Eitzen Chemical A/S has decided to implement Jotun's Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) on two of their largest chemical carriers. The first vessel, Siteam Discoverer, applied SeaQuantum X200 to the hull at the COSCO Dalian Shipyard in China in May, while the next vessel will dock in October later this year.


"Through several years of measuring our vessel's performance, we recognize that the correct choice of antifouling is one of the low hanging fruits when it comes to increasing our vessel's energy efficiency", said Rasmus Kjaer, General Manager Technical for Siteam Discoverer at Eitzen Chemical. "Eitzen Chemical is aware of its environmental responsibility and we strive to comply with and maintain high standards in order to reduce the environmental impact from our operations." Mr Kjaer added.


In 2011 Jotun launched its Hull Performance Solution (HPS) – consisting of a top of the range antifouling (SeaQuantum X200), a reliable and transparent method for measuring the impact of the antifouling on vessel energy efficiency as well as a no-cure-no-pay business model.


Jotun’s Hull Performance Solution with its SeaQuantum X200 antifouling has been designed to maximize vessels’ hull performance and thereby optimize their energy efficiency. Accordinf to Jotun, the technology gives both an optimized initial smoothness and long term performance, enabling shipping companies to reduce their fuel consumption and emission of green-house gases. Jotun claims that compared to market average antifouling, SeaQuantum X200 is expected to deliver an improvement in propulsion efficiency by 15% on a ship that maintains its speed over 60 months.
