The 2,000th application of Hempaguard X7 was completed on the TORM Titan. Since its launch in 2013 by world-leading coatings manufacturer Hempel, the Hempaguard X7 hull coating has been applied over 2,000 times. By completing 2,000 vessel applications of Hempaguard X7, Hempel has reduced shipowners’ fuel consumption by 7.6 million tons, lowering fuel costs by at least US$2.6B and CO2 emissions by 23.5 million tons in just seven years. Michael Hansen, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “Reaching this important milestone of 2,000 full ship applications in just seven years proves the value of the solution for our customers. Simultaneously, it emphasizes the importance of developing solutions that help our customers deliver on their sustainability agendas while also reducing their costs tremendously. One of the key elements in our new strategy is to contribute to a more sustainable direction in the world. Solutions like Hempaguard will be essential to that.”
