Onboard paint maintenance

(Posted on 04/10/18)

One of the world’s leading paint and coating suppliers, Jotun, has co-operated with Seagull Maritime AS, to develop an informative set of e-learning modules on the theme of onboard paint maintenance, with emphasis on in-service treatments.

Corrosion is an enemy of any steel structure in a salt-water environment. One of the best ways to combat this is with the correct application of paint. While major treatments usually take place in the repair yard and form part of the dry-dock budget, in-service maintenance is essential to limit ongoing potential deterioration that can have a real impact on long-term costs. In addition to extending the life of a ship, a well-maintained ship creates a better impression with owners, charterers and inspectors.

“By collaborating with Jotun, one of the worlds leading provider of coating solutions in the marine industry, we are confident that these new hands-on e-learning modules will assist managers and crewmembers to improve onboard paint maintenance. In today’s maritime operations, sustainability and cost reduction are topics we see on every agenda. By doing the work properly, these costs will be reduced, and by using the best coating solutions, sustainability will be maintained,” said Roger Ringstad, Managing Director, Seagull Maritime AS

However, if paint maintenance is not carried out properly, it is a waste of both time and money. Thorough surface preparation is critical and good application technique is essential. These modules will increase the understanding of painting in a marine environment and assist in training a crew in the safe and effective application of paint.

Subject areas that have particular focus in this six-part series are:

  • Inspection, planning and stock-keeping                            
  • Health and Safety                                                                      
  • Surface preparation                                                                  
  • Paint preparation and application                                        
  • Corrosion                                                                                        
  • Paint technology and coating life-cycle

“By having a well planned and executed Onboard Maintenance Program, the appearance and the performance of the coating will meet the expectations of both the crewmember using it, and the owners who invest in it. The ship will be a more attractive proposition to charterers and will be more likely to pass audits and inspections,” said Stine Floberg, Global Technical Training Manager, Marine and Protective Coatings, Jotun AS
