DNV’s objective was to assess if the use of ITCH of the wetted surface of the vertical sides has affected the speed-power of the Bulk Carrier. The evaluation is based on noon report data. AIS data for the vessel is used to extract hindcast data with information about wind, waves and current.

The reduction in fuel oil consumption of -10% due to partial hull cleaning has been derived thereof.

Shipshave is very pleased to be presenting here within the identified savings obtained by the use of our In-Transit Cleaning of Hulls (ITCH). We belive that the ITCH is a means to improve the vessels CII-rating and should be considered when compiling the enhanced SEEMP.

The Owner of the vessel in question has elected to remain unnamed, hence the masking of the vessel ID in the image.
