Stena Line Selects Bekaert

Wednesday, January 10, 2007
Stena Line selects Bekaert to help conserve energy among its fleet of ships. With the installation of Bekaert advanced solar control window film, industry leader Stena Line minimizes fuel consumption, improves comfort for passengers and employees and significantly lowers air conditioning use. The savings based on the cost of air conditioning has been calculated to be approximately 247,000 kWh/year, which could equal fuel savings of 58 cubic meters/15,321 U.S. gallons for one ship. The collaboration between Stena Line and Bekaert creates vast opportunities, both for the maritime industry leader and the environment. Bekaert window film was developed after years of research by the company's scientists active in its pioneering research and development centers in San Diego, California, and Deerlijk, Belgium. By applying its ground-breaking sputter-coating technologies, using gold, silver and various other alloys, Bekaert window film blocks 95% of infrared heat, offering strong protection against bothersome glare, uncomfortable heat, hotspots and uneven temperature fluctuations -- improving climate and energy efficiency.
