Revisiting a Swedish maritime startup, now noted on NASDAQ
Antifouling coatings are necessary to protect a ship’s hull from attaching marine organisms. Ship owners need marine coating solutions that deliver fouling prevention for vessels with differing activity levels, shipping routes and construction.
Selektope® is a unique biocide that, through biotechnology, creates the possibility of more sustainable and efficient marine paint systems.
When attached to a ship’s hull, barnacles harm the hydrodynamic drag. The hard shells cause increased friction between the hull and water, directly related to increased fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
