Hull performance is currently monitored by plots of vessel speed vs fuel consumption. Cargo loading, current, waves and wind 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 to 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.


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. Many ships will downrate engines to comply with IMO GHG regulations in the coming years. ITCH will help you maintain your schedule while complying.
