Ecospeed Coating in Excellent Condition After 1.5 Years

Friday, December 10, 2010

Recently, tow boat M/V Salvation came into drydock one and a half years after the underwater hull of the vessel was coated in Bayou La Batre, Alabama. The Ecospeed underwater hull coating was still in excellent condition. The vessel, which has been operating on the Mississippi River and along the coast of Louisiana, is the first of its kind to take advantage of the Ecospeed coating. Ecospeed is glass-like isolator which is virtually impenetrable and has a unique mechanical strength which protected M/V Salvation against sludge or the grinding impact of sand while sailing on the muddy Mississippi River and along the coast.
