A test was performed on a 5550Dwt Dry Bulk ship embarking in Årdal in Ryfylke while the vessel was loading, and where we disembarked in Bøneset on Karmøy.

The ship had 3 years old biofouling, a good mix og black algae and “green grass”. The Shipshave ITCH was tested successfully up to 10,5 knots. The picture shows the cleaned light coloured antifouling and the uncleaned areas close to the bilge keel with black algae.
