Jotun Turkey - Sole Supplier

Published on 2009-12-18. Author : SpecialChem

Palmali Shipping Group has signed a large contract for 10x7.000 deadweight tonnage newbuilding chemical vessels with Besiktas Shipyard. Jotun Turkey won the paint contract and is sole supplier for the entire project.

"Since the newbuilding market is dramatically decreasing due to the global financial crisis, we are satisfied that we have secured the biggest active project in Turkey", commented Managing Director Sukru Ergun for Jotun Coatings in Turkey.

Besiktas Shipyard has already delivered and out-fitted 8x3.300-3.900 deadweight tonnage tankers, all protected with Jotun Coatings. With the new contract, the tradition continues. All vessels in the new contract will be coated with Jotun's new tank coating product: Tankguard Special Ultra.

"We are very satisfied that we were chosen as the one and only paint supplier. Securing a contract of 10 chemical product tankers is a great motivation to our team. This project will be a great reference for Tankguard Special Ultra", says Ergun.

The 10 tankers are the third generation 'Armada' tankers with the RST22M design. The vessels will be delivered between December 2010 and September 2013.
