IMO approvals for 3 new cleaning chemicals

Navadan has successfully added customer driven amendments to our cleaning chemicals product line. The driver behind the decision is that not all clients have a total problem that requires a total solution.

Meeting complex customer needs is a must for Navadan, and for our flexibility. Therefore, Navadan has met an increased demand for cost-effective cleaning chemicals that are targeted cleaning operations of less density.

Naturally, cleaning operations differ depending on previous cargoes and current residue-density, thus not all scenarios require heavy duty cleaning chemicals.

We are pleased to obtain IMO approvals for the following cleaning chemicals:
