Foul release hull coating


Technology Description

Hull coatings are spread on the immersed body of the ship to reduce its hydrodynamic drag. They reduce corrosion and hull roughness, also preventing bio-fouling (e.g. algae, small animals) that increases drag over time. New generations of coatings should enhance drag performance while offering more environmentally friendly formulas. Indeed, most of the current coatings can be harmful to the environment, due to their chemical components.

Relevance for Net Zero

Reducing hull roughness and preventing hull fouling reduces ship energy consumption by a few percentage points, possibly up to 10-15% (reference: › content › download › file).
