MarineLine® Versatility Shown in These Actual Cargoes Carried

MarineLine VersatilityThere are many benefits to the MarineLine® coating system, but one of the key ones, if not the most important of all, is versatility.

This means the ability of MarineLine®-coated tanks to carry the widest range of cargoes that exceeds the combined capabilities of tanks constructed of stainless steel and tanks with other types of coatings. This translates into shipowners carrying higher spec cargoes and generating more profit. Plus, with more versatility, it is easier to use all the cargo tanks by being able carry virtually any chemical/liquid products.

Shipowners always want to hear of ‘real world’ examples, so we contacted MarineLine® shipowners, and have prepared four cargo case histories of actual cargo lists and sequences.
