SOS! A flood of information is coming up

Without coating, it takes about 60 seconds until unwanted organisms start to settle on the hull of boats and ships while salt water is an aggressive agent that promotes corrosion of the ship hull.  Consequently, marine coatings have to have anti-fouling properties, AND act as a barrier against corrosion. Anti-fouling coatings are highly engineered, but have been subject to intense regulation and environmental concerns. With this in mind, this industry segment has undergone dramatic changes and is always looking to innovate.

Market overview
One of the conference highlights is the presentation about Market trends and forecasts for coatings on Floating Production and Storage Offshore units (FPSO’s) by Darren Broderick, Safinah Ltd., United Kingdom.

Key sessions of the conference:

  • The development process leading to Hempaguard and ActiGuard
    Stefan Moller Olsen, Hempel A/S, Denmark
  • A novel antifouling paint comprising conducting nanocomposite effective against barnacles
    Amir Mostafarei, Schanel University of Technology, Iran
  • Aspects related to improving the initial and long term frictional resistance on the underwater
    hull of ocean going vessels
    Seamus Jackson, Jotun A/S, Norway

Short course
Included in the conference is a 2-hour short course that will convey the basics on marine coatings.

Technical workshops
Attendees will have the chance to discuss topics driving the market of marine coatings during highly interactive workshop moderated by speakers.

See you in Dusseldorf!
