With new international standards for biofouling monitoring and in-water hull cleaning (IWC), the topic is increasingly important to ensure compliance with new regulations. But how does the choice of coating system affect in-water cleaning requirements during the 5-year docking period?

This webinar touches upon:

  • How does the choice of hull coating impact biofouling monitoring and mitigation approaches?
  • What are the key choices and decision parameters when evaluating a biofouling control strategy?
  • From an operational perspective what to consider when deciding if and how to conduct IWC during the lifetime of a coating system?
  • What are the risks associated with IWC?
