AkzoNobel Program Backs Hull Standard

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Comment | More

The marine coatings business of coatings supplier AkzoNobel is launching an international program to encourage the adoption of a recently created standard for hull and propeller performance measurement.

ISO 19030, the Hull and Propeller Performance Standard, was approved last June by the Draft International Standard ballot of the Organization for Standardization (ISO). The standard prescribes practical methods for measuring changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance, and defines a set of performance indicators for hull and propeller maintenance, repair and retrofit activities.

ISO 19030 prescribes practical methods for measuring changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance.

Proponents say the standard has the potential to save the shipping industry as much as $30 billion in fuel costs annually by eliminating inefficiency.

AkzoNobel Support

AkzoNobel announced Thursday (March 2) that it is launching a program to make it easier for ship owners and operators to see the value in the standard and to adopt it. ISO 19030 is a voluntary standard.

“ISO 19030 has the potential to play a decisive role in strengthening relationships between ship owners and providers of energy-saving solutions such as hull coating and propeller manufacturers, which will in turn enable the industry to work towards the adoption of the most sustainable and efficient technologies,” said Barry Kidd, ISO 19030 working group member for AkzoNobel’s Marine Coatings Business.

The new standard can, among other things, be used to measure the performance of fouling-control hull coatings. It is meant to be used to measure improvements in hull and propeller performance for a given ship; it is not designed to compare performance between multiple ships, or to be used in a regulatory capacity.
