Aquarius Marine Coatings (AMC) has announced the launch of its anti-foul coating, Coppercoat-Commercial, in the offshore energy sector. The coating, which contains high levels of copper, a natural anti-microbial agent, protects sub-sea infrastructure from hosting layers of plant, animal and microbe growth while meeting environmental and safety standards.
 
The launch follows the completion of a five-year trial funded by EDF Energy and undertaken by Plymouth Marine Labs (PML) in the UK. Although the trial was carried out with a view to support wave and hydro power facilities, the same coating can be applied equally to any static or dynamic sub-sea like fixed and floating wind farms. Further research conducted by PML looked at loss of paint thickness over time and showed that Coppercoat-Commercial was losing just 4.3% over the five-year trial period.
