Up to 8 per cent fuel savings for chemical and oil tanker

Owned by the Danish-based liquid cargo transporter Uni-Tankers, the M/T Fionia Swan is designed to carry oil and liquid chemicals – and it has seen excellent fuel savings since switching to our Hempaguard X7 hull coating.

The challenge

Uni-Tankers is committed to transporting liquid cargoes in a safe and secure manner while protecting the environment. Therefore, the company wanted an efficient hull coating for the Fionia Swan that would deliver both significant fuel savings and reductions in associated C02 emissions.

The solution

To achieve this, Uni-Tankers chose Hempaguard X7, our industry-leading fouling defence coating. Hempaguard X7 releases 95 per cent less biocide than traditional antifoulings, yet still delivers better fouling control. For Uni-Tankers, this meant fuel savings of 4-5 per cent – rising to 8 per cent in certain loading conditions.
