Reduced Maintenance Costs of Ferries



In 1992, Norwegian Rogaland Trafikkselskap built a series of ferries. All spaces exposed to moisture and condensation – the entrance to the car decks, the dry tanks, the trust rooms – were treated with KEFA Coating to stop condensation water dripping.


The result

At the 5-year revision, it was noted that none of the KEFA treated surfaces had needed any repainting or other maintenance. Most other areas had been repainted one or several times. Still after 8 years, no repainting has been found necessary of the KEFA coated surfaces.


In 1999, when three new ferries were projected, KEFA Coating was specified not only to stop condensation but above all for its ability to reduce maintenance costs.
