With the raw material cost increases of 2016 set to continue into 2017, leading coatings manufacturer Hempel has announced price increases of certain products.
The Muehlhan Group is one of the world’s most experienced marine coatings application companies. When Muehlhan was contracted to re-coat the ballast tanks on the Saipem 7000 semi-submersible crane vessel, we supplied a ballast tank coating that enabled them to work around the clock.
By utilising pure epoxy resins in a common coating across many offshore asset areas – lifecycle maintenance can be greatly simplified. This reduces downtime, saving time and money.
Finished vehicle transportation company Neptune Lines has a reputation for fast and on-time deliveries. Keeping to schedule means the company’s fleet of Pure Car & Truck Carriers (PCTCs) must always be able to operate at top speed. Thanks to our Hempaguard hull coatings, Neptune Lines’ PCTCs can not only meet their delivery targets, but also consume less fuel and produce lower emissions.
In order to improve operational efficiency, the Grimaldi Group has applied our silicone hull coatings to more than 30 vessels since 2011 – and has achieved significant reductions in fuel bills and associated C0₂ emissions as a result.
