The system – which is touchless, fast, and fully automatic – sees high pressure water streams used to ensure boats coated with an International hull coating continue to provide the stand-out savings they’re renowned for. It’s accessible to the boat owner through an app, with real time video streaming of the cleaning process. Trials are currently underway using International’s flagship Intersleek 1100SR, which has been proven to deliver unrivalled efficiencies in hull coatings.
Continues Øgaarden: “Recent years have seen the global shipping fleet benefit from significant advances in in-water hull cleaning solutions in combination with high quality, eco-friendly and long-lasting coatings, such as Intersleek 1100SR.
“Our ambition is to share these advances with recreational boat users worldwide to provide them with a system that results in reduced hull maintenance, faster hulls and considerable fuel savings. That way, boat owners can spend more time at sea with optimal hull performance.”
Once the system becomes available, it will be rolled out to boat owners as a subscription-based service.
