So does Jotun in developing new technology, products and solutions towards offshore customers for better performance, longer protection and higher efficiency in harmony with the environment.

  • Location: Piranema field, off the northeast coast of Brazil
  • Owner: Sevan Marine ASA
  • Type: FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading)
  • Coatings: Jotacote Universal, SeaQuantum Ultra
There is a severe threat from fouling due to static exposure to warm water offshore Brazil.  SeaQuantum Ultra was applied to external underwater hull at new construction stage. The advanced hydrolysing organosilyl polymer technology ensures effective and predictable release of biocide to prevent fouling in a long period.

It is always a challenge for the yard to keep the construction scheme, and the complexity of coating systems as well as unfavorable weather like cold winter further add to the pressure.  Jotacote Universal - the truly universal primer from Jotun - made the coating job for Sevan Piranema much easier. One product for all positions, applicable all year round.
