    Jotun simplifies customers’ marine onboard maintenance with unique SeaStock Management Solution

    Jotun has launched an innovative solution that brings simplicity, predictability and optimal quality to the process of marine onboard maintenance, the company said in its press release.

    SeaStock Management Solution will see Jotun effectively assuming full management of its customers’ onboard maintenance. This encompasses condition surveys, full ordering and logistics, direct communication with vessels, business and technical reviews, optimizing products for individual requirements, and crew education. It is the first offer of its kind on the market.

    Commenting on the service launch, Habibe Escobar Meléndez, MSc. DryDock & SeaStock Concept Manager in Jotun explains: “Onboard maintenance is an essential but specialized area that requires time, understanding and commitment. Often conducted in difficult conditions, by crew that may lack sufficient training, there is a risk of poor quality application – leading to premature corrosion – and excessive paint consumption. Then of course there is the commitment from management required to order, monitor and optimize the process to achieve the best efficiency, costs and results.

    With SeaStock Management Solution Jotun effectively takes on board all this responsibility and professionalizes the process to achieve optimal results. This reduces hassle, frees up time and resources and, importantly, improves the condition of the assets. The solution gives complete predictability in terms of costs and allows our customers to focus on what they do best, running maritime businesses, while we focus on what we do best – protecting people and property with world leading solutions. It is a simple way to tackle what can be a complex and costly process.”

    The revolutionary solution is tailored to meet individual customer needs. For a set lump sum Jotun takes full control of a company’s ‘paint locker’ and ensures a mix of the best products, while educating relevant crew members, to achieve the best quality finishes, prolong maintenance intervals and achieve significant cost savings.

    Speaking about the new arrangement, a major ship management company in Singapore, which has been piloting the concept, comments: “We value Jotun’s effort to further strengthen their partnership with us through their SeaStock Management Solution. This program is helping us optimize the onboard maintenance of our fleet, have better budget control and improve the condition of our vessels.

    We have reduced consumption by 15% compared to 2016, minimized the number of deliveries and simplified the product assortment resulting in smoother handling from the office and by the crew. Thanks to the quarterly business and technical reviews provided, and the close follow up from Jotun, we are always informed and in control.”

    A spokesperson from DS Tankers in Germany adds: “We have tried SeaStock Management Solution with some of our tanker vessels. So far, paint consumption has been reduced by 17% compared to the previous year and by 11% compared to vessels on a conventional SeaStock contract. We have more control on our yearly spend and we get much closer follow up. We have therefore decided to continue and add more vessels to the program.”

    Jotun, which provides coatings for some 25% of the world fleet, also assigns a professional in-house team to manage each customer and monitor coating condition and quality.

    “This gives peace of mind in the harshest of environments, both operationally and commercially,” concludes Escobar Meléndez. “It provides a full picture of costs and ensures predictability, while slashing management and administration duties. There is a clear market demand for this kind of innovative solution, and we’re proud to be the first paint company to provide it.”

    Jotun is the number one marine coatings supplier globally with an extensive worldwide delivery network. SeaStock Management Solution is available to the market now.
