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.

Shipshave ITCH lets you measure fuel consumption before and after cleaning during the same voyage without data processing.

The integral video camera lets you inspect the hull when the ship is steaming for decision making . This feature has never been commercially available before. The water is clear during inspection and shows fouling and flow patterns around the hull during transit.

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

Hydrodynamics

Hull fouling contributes most to viscous resistance. Shipshave ITCH can clean as often as desired to stop fouling while keeping control over cleaning costs.

Rough paint increases hull drag. Shipshave ITCH use soft brushes, defined forces and defined numbers of cleaning strokes to minimize wear of the antifouling.

Timing

Shipshave ITCH is always ready for cleaning without scheduling.
