Standard coating advisory

Our Standard Coating Advisory service allows you to benefit from a high quality coating application.


We monitor surface preparation and coating application onsite, making sure quality standards are followed and any potential issues are corrected before undocking. As a result, you can expect a better coating performance and longer maintenance intervals.

Premium coating advisory

With our Premium Coating Advisory service, a Hempel coating advisor is onsite during your entire coating project.


We advise on coating application to ensure a high-quality finished coating, and work with the shipyard and applicators to ensure the coating process runs smoothly – to reduce your repair costs and get your vessel back in the water as quickly as possible.

Project management

Designed specifically for performance-driven and fuel-conscious owners and operators, our Project Management service delivers the optimum reduction in repair costs, repair time and fuel savings.


A Hempel coating advisor manages your entire coating project from start to finish, and we coordinate with the superintendent, shipyard, sub-contractors and applicators to ensure every concern is addressed. As a result, you benefit from an optimised docking time and know that your hull coating will deliver maximum fuel savings throughout its entire service life.

Condition survey

In a Condition Survey, we evaluate the status of your existing structure and coating system and provide recommendations for corrective actions.

An expert coating advisor performs a complete survey of your vessel, identifies potential issues and advises on long-term maintenance requirements. This ensures you can correct issues before they become a problem to keep your long-term maintenance costs down and extend your vessel’s trading time and service life.
