Coatings are important
The outer hull of a ship is not only an aesthetic consideration, it’s also a functional one. Only a properly functioning anti-fouling coating system can ensure your underwater hull stays clean at all times and your ship operates profitably. A proper anti-corrosion coating protects against rust so you can avoid expensive steel repairs.
Navigating the jungle
The market for ship coatings is vast and the promises that manufacturers make are difficult to assess. That’s why CET provides expert consulting on ship coatings. It’s all based on our many years of practical experience. We provide knowledge you can immediately put to work — for everyone from superintendents and purchasers to CEOs and technical directors. We advise you every step of the way from the coating tender process to onboard maintenance. Give us a call today.
CET operates as a fully independent consultant, guiding you through the jungle of vendors and products. The coating and its application represent what is usually the most expensive individual component of a dry-docking. Independent consultation based on real-world experience can save costs and increase the quality of results tremendously.
Up close and personal
We observe your painting work and represent your interests at the dockyard. Because supervisors of coating manufacturers are rarely the best advisors if you’re trying to save money. And shipyards seldom offer neutral advice to shipping lines on marine coatings — we’re talking about a very large position on their invoice, after all. CET-Hamburg gives you a real alternative. We provide the paint superintendents (PSIs) to supervise your dry docking. For everything from the specifications to the execution at the docks and a follow-up report, you’ll save time and money while drastically reducing the risk of coating problems and the ensuing performance impact.
We work with state-of-the-art environment testers and coating thickness gauges. Our PSIs have the highest possible FROSIO certification level. We also have over 50 years of combined dockyard experience.
CET-Hamburg offers independent real-world coating expertise and outstanding dockyard supervision — all at fixed prices.
