EURONAV invests in hull performance data system

Tanker owner EURONAV is to implement Jotun’s Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) package for two of its Suezmax vessels, which will see a range of measurement sensors applied to their hulls to measure the effect of the antifouling coatings applied to the ships and to provide data to manage hull performance.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The two-year agreement will see Samsung-built sister ships M/T Cap Guillaume and M/T Cap Philippe receive coatings of Jotun’s SeaQuantum X200 as well as having the sensors installed, which will take place during upcoming dry dockings at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore.

“Optimising hull performance delivers clear environmental and business benefits, cutting emissions while enabling reduced fuel use and bunkering costs. This helps us provide the best performance and value for all our stakeholders,” said Theodore Mavraidis, fleet technical manager at EURONAV.

“Jotun’s HPS has been assessed as a very promising choice. Not only because of its coating technology, but also due to the team’s expertise in determining hull performance and providing documented proof of effectiveness. This gives us complete insight into return on investment. We’re looking forward to experiencing the long-term benefits of HPS over the coming months and years.”

Jotun recently released data for the first ever five year dry-docking of a vessel treated with HPS, Gearbulk’s Penguin Arrow. This showed that, across the 60-month operational period, the vessel recorded a fuel saving of US$1.5 million, cutting CO2 emissions by some 12,055 tonnes.{/mprestriction}
