership.
