EURONAV opts for fuel saving hull performance system
MAJOR tanker owner and manager, EURONAV, has selected Jotun's Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) for two of Suezmax vessels, the Samsung-built sister ships 81,324-gross ton Cap Guillaume and same size Cap Philippe.
Both vessels will receive coatings of Jotun's advanced SeaQuantum X200 antifouling, alongside full suites of measurement sensors applied to their hulls, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
The applications, taking place at upcoming dry dockings at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, will increase vessel efficiency, cut fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions substantially compared to standard market alternatives.
Said EURONAV fleet technical manager Theodore Mavraidis: "Optimising hull performance delivers clear environmental and business benefits, cutting emissions while enabling reduced fuel use and bunkering costs. This helps us provide the best performance and value for all our stakeholders."
Said Jotun Hellas marine manager George Vranakis: "Our technology gives customers an insight into hull performance, demonstrating the efficacy of our silyl methacrylate coating in reducing speed loss."
Jotun and EURONAV signed the two-vessel contract after meetings at this year's Posidonia, where Jotun held a special seminar to update the industry on the arrival and implications of ISO 19030, which prescribes practical methods for measuring changes in ship-specific hull and propeller performance.
