In July, Jotun and Dalian Ocean Shipping Company (a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Ocean Shipping Company, Cosco Group), celebrated the 10,000th application of SeaQuantum, Jotun’s premium antifouling, to their 297,336-dwt tanker, Cosrich Lake.
According to Mr. Zhao Jinwen, Vice Managing Director COSCO DALIAN, SeaQuantum plays an important role in the company’s efforts to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. “We are very pleased to receive the 10,000th application of SeaQuantum,” he said. “COSCO DALIAN is committed to building the largest, specialised and most fuel-efficient fleet of bulk liquid carriers in China, and Jotun’s SeaQuantum technology helps us achieve our goal.”
Geir Bøe, Jotun’s Vice President Marine Coatings says the Cosrich Lake project represents a genuine milestone for Jotun. “Based on proven performance and trust from our network of global customers, SeaQuantum has strengthened its position year by year to become the industry’s leading antifouling brand,” he says. “We will continue to support the industry’s efforts to reduce fuel costs and corresponding emissions with our full range of SeaQuantum products, optimised for different trading conditions.”
