    "in this case" meaning "in that case"

    Hello everybody!

    I think that "google translate" is right this time. "In this case" in the bolded sentence should be interpreted as "in that case" or "as a result".

    Do you agree with me?

    Overcoating Antifouling coatings
    Requirements upon vessel’s arrival

    • Inspection of Existing Antifouling System - Hempel’s Coating Engineer will inspect the existing antifouling system and holds the right to reject application of the NEXUS sealer and HEMPASIL/HEMPAGUARD® system if the existing coating does not meet the below criteria. In this case, the alternative system that has been agreed upon will be applied.
    • Blistering/Cracking - Blistering and/or Cracking (localised) should not exceed more than 5% of the underwater area.
    • Mechanical Damages - All mechanically damaged areas should be properly repaired by available tools prior to paint application.

    The source - painting specification.

    But those are not the same!

    I don't understand your question. Are you asking if "in this case" and "in that case" are the same?

    Either could be used and understood in that context.
