Evaluation of energy saving devices and anti-fouling paints
Background and action taken:
Based on the data available for the whole fleet, FPC has provided Ship Owners with recommendations on the most optimal paint coating which can be applied in relation to the vessel speed, drafts and operational profile. This has assisted Owners in making more informed decisions when planning to invest in high value paints or energy saving devices.
A performance improvement of about 35% from pre-docking phase was seen in one specific case which also elevated the vessel’s CII and Rightship GHG Emission ratings.
