The insertion of such technology meant the potential for fleet owners and operators to save hundreds of thousands by improving speed and fuel economy while also utilizing a ‘green’ product. Over the past several years within the commercial marine markets, HullSpeed® coatings have had numerous highly successful applications, some of which saw speed improvements up to 9% and fuel savings up to 7%.
