Always clean hull for the most challenging operations

Combat early-stage fouling

High performance coatings

Jotun’s SeaQuantum Skate coating has been developed specifically for use in combination with the HullSkater technology. The new coating builds upon the excellent performance of the SeaQuantum brand, which is the result of over 20 years research and development in silyl acrylate technologies. SeaQuantum Skate is the only coating tailored for Hull Skating.

Proactive condition monitoring

This is an essential component of predictive hull maintenance. Jotun’s in-house analysts make fouling predictions based on big data trends, algorithms and analyses, and advise customers on when to carry out hull maintenance. This also includes oceanographic assessment for fouling prediction and enables the Skate Operator to perfectly time the deployment of the HullSkater.

Inspection and proactive cleaning icon

Inspection and proactive cleaning

The HullSkater is the first robotic device that has been purposely designed for proactive cleaning. It has high inspection and cleaning capacity and removes fouling without damaging the antifouling coating. The HullSkater is always kept onboard the vessel, which means that it is always available and can be used when the ship is in harbour or at anchor.
