Global coatings manufacturer AkzoNobel (Amsterdam) recently announced the launch of a new digital tool that can facilitate dry-docking efficiency for ship owners.

DryDoQ utilizes proprietary data garnered from a number of external data sources. Specific areas are highlighted for attention as needed, such as specific vessel type and trading pattern, along with previous dry-docking.

“As a premium solution and service provider for the shipping industry, we’re always looking for ways to give our customers a competitive edge,” said Michael Hindmarsh, AkzoNobel Incubator Lead for the U.K.

“DryDoQ Insights enables vessel owners to make more informed decisions about upcoming dry docking requirements, which in turn will help them to better control their maintenance costs.”

The tool was launched as a minimal viable product for use by one of the world’s largest fleet operators, which will both help with testing as well as provide feedback. The tool is also currently available to others in the market.
