Jotun Brasil Completes FPSO Seillean With 24.000 Liters of SeaQuantum Ultra for 10 years Services

Published on 2008-10-08. Author : SpecialChem

The FPSO was dry docked approx. 5 years ago with Jotun Coatings in Brazil and had Jotamastic 87, Safeguard Universal, SeaQuantum Ultra and Hardtop AS.

Frontier Drilling Operations Manager, Mr. Arild Svendsen informs "The performance of Jotun products and services has been so good that we now see savings. We have therefore decided to go for a 10 year dry dock interval with SeaQuantum Ultra. It is important to us that we during the next 10 years can perform underwater surveys on a clean bottom hull. We also decided to upgrade above waterline with an extra long cosmetic performance of Hardtop PS5 topcoat. Jotun's main competitor in Brazil only suggested a foul release coating system for bottom area and we did not trust this technology for standstill operations in tropical waters. Also the polysiloxane topcoat presentation was very convincing from Jotun".

Michael Bak, MD of Jotun Brasil informs that SeaQuantum Ultra has shown unique performance in Brazil's tropical waters with average of 27ºC water temperatures. We have seen great results even after 5 years, where all of our competitors are failing. We are convinced that our client will be happy with the new 10 year high grade specification applied.

In addition it was great that Frontier Drilling gave us the opportunity to test apply new environmentally beneficial technology in the Jotamastic range on Ultra High Pressure Water Jetted prepared surfaces. These products showed excellent application and wetting properties and we are looking forward in future to see the performance of these products and in general more use of green line products.
