Analysis

Hull performance is monitored by scatter plots of vessel speed vs fuel consumption. Variables like cargo loading, current, waves, wind and water temperature reduce the accuracy of hull performance analysis.

ITCH cleaning is done during a voyage. You can measure fuel consumption or speed gains before and after cleaning during the same voyage without multivariable data processing.

Use the integral video camera inspect the hull when the ship is steaming. You may discover hull inefficiencies beyond fouling.

Immediate analysis, visual results and independent execution enable your crew to own hull performance.

Hydrodynamics

Hull fouling increases viscous resistance. Use ITCH to clean proactively to stop fouling while keeping control over cleaning costs.

Rough paint increases hull drag. Powerful cleaning systems can cause paint roughness. Shipshave ITCH use soft brushes, defined forces and number of cleaning strokes to minimize wear of the antifouling.

Timing

Shipshave ITCH is ready for hull cleaning when you are
