Optimise hull performance

The HullKeeper Program

Monitoring

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.

Alerts

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.

Inspections

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.

Advisory

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.

Making a difference

Both decarbonisation and biofouling are regulars on the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) agenda and there is growing pressure from inside and outside the industry to focus more on environmental and efficiency matters. In an increasingly competitive environment, efficiency can be a sustainable competitive advantage.
