Jotun Hull Skating Solutions

Always clean hull – for the most challenging operations

The HullSkater technology is based on KONGSBERG’s long experience within marine robotics and remote operations, resulting in more energy efficient operations and reduced CO2 emissions.

The HullSkater is a revolutionary and climate friendly solution utilizing proactive cleaning of the hull.

If 25% of ships in challenging operations convert to HSS by 2030 (same as Jotun’s share of total antifouling market today), this would result in a CO2 emissions reduction of at least 10 million tons per year – equal to around a quarter of total Norwegian CO2 emissions in 2018.

This means that if all ships in challenging operations converted to HSS, this would result in CO2 emissions reduction of at least 40 million tons per year – equal to the total Norwegian CO2 emissions in 2018.
