Challenging Operations affect efficiency

The accumulation of fouling over time leads to a significant drop in performance and an increase in the vessel’s fuel consumption and environmental footprint. To counter this, ship operators select anti-fouling coatings for specific operating conditions. However, these coatings may not always be optimal due to changing operational profiles and factors outside coating tolerance.
