Safinah’s role was to survey the cargo tank coatings and take appropriate paint flake samples for analysis by computerised optical microscopy.
We were commissioned to develop a method to assess the technical merit of bids from rival paint companies after the owner of a Northern European fleet put it’s coating contract out to tender.
Safinah provided reports and expert opinion in a case where a vessel was left static for a number of months in high fouling challenge waters.
This project involved a vessel that had extensive detachment of the underwater hull coatings.
An investigation into blistering of the cargo tank coatings on a number of vessels to determine the root cause of the blistering.
Safinah was engaged by a multi-national electronics company to assist in identifying suitable entry level market niches for a disruptive technology product to prevent fouling on marine structures.
