BMT Argoss and International Paint partner to deliver measurable hull coatings performance
October 28, 2011
BMT Argoss and International Paint have formed a partnership designed to deliver demonstrable and transparent improvements in performance, efficiency and environmental emissions for the global shipping fleet. By deploying International Paint’s fouling control coatings in conjunction with the BMT Smartservices system, ship owners and operators can reduce energy use and CO2 emissions, International Paint said. The system developed by BMT Argoss will independently monitor and report to stakeholders, the performance of their vessels. BMT Smartservices builds on the track record of BMT Smartpower, which is an advanced onboard, real-time performance monitoring and reporting system that acquires and records data automatically from ship sensors and provides ship performance information to the crew and shore based management.
