Norwegian paints and coatings manufacturer Jotun (Sandefjord, Norway) announced earlier this month the signing of a 42-vessel contract with shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen. The coatings company will provide its Hull Performance Solutions anti-fouling coating system for the RoRo fleet.

Working in tandem with technical and digital solutions, the HPS system implements SeaQuantum X200 antifouling to measure hull performance. The antifoulant will also serve to increase vessel efficiency and cut fuel costs.

“This is a major contract with a true global leader within this industry niche,” said Ulf Skovli, Regional Sales Director, Jotun Marine Scandinavia.

“Wallenius Wilhelmsen is a respected shipowner and operator that is known for its commitment to innovation, optimal operational standards and environmental care. It’s therefore hugely gratifying that it has chosen Jotun as ‘solutions partner’ for the future, and very pleasing to see the team’s faith in the powerful benefits of the HPS offering.”

Geir Fagerheim, SVP Marine Operations for Wallenius Wilhelmsen, noted that the company remains focused on the environmental impact of its operations. Maintaining foulant-free hulls is part of this measure. “With HPS we can not only achieve this objective, but we also open a digital window onto how hull condition affects fleet-wide performance, efficiency and emissions, creating a culture of transparency and accountability.”

Jotun’s HPS was released into the market in 2011, and has been used on around 1,000 vessels.
