Jotun Supplies HPS with Seaquantum X200 Coating to Maersk Line to Reinforce Energy Efficacy



Published July 8, 2014
Jotun, one of the global leaders in marine antifouling coatings, has signed an agreement with Maersk Line to supply Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) with SeaQuantum X200 for the Triple-E new build project.
The Triple-Es are one of the world’s largest ships - renowned as much for their energy efficiency as their size. By upgrading to Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) with Jotun's top-of-the-line SeaQuantum X200 antifouling coating, the Triple-E ships are expected to reinforce their energy efficiency advantage.
Maersk Line has ordered a series of 20 Triple-E vessels, with 10 now already in or entering service, and a further 10 under construction at DSME in South Korea. The vessel is 400 meters long, 59 meters wide and 73 meters high, boasting a world-beating 18,000 TEU capacity. It weighs in at 165,000 dwt. Keeping underwater hull surfaces smooth and clean is crucial to Maersk Line's efforts to minimize fuel costs and GHG emissions.
"Maersk Line is an industry front-runner in fuel efficient shipping, and the Triple-E shows the company’s commitment to continuous improvement," said Geir Bøe, Jotun's vice president of Marine Coatings. "Advanced antifouling technology is central to optimizing hull performance and the world fleet's energy consumption. HPS demonstrates its effectiveness, helping shipowners to quantify efficiency gains and contributing to something we all want – a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly, and profitable shipping industry."
