Sea-going vessels are considered as the principle assets operating in global transport/exploration logistics, and therefore marine paints became indispensable to protect hull’s surface from severe fouling environment in the ocean. In this respect, Dekro Paints has developed relations with the Marine industry. Based on its technical expertise, know-how, and experience gained during its long history in the marine business, Dekro Paints has met performance requirements for paints in all marine areas, introducing many technologies, from anti-fouling paints for preventing fouling adherence to ship bottoms, to corrosion-resistant paints for protecting ballast tanks from corrosion, and protective paints for superstructures that enhance appearance.
The Endeavour, Spirit of Independence is an Independent Leg Cantilever, jackup rig used for offshore drilling. The rig is currently in Saldanha Bay undergoing extensive decorative repairs to the structure.
Redecoration of this structure commenced earlier this year and is expected to end in August/September later this year. We conduct daily site inspections on the preparation of surfaces and the application of products to ensure that the coatings are applied within specification parameters.
