Our work to support vital healthcare provision in Africa

In 2019, we forged a partnership with Mercy Ships Sweden to support their charity work. By donating our technology for use on their new hospital ship, Global Mercy, and in future for other ships in their fleet, we are ensuring that the ship does not suffer the negative cost impacts associated with barnacle fouling on the hull.

Mercy Ships is a charitable organisation whose volunteers provide medical treatment and undertake urgent operations onboard hospital ships docked at local ports in some of the poorest countries in the world.
