With HullKeeper, you get a range of services for optimized hull performance. You will be able to identify potential problems long before they slow you down, allowing you to make better decisions, faster.
The operator's challenge
Biofouling is a major issue in shipping and leads to significant increases in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. If a ship is being operated directly by the shipowner, then the answer is to some extent in their own hands, but many ships are under time charters and it is the charterer that suffers even though hull condition and coating choice are not in his control.Read more
The HullKeeper Program
Jotun has developed an innovative program to optimize hull performance regardless of the chosen coating. Designed to help identify potential fouling problems before they slow vessels down, HullKeeper enables the ship operator to take hull control and make better decisions, faster.
Jotun HullKeeper can help ship owners take hull control by enabling better decisions faster to maintain hull efficiency and environmental performance while also saving costs.Read more
