Painting a ship’s hull is one of the most expensive activities carried out during a dry dock repair operation. Considerable amount of commitment and investment is required to ensure that the task is carried out in the most efficient manner.
In the age of slow steaming, when ships have to comply with a series of environmental regulations, efficient hull coating and maintenance is of utmost importance. Loss of vessel speed from fouling also has huge fuel efficiency and bunker fuel cost implications, which is directly proportional to the quality of hull paint and hull fouling control systems.
In spite of such high importance of hull painting procedures in the dry dock, it is often found that there is a huge knowledge gap among maritime professionals which often leads to inefficient tasks and loss of both time and money.
