Jotun and Dunkirk
Last summer, the major motion picture ’Dunkirk’ featured two vessels coated by Jotun. The D/S Rogaland, a steamship completed in 1929, was re-painted to mimic a World War II hospital ship with coatings donated by Jotun. The second, MLV Castor, was constructed by the Dutch Royal Navy in 1950 and has a rich history. While neither vessel won an Academy Award, we take pride in Jotun’s support for historic vessels!Jotun is a leading provider of coating solutions to the global marine fleet.

Onboard maintenance is often carried out at short notice without a great deal of planning. This may lead to an insufficient coating result. By having a well planned and executed Onboard Maintenance Program, the appearance and the performance of the coating will meet your expectations. As a result, maintenance intervals will be longer and the vessel will have a better cosmetic appearance throughout its lifetime. Long term paint consumption and maintenance cost will be reduced and the crew will spend less time on paint jobs. Ultimately, vessel lifetime can be prolonged and cost during dry-docking will be reduced.
