P.O. Box 50
Zevenhuizen, Netherlands

Press release date: December 16, 2013

TQC's Hull Roughness Analyzer is nominated by Material Performance Magazine for the Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award 2014. MP Magazine is a publication of NACE International.

Honoring the most important innovations impacting corrosion control today, the awards showcase progressive technological developments in all aspects of corrosion prevention and mitigation and recognize the innovators who have created revolutionary solutions to combat corrosion and protect vital assets from its damaging effects. Innovations go beyond marginal improvements to current products, services, methods, and techniques.

The highest-rated innovations will receive the awards on March 10, 2014 at the world's largest corrosion conference and expo, NACE International's CORROSION 2014 in San Antonio, Texas.

The TQC Hull Roughness Analyzer measures the AHR value (Average Hull Roughness) of sea going vessels. AHR is the 'mean' of all the vessel's hull roughness readings and is the measure against which ship's performance is correlated.

A high structural roughness leads to a full penalty and increased CO2 emissions. Modern anti-fouling paints reduce the structural hull roughness.  TQC's Hull Roughness Analyzer provides data that shows the "before and after" situation. With these data the expected fuel saving can be calculated.  The TQC Hull Roughness Gauge provides graphical representations, storage of data and survey reports in Microsoft ExcelŽ.

More information about the TQC Hull roughness gauge can be found on the dedicated website: or by contacting TQC in The Netherlands, +31 10 7900 100,
