SEACOAT TO SUPPLY HULL COATING FOR JHSV
The Maritime Executive
Seacoat Technology, LLC Houston Texas has been awarded the contract to supply the underwater hull coating system for the JHSV (Joint High Speed Vessel).
According to Austal USA, Seacoat’s novel SEA-SPEED V5 hard film Siloxane Foul Release coating technology was chosen over soft silicone coatings “due to it’s superior durability, reduced weight, and foul release properties that where well matched with the intended use of the Joint High Speed Vessel Mission Parameters”.
JHSV is a joint use platform to be operated by both the United States Army and Navy for transporting troops and equipment at high speeds in excess of 35 knots.
