Take hull control

Optimise hull performance

The HullKeeper Program


HullKeeper Monitoring keeps track of the many variables that affect hull performance. These include the vessel’s trading pattern and other factors that influence fouling pressure. It can seamlessly give ship operators the operational profile for a single vessel or for their entire fleet.


HullKeeper Alerts continuously evaluates a vessel’s fouling risk and an alert is triggered by Jotun’s advanced algorithm when the fouling risk reaches a certain threshold. The need for further action is evaluated to ensure the hull performance is maintained.


The HullKeeper Program offers underwater hull inspections with an ROV which effectively provides eyes under water. The inspection is summarised in a detailed high-quality inspection report compiled by Jotun’s hull performance expert team, and serves as the basis for a dialogue on recommended actions to enhance hull performance.


Jotun has close to 100 years of experience in optimising hull performance. This expertise is made available to our customers through HullKeeper Advisory, which provides high-quality reports and presentations, and allows in-depth discussions with our hull performance expert team.

The operator’s challenge

Biofouling is a major issue in shipping and leads to significant increases in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Many ships are under time charters, and it is the charterer that suffers even though hull condition and coating choice are not in his control.
