Neptune Lines switches more vessels to Hempaguard®

Car and vehicle transporter Neptune Lines has a reputation for fast and on-time deliveries. To ensure its vessels can operate at top speeds, the company uses our low-friction antifouling hull coating Hempaguard X7.

The challenge

Neptune Lines transports finished vehicles for some of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers and logistics providers. This involves short lead times and tight delivery schedules, making vessel speed key. The company needed a hull coating that would allow it to best meet its chartering parameters, while also bringing fuel costs down to the lowest possible level.

The solution

Neptune Lines coated its Pure Car & Truck Carrier Neptune Dynamis with Hempaguard X7 in 2012. It soon became clear that the vessel was out-performing the other vessels in the Neptune Lines fleet in terms of speed, fuel consumption and emissions. As a result, the company decided to coat three additional vessels with Hempaguard X7.
