AIDAcara provides first full cruiseship reference for AQUATERRAS biocide-free antifouling

Nippon Paint Marine has successfully applied its novel Aquaterras hull coating to AIDA Cruises’ 38,531gt cruise vessel AIDAcara. It is the first-ever full application of the biocide free, self-polishing (SPC) antifouling to a cruise ship.
AIDA Cruises’ decision to use the coating follows the success of test patches on a number of Carnival Corporation cruise vessels. Nippon Paint’s research has shown that use of Aquaterras can potentially reduce fuel consumption by more than 10% compared to standard SPCs, due to the coating’s ultra-smooth surface and low friction attributes.
