A test was performed on a 199,99m length 63.495Dwt Bulk Carrier.

For the first time the team from Shiphave did not embark in a port. Our equipment was shipped out to the test vessel on the day before the test. We caught a ride with the pilot on a taxi boat to the bulk carrier at anchorage.

The ship had very recently undergone in water hull cleaning. Primary testing target was to observe performance in the barrier layer aft on a 200m long vessel. The Shipshave ITCH was tested successfully up to 12 knots between Åmøyfjorden and Sauda.

The image is just before ITCH hit the water and perfectly sought its way to the hull and dived. The ITCH was deployed with the winch via the foremost fairlead on starboard side.
