Ship hull performance
Marine fouling has an immediate and potentially severe effect on ship performance. Any roughness on a ship’s hull that disrupts the laminar flow along the hull will produce drag, fouling accumulation and corrosion.
The magnitude of additional fuel use is quite variable, depending on the amount of fouling, the shape of the hull, and the speed at which the ship operates.Fuel penalties are in the range of 10 to 25 percent.
Algeciras Port authorities perform periodical tests to measure the efficiency of the hull cleaning systems in Algeciras Bay. Our eco hull cleaning system has again successfully completed all required test, conducted by the university of Cadiz, being the company with the best results;
- «The most careful crew, during underwater clean hull operations» (in the words of the technical college).
- We are pioneers in the use of clean oils for hydraulic systems, used to clean ship hull.
- We have been able to collect almost all marine fouling that follows the vessel hull during underwater cleaning.
