Brochure On Underwater Treatment Of Hulls Available From Jotun

Jotun Marine Coatings has just published a new brochure titled Zero Growth In Fuel Consumption— How Close Can You Get?

It describes how proper underwater treatment of hulls can result in dramatic savings in fuel costs.

Four case studies of various types of ships are presented. The one for a 21-knot, 32,000-dwt containership indicates that decreased fuel consumption resulting from blastcleaning the hull and applying a sophisticated paint system can result in savings, based on fuel costs of $160 per ton, of up to $689,000 after one year. On the same ship, accumulated savings after five years are estimated at $3.7 million.

For more information and a free copy of the new brochure, write to Terje Lunde, Dept. M.R., Jotun-Baltimore Copper Paint, 501 Key Highway, Baltimore, Md.
