International Marine Coatings Highlighted its Fouling Control Coating at Nor-shipping 2013

Published on 2013-07-19. Author : SpecialChem

This year's Nor-shipping event heralded the return of International Marine Coatings Norway, attracting ship-owners and ship operators from around the world, with over 14,870 visitors and more than 1,000 exhibiting companies attending the event, held 4th - 7th June in Oslo.

With a brand new exhibition stand, the prominent red propeller signaled International®'s presence, which remained constantly busy throughout the four day event.

Attracting senior management representatives from major shipping firms including BW Fleet Management, Gearbulk, Wilhelmsen and Western Bulk, the International Paint team were delighted at the volume of interest and enquiries generated for International®'s two new technologies, Intersleek®1100SR and Intercept®8000 LPP.

Aligned to the event theme of "What's next" for the shipping industry and its ability to innovate and adapt - it represented an ideal opportunity to showcase Intersleek®1100SR, the first biocide free fouling control coating featuring unique patented slime release technology, and Intercept®8000 LPP, a brand new biocidal antifouling featuring patented Lubyon® technology that delivers predictable long term performance.

"The exhibition was a huge success for International® with some great enquiries and sales lead to follow up," said John Knutsen, Marine Manager for the Nordic region. "It is always good to see both existing and prospective customers visiting the stand and showing a keen interest in our new technologies."

Networking remains a key focus of the event and was the driving force behind the two new additional Nor-Shipping 2013 elements - Nor-Shipping Island, a gathering of many social events to one central area; and Nor-Shipping Forum, an intimate arena for ship-owners to share and discuss business insight. International® Marine Coatings now looks forward to planning an even more successful Nor-shipping 2015.
