While ship owners mainly benefit from our cleaning technology’s paint friendliness, charterers profit strongly from substantial reductions in fuel consumption after cleaning. By meeting the IMO MPEC.1/circ.811 standard for removal of heavy micro- and macro-fouling, it reduces the vessel’s resistance through the water (drag) and propeller cavitation with a consequent reduction in fuel consumption. Calculations provided by Maersk show 5% in fuel savings after TecHullClean’s cleaning of one of their vessels’ with only a moderate 40% hull fouling. With these gains in fuel efficiency, the cost of cleaning will have amortised itself within less than a months’ sailing time. Our expanding network in major cleaning ports ensures that our clients will receive the same, excellent service level on their most frequented trade routes.
