With 45 of its vessels coated with International Paint's Intersmooth®SPC, Claus Peter Offen trusts proven technology to deliver outstanding fouling control to its modern, sophisticated fleet. Set up in Hamburg in 1971, Claus Peter Offen is one of the world's largest suppliers of modern commercial ships. Its primary business operation, its container ship fleet, was established in 1978 and includes 110 vessels, mainly operated under longterm charter contracts for leading shipping lines.

Ranging from 1,500 to 14,000 TEU in capacity, the ships are employed in various liner services worldwide.

As the world's only self polishing copolymer biocidal antifouling that offers 4% fuel and emissions savings and over 37 years of proven performance on 33,398 ships, Intersmooth®SPC is the ideal choice for Claus Peter Offen to maintain the operational efficiency for which it is renowned.

Mr. Dietmar Thiem, Head of the Technical Department for Claus Peter Offen, stated, "We have used Intersmooth®SPC self polishing copolymer antifouling products for many years on our vessels, starting with Intersmooth®460/465 SPC and now Intersmooth®7460/7465HS SPC. Intersmooth®SPC products have kept our vessels foul-free and we have the confidence that they will continue to perform for us...we are very pleased with the performance to date."
