Hyundai sees significant increase in fuel efficiency

After five years of using our coating systems, Hyundai decided to upgrade the hull coating on its container vessel Hyundai General to Hempaguard®, with excellent results.

The challenge

The Hyundai General container ship sails in the warm waters of the Middle East Gulf and the Indian Ocean, where the risk of fouling and its impact on fuel efficiency is high. To meet this challenge, Hyundai wanted the best fouling defence coating available.

The solution

The entire underwater area of the Hyundai General was coated with Hempaguard X7, an advanced fouling defence coating that delivers better fuel saving performance than best-in-class antifoulings, while releasing just 5 per cent of the biocides.
