Yang Ming Make the Right Choice with Intersleek

Published on 2009-05-12. Author : SpecialChem

In accordance with their environmental policy Yang Ming decided to upgrade and coat two newbuilding projects with Intersleek 900 foul release system.

Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation (Yang Ming) originally established in 1972, now has a fleet of 95 vessels, mainly containerships and bulk carriers, representing a total tonnage of 4.8 million DWT.

Environmental protection is high on Yang Ming's agenda with a policy which includes complying with domestic environmental regulation and international convention in order to prevent pollution.

In accordance with this policy Yang Ming decided to upgrade and coat two newbuilding projects with Intersleek®900 foul release system. Intersleek®900, our premium foul release coating fits well with Yang Ming's environmental strategy, with proven emissions reductions and zero biocides.

Working in partnership, Yang Ming and International Paint, Taiwan, convinced China Shipbuilding Corporation's Kaohsiung Yard in Taiwan to use Intersleek®900 for the first time on the newbulding projects.

The first of these two vessels, 'YM Utility', a 8,240 TEU's container vessel with a 90,507 GT and a speed of 25.6 knots, is the biggest vessel of Yang Ming's fleet. This is also the first newbuilding project coated with Intersleek®900 outside of a European yard. The second vessel 'YM Uniform', also an 8,200 TEU container vessel has now been delivered.
