According to Advanced Polymer Coatings’ Chairman Mr. Donald Keehan, the company has signed contracts that will see 64 new ships coated with MarineLine over the next several years.

The new MarineLine contracts were signed in Turkey at the Europort Eurasia conference, with a number of shipping companies and shipyards. Ship sizes range from 5,000dwt to 20,000dwt.

According to Mr. Keehan, the signing of 64 new ships for MarineLine is a significant milestone in that Advanced Polymer Coatings only just announced at last year’s SMM 2006 event in Hamburg, Germany, that the 100th MarineLine chemical tanker had been completed. The 200th MarineLine coated vessel will be completed in 2007.

“Exponentially it is apparent that many chemical tanker vessels will be coated with MarineLine in the years ahead,” he added.
