Shipowners and operators are looking for ways to improve fleet efficiency and cut costs. The price of bunker fuel continues to rise. More attention is being paid to total ownership cost of a vessel or fleet. Extending the drydocking interval is becoming a reality, with hull paint performance being a major deciding factor. The effects of shipping on the marine environment and the atmosphere are receiving more and more attention.
Hydrex provides a means to drastically improving efficiency in fleet performance from the water level down. Globally available high quality hull monitoring, inspection, maintenance and repair help shipowners save fuel and keep their ship hulls, propellers and underwater equipment all operating at optimum.
ShipHullPerformance.org is a website sponsored by the Hydrex Group, providing valuable information to those interested in underwater ship hull protection, performance, monitoring, maintenance and repair. Free membership provides access to all the material on the website including Hydrex White Papers and the quarterly Journal of Ship Hull Performance, either as PDFs or in printed form or both.
