Monitor Coatings wins Award for ‘Excellence in the Marine Industry’
On Friday 7th April, Castolin Eutectic Monitor Coatings were awarded the ‘Excellence in the Marine Industry’ distinction at the annual ceremony organised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology and the Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
Castolin Eutectic Monitor Coatings were nominated for their ‘improvement in material performance’ in association to their contract to coat an area of the Aircraft Carrier deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth. Castolin Eutectic Monitor Coatings were trusted with the prestigious contract back in 2014 to provide a non-skid, thermal gas wash resistant deck coating. The scope of activities to be delivered required Monitor Coatings to investigate and deliver a suitable deck coating that would withstand the aero thermal environment and gas wash exhaust of the F-35B Lightning II when conducting a hover transition and vertical landing.
Castolin Eutectic Monitor Coatings were honoured and humbled to have won the Branch award for ‘Excellence in the Marine Industry’, an award which has been presented since 2001 to a local North East company that has made an outstanding contribution in the maritime sector in either job creation, innovation or technical excellence. The award was presented by Hon Secretary of the Joint Branch, Gary Hindmarch, Joint Branch Chair, David Byrne, and Professor Chris Hodge.
Rebecca Allcock, Managing Director of Monitor Coatings, said:
“Naturally, I am proud and honoured to receive this award on behalf of the whole team. Castolin Eutectic Monitor Coatings prides itself on showcasing some of the most innovative surface engineering technology and advanced coatings around today. We will continue to support the Queen Elizabeth Class build program, delivering quality and innovation.”
