28th of January we were invited to perform development testing on a general cargo vessel departing Jelsa for Vats. With amazing winter weather, the scenery in the fjords presented itself as post card image worthy.

In the image we have elected, the bilge keel is shown on a downstroke. Darkness came upon us and we had to fit lights to the ITCH to be able to review its behaviour in the water.

The last test of the day was completed just in time to retrieve the ITCH prior to entering the ice. We plan to study the video footage and data collected to evaluate the performance of new features and adjustments tested during this test.

Thanks to the crew and management making the vessel available to Shipshave.
