By completing 2,000 vessel applications of Hempaguard X7, Hempel has reduced shipown-ers’ fuel consumption by 7.6 million tons, lowering fuel costs by at least USD 2.6 billion and CO2 emissions by 23.5 million tons.

Since its launch in 2013 by world-leading coatings manufacturer Hempel, the Hempaguard X7 hull coating has been applied over 2,000 times. Hempel has continuously documented Hempaguard X7’s ability to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for shipowners, and now the exact impact has been calculated.

Michael Hansen, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer, comments: “Reaching this important milestone of 2,000 full ship applications in just seven years proves the value of the solution for our customers. Simultaneously, it emphasises the importance of developing solutions that help our customers deliver on their sustainability agendas while also reducing their costs tremendously. One of the key elements in our new strategy is to contribute to a more sustainable direction in the world. Solutions like Hempaguard will be essential to that."

Hempaguard X7 is based on Hempel’s patented Actiguard® technology, which combines the smoothness of a silicone coating with efficient fouling preventing biocides in a single coat. Hempaguard X7 was the first fouling defence coating to use this innovative technology, and its significance has been immense for Hempel and the marine industry in general.

“By delivering fuel savings of at least USD 2.6 billion and reducing CO2 emissions by 23.5 million tons equivalent to the emissions from 1.2 million passenger cars per year since 2013 we’ve confirmed our position within fuel reducing coatings, fouling defence systems and hull coatings. I’m proud to say that we lead the way in documented fuel efficiency in the marine industry,” says Michael Hansen.

The 2,000th application of Hempaguard X7 was completed on the TORM Titan.

Calculation method
The savings related to the 2,000 vessel applications have been calculated by evaluating each vessel individually. For each ship coated with Hempaguard X7, Hempel estimated the actual yearly consumption using numbers from the Fourth IMO GHG Study 2020. The IMO consumption estimates are based on voyage data for all ships and consists of yearly averages divided into ship types.
