HEMPEL received the prestige Water Revolution Foundation Sustainability Certificate at Monaco Yacht Show for the antifouling Hempaguard X7 as a sustainable solution.
Hempaguard X7 is not only the first antifouling to receive this certificate but was exhibited alongside 13 selected companies with sustainable solutions for Superyachts at the Monaco Yacht Show Sustainability Hub 2022.
Besides a proven track record on over 3000 vessels, corresponding CO2 saving of 27 million tones, Hempaguard X7 has successfully been introduced as an ideal solution for superyachts, including those with long idle times (max 120 days), allowing an extended service interval of up to 60 months.
“The joint effort this company is making to ensure our product solutions to be more efficient and effective, while respecting the environment, the constant work on developing new technologies to help make that happen has finally been recognized by, not only Water Revolution Foundation, but the Yacht industry as well. We have presented X7 at Monaco Sustainability Hub among 13 chosen companies who are leading the way and driving the change to a more sustainable world in general. Receiving the Water Revolution Foundation certificate is another proof Hempel has been recognized as a trusted sustainable coating partner.” says Tino Rikkert, Hempel Yacht Global Director.
Water Revolution Foundation claims there are more sustainable solutions available today than most yachting professionals are aware of. If these solutions were to be implemented, an overall reduction in environmental impact could be achieved immediately. That is why they are sharing sustainable solutions, systems, knowledge and best practices in order to increase their adoption and fast-track sustainability, which is of a great value to the industry.
“We welcome Hempaguard X7 as a verified sustainable solution and one of the first entries to our database of products that can prove their environmental credentials. We want to promote those that make a significant difference in driving sustainability within the Superyacht sector” said Robert van Tol, Executive Director, Water Revolution Foundation.
