Case study: Boxcoolers fishing vessel

The fishing boat treated in this case mainly sails in the North Sea: salty, fouling sensitive waters. The vessel has a seawater cooling system consisting of three box coolers (one PS, two SB). The skipper had been experiencing cooling problems for some time, for which he was looking for a solution. Hard growth settled between […]

Nice collaboration with Bijlsma Wartena and Acta Marine

We are proud to contribute to “the most sustainable workboat in the market” with our Ultrasonic Anti-Fouling System! LSC has had a pleasant, professional relationship with both Acta Marine and Bijlsma Wartena for many years. It is therefore extra satisfactory to join forces with the three of us and work on the same project: the […]

Case Study: Propeller Bulk Carrier

In collaboration with an international ship management company, we have carried out a test with the Ultrasonic Anti-Fouling System to protect the propeller of a large bulk carrier. The propeller of this ship has a diameter of 8.4 meters. This study describes the problems of fouling on propellers in general, the installation of our […]

Supervision on the use of antifouling during spring season

From the end of March, the HHNK and Rijkswaterstaat will check private boat owners for the correct use of antifouling. The aim is that fewer harmful substances such as zinc and copper end up in the surface water. Read the full article below: https://www.hhnk.nl/voorjaarscontrole-op-het-gebruik-van-antifouling The Ultrasonic Anti-Fouling system is an environmentally friendly alternative to […]

Is your boat ready for the sailing season?

The cold winter months are almost over. Many boat owners are busy preparing their vessel for the upcoming sailing season. Many boat owners find it difficult to choose from the many anti-fouling methods. The normal, biocidal coating is becoming less and less popular because of its environmentally unfriendly features. Fortunately, nowadays there are sustainable ways […]

Firefighting issues on vessels

Ship fires are increasingly common. In some cases, dangerous cargo is the cause of this on container ships. A worrying statistic is that there is an average of one fire per week on container vessels. On average, once every 60 days, such a fire cannot be controlled and grows into a major fire. In 2019 […]

Increasing fuel consumption due to propeller fouling

Fouling on vessels creates resistance that decreases the sailing speed and is therefore disadvantageous to the efficiency of the ship’s propulsion. If this loss of cruising speed is compensated by using more engine power, then of course fuel consumption will increase. The extent of this effect was not known until recently. Various studies have been […]

Patrol vessel RWS fouling free after one year and two months

Following the particularly positive results on the RWS 78, the RWS 79 has also remained fouling-free. In September 2019 Lamers System Care B.V. completed its second installation for Rijkswaterstaat. More than 1 year later, the seawater cooling system of this patrol vessel was inspected, which yielded an astonishing result. The inlets have remained completely free […]
