Abstract
The current demand of coated steel hulls has been monitored to determine the influence of temperature, salinity, oxygen level, alkalinity and calcium carbonate concentrations. It was found that current demand of ships could be reduced as much as 70% if a vessel was operating in tropical waters rather than temperate. The reduction in current demand was maintained when the vessels returned to temperate water but was lost after passing through fresh or polluted water.
