CII will demand continous improvement

IMO regulations will force better fuel efficiency. Ships may have to downrate max engine power, meaning less transport capacity and less revenue.

Few environmental investments pay back within a year. ITCH can.

Hull performance is monitored by fuel consumption, but is an inaccurate measure. Now you can clean in the middle of a voyage and monitor before and after cleaning.

See the results of cleaning on videos and recordings.

The crew can handle operational hull cleaning. The Performance Engineer can focus on higher level issues.

Hydrodynamics

Hull fouling increases viscous resistance. Use ITCH to clean proactively to stop fouling. Still you keep control over cleaning costs.

Rough paint increases hull drag. Powerful cleaning systems can cause paint roughness. ITCH use soft brushes, defined forces and few cleaning strokes to avoid wear of fresh antifouling.

Many ships may soon downrate engines to comply with IMO CII regulations. ITCH will help you maintain transit speed.

Timing

ITCH is ready for hull cleaning when you are
