PrimeShip-HULLCare is a service designed to provide users with the most up-to-date information collected from classification surveys.

PrimeShip-HULLCare is a specially designed information service created to organize and categorize the staggering volume of information received from all over the world, and to provide owners and managers with hull maintenance information for individual ships. The wealth of information available through PrimeShip-HULLCare helps make ship maintenance planning an easy process.

PrimeShip-HULLCare is a subscription-only service that is available for vessels such as bulk carriers and oil tankers as well as other selected vessels having the class notation “ESP”. Please note that the default setting (the sample vessel “KAIJI MARU”) is only shown in cases where no vessels satisfying the conditions for PrimeShip-HULLCare are found.

For further information please check the PrimeShip-HULLCare brochure for details.
