Marine Coatings Webinar Week

07 July 2020
15:00 - 15:45

Be sure to join us for Marine Coatings Webinar Week 

Beginning in the second week of July, we will be holding a series of daily webinars, meticulously researched and organised to give operators insights on applying tank coatings, hull coatings and biofouling that meet operational and budgetary requirements. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled. 


Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels please contact Paul Dowling.


Please join us for any or all of the following:


Tank coatings and your ticket to trade

Date: Tuesday 7 July - Time: 15:00-15:45 BST

Watch now

Effective tank coatings are an operator’s ticket to trade, preserving and extending the range of cargoes that can be carried and therefore freight income and a vessel’s useful service life.

However problems persist – we engage with the experts for insights on the solutions.

Join us as we cover

  • The drivers that have resulted in the current ‘low absorption’ type epoxy tank linings 

  • The inherent problems with the coating types 

  • Specific issues with specific cargoes 

  • Best practice 

Panellists include:

Michael Aamodt, Coating Consultant, Safinah Group
Johnny Eliasson, Hull & Coatings Engineer, Chevron Shipping Co

Separating hype and hull coatings

Date: Wednesday 8 July - Time: 09:00-09:45 BST

Watch now

Industry has heard varying claims on the extent to which various protective hull coatings can mitigate corrosion and deliver fuels savings. This webinar takes an unvarnished look at the facts.

Join us as we cover

  • Why is fouling control needed and what is the fouling challenge  

  • Market drivers/regulations: high standards or an impediment  

  • How vessel profile and environmental data guide product selection  

  • Issues Above and below the waterline 

  • How EU and IMO bans will impact coatings

  • Grit blasting versus hydroblasting  

  • Can a marine coating ever be benign?

Biofouling – the next Ballast Water

Date: Thursday 9 July - Time: 16:00-16:45 BST


Watch now

Much like ballast water, biofouling of hulls is a challenge to biodiversity. IMO has this issue firmly in its sites and the UN calls biofouling ‘the silent killer’. Lessons learned in gearing up for ballast water regulation can be usefully applied in addressing this challenge.

Join us as we cover

  • IMO’s taking this seriously. Enter Global Project Task Force Glo Fouling
  • Biocide free coatings: up to the task?

  • Ultrasonic systems and hull wrapping assessed

  • Shipyard application. Dangers inherent in waste water run off after hull preparation and before antifouling

  • Filtration systems. Technology transfer. New technology.

  • What we can learn from industry’s ballast water treatment technology experience

Panellists include:

Tim Wilkins, Environment Director, INTERTANKO
John A Lewis, Principal Marine Consultant, ES Link Services
Sally-Ann Underhill, Partner, Reed Smith
Dr. Mario Tamburri, Professor, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
Johnny Eliasson, Hull & Coatings Engineer, Chevron Shipping Co
Tor M. Østervold, CEO, ECOsubsea
