Martechma is a respected association of Greek marine technical managers.
Antifouling paint and technology was identified by members as a confusing subject that they would like to understand.
Safinah, as independent marine coating experts, had the pleasure to present on the subject on 8th September at Maran’s training auditorium in Athens.
Safinah was represented by Raouf Kattan, Managing Director, and Alan Walker, Managing Partner, and the presentation detailed the penalties of fouling and roughness on hull performance, drag and fuel consumption.
The final slides as shown below ended with some “Golden Rules”, “Practical Advice” and things to “Keep in Mind” when considering antifouling coating: all aspects for which Safinah can offer independent support.
Keep in mind
Feedback from the members was positive in that the presentation was practical and concerned the effect of roughness and fouling on fuel consumption rather than the “baffling” chemistry that is often fed to Martechma members.
