Dutch companies develop UV-C biofouling solution

Dutch companies develop UV-C biofouling solution

Damen Shipyards has teamed up with coatings manufacturer AkzoNobel and electronics specialist Philips to further develop a fouling control solution for hulls that uses UV-C light technology. The proposed solution integrates UV-C light-emifting diodes (LEDs) into a coating scheme that emits enough light to prevent biofouling accumulation on the protected area. AkzoNobel and Philips have […]
