When the polar research ship RRS Sir David Attenborough was launched its hull was protected by the most environmentally-safe hull coating ever developed: our ice abrasion resistant and washable Ecospeed.
RRS Sir David Attenborough is now afloat with a hull protected by the same Ecospeed coating that has protected its sisters, Ernest Shackleton and James Clark Ross, for many years.
The vessel will undertake worldleading environmental research into climate change and ocean protection. As such, the vessel required a fully ice-strengthened coating, without being harmful to the environment. Ecospeed fulfils that requirement.
Ecospeed is a safe, hard-type coating with zero toxic compounds. It eliminates the potential pollution of polar waters with heavy metals or biocides and hull contamination during research activities, which is extremely important to the scientific work the vessel will carry out.
