In addition, Hempel’s "Hempaguard” shows fuel savings of six per cent on average over a full docking interval, according to the producer. This is particularly interesting for larger container vessels and tankers that, for example, may wish to increase speed on one route to meet schedules and slow steam on the other to achieve extra fuel savings.

System is flexible

It covers most combinations of sailing routes and trading patterns. In contrast to regular hull coatings that, in general, are specified according to the vessel’s type and activity level, it retains its effectiveness when switching between slow and fast steaming. The technology is a response to customers’ needs for a new hull coating that could make a difference to their business in terms of effectiveness, sustainability and flexibility.
