MarineLine® E-Newsletters

A Look at Trade Fairs & Events

It has been a pleasure to see our many valued clients, and some new faces too, at recent industry developments. To start the year, APC presented at the January 2018 meeting of the UAE branch of IMarEST in Dubai, reviewing the benefits of chemical tankers having their cargo tanks coated with MarineLINE®, which permits easier tank cleaning, prevents tank corrosion and reduces the risk of cross-cargo contamination. The event was highlighted in Tanker Operator magazine.

In March 2018, APC MarineLINE® also attended CMA SHIPPING, in Stamford, Connecticut, USA covering the North American market. Just recently, the MarineLINE® team hosted an exhibit at Posidonia 2018, in Greece, speaking with Greek customers and discussing upcoming new building projects.

Look for us once again at SMM 2018 in Hamburg, Germany, where we’ll showcase our latest developments in cargo tank coatings.

Technical Bulletin Highlights Inspection of
8-year MarineLINE® Coating

When the tanker, M/T Hatice Ana, owned by Mercan Shipping, arrived in 2017 at the CEKSAN Shipyard in Turkey, the MarineLINE® inspection team was ready to carry out an onboard inspection to check on the general conditions of the cargo tank coatings. These cargo tanks were originally coated with MarineLINE ® in 2009.

The conditions of the tank coatings looked very good and no coating repairs were conducted during the dry docking. The shipowner was pleased with the results of the tank inspection and the condition of the MarineLINE® coating carrying a range of chemicals that are shown in the Technical Bulletin PDF.
