Quantifying the scale of the barnacle fouling problem on the global shipping fleet
Chemical/oil product tanker - M/T Calypso
After 5 years of operation, the fi rst ship fully coated with a Selektope-containing antifouling paint went in for regular maintenance at a Chinese shipyard. The hull was completely free of barnacles, this after the ship both sailed and laid at anchor in high-risk areas for hard fouling and the growth of barnacles.

Selektope® is an active antifouling agent that is added to marine paints that is characterised by its bio-repellent mode of action which keeps a ship’s hull barnacle-free, with non-fatal effect on the target organism.
