  • Prevent Biofouling and Reduce Fuel Costs in Sea Chests, Hulls and Cooling Basins

    Biofouling growth increases the drag on a hull which results in a ship that uses up to 40% more fuel and correspondingly produces 40% more CO2 emissions. The marine industry globally spends billions of dollars in addressing fouling, using a variety of protection methods such as coatings. LG Sonic, a Dutch algae and biofouling control solutions provider, has introduced an Industrial Line which ...
