Hempel and DNV GL have signed a cooperation agreement to work together to create analytics to track and assess hull and propeller performance.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“We are very pleased to be able to work with Hempel to bring their customers ECO Insight’s state of the art hull degradation analytics,” said Torsten Büssow, head of fleet performance management at DNV GL.

“This data will not only give their customers transparent and verified data with only a few simple measurement inputs. It will also give Hempel access to advanced analytics for the further optimisation of their coatings.”

“We’ve already seen the benefits our customers have gained from having real fleet performance analytics easily available – especially in the area of hull and propeller performance – and we’d like to welcome Hempel customers to the ECO Insight family.”

Estimates of potential savings of fuel and greenhouse gas emissions from improvements in hull and propeller performance are in the range of 10 per cent, the companies said.

“At Hempel we place great importance in being close to our customers and providing the best individual service. With the data analysed by DNV GL, we will be able to optimise our customers’ fuel performance, improving hull performance matching specifications precisely to individual needs and trade, dry dock intervals and technical service in dock,” said Christian Ottosen, group vice president marine marketing, Hempel.

“This will benefit our customers and support their businesses being more efficient in their operations. So far, we have been very pleased to cooperate with DNV GL, and we look forward to working even closer with their staff from now on.”{/mprestriction}
