Project ID: 506491
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the ECODOCK project. The overall objectives of ECODOCK were:
- to improve the performance of marine coatings during the lifetime of a ship;
- to reduce environmental impact of marine coatings during the ship life cycle;
- to provide independent assessment of marine coating systems with regard to the above mentioned categories;
- to establish a European communication platform in order to stimulate the information exchange of the parties involved;
- to speed up the application of advanced environmentally friendly materials and production processes in ship new building, repair and operation.

The report is essentially an executive summary of the project. It begins with some background on marine coating technologies and common issues and presents the project's objectives. It later explains the project's structure into its interrelated work packages and finally, concludes with the achievements.
