Oktober 2018

Customer had to clean the propeller every 6 Months by divers. The plate cooler was fouled every 4 Months. Cleaning it was always a time-consuming intensive job. Besides that, the cooler has a main part in the vessels energy management.

Customer experienced tremendous fouling in the cooling water pipes and crossovers. Everytime, after a couple of Months, the pipes were completely clogged with muscles, barnacles etc. See our business case for a full report and impressive results.

Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht Anemos

Fitted with the NRG Sonihull System

Would he continue using it and recommend it to others? “Based on these results I would say a resounding yes” said Richard. “Before Sonihull was installed the bottom would have to be physically cleaned by divers twice in a season. And the yacht’s performance is noticeably and consistently improved due to having a clean hull.”

“The extreme warm waters in this region normally create a very high, rate of sea growth on the hull and running gear. Upon return to duty the boat was hauled and found to be in great condition with no adverse growth whatsoever on the hull.”

Vitters 43m sailing Yacht Mystere

Fitted with the NRG Sonihull System by E-Tech Yachting

The NRG Ultrasonic System was fitted to the Mystere superyacht’s sea chests which had experienced problems with calcium growth, worm casts and algae, all negatively affecting the efficiency of the cooling.

After a year in service the luxury yacht Mystere’s captain reported: “None of these substances were present at all, and the installation has been a ‘plug and play’ success, which just worked away quietly, and without any onboard attention required.” 

Mitary and coast guard projects

1 x Sonihull DUO

A test carried out by ADSB on a 16 meter last patrol boat with a composite Kevlar and carbon hull showed excellent results.

The test involved 2 similar boats, one with Sonihull Duo installed and one without. The vessels were left moored up within a few meters of each other for a 4 week period.

After the first week a noticeable difference could be seen. By the end of the 4th week, the results were conclusive. The vessel fitted with Sonihull had little or no growth over the entire hull, while the other vessel was found to have so much growth the vessel struggled to get on plane.

As a result of this test Sonihull will be included in all future standard project specifications.

Motor yacht Sibelle

2 x Sonihull DUO on seachest and hull, 1 x Sonihull MONO on 7 meter tender

12 June 2012

“Following tests and observations during the last 8 months the system has outperformed my best expectations, on weekly inspections we have seen no signs of growth nor have we had to clean the strainers only for light debris, we have inspected the manifold and coolers with an endoscope and again no signs of growth which in turn has benefited all auxiliary sea water systems thereafter.”

Dear Sonihull Team,

Just a quick note to let you know how well your sonihull system has worked on my 37 ft Beneteau. Attached is a picture of a recent lift out that shows the huil is a clean, even on the bear gel coat.

The only growth is on the underwater lights that I attached with the flexible sealant Siloflex which has obviously isolated the ultrasonics from getting through!

Sincerely,

Rolando

1 x Sonihull MONO on bow thruster tunnel, 1 x Sonihull DUO on propeller shafts

The aim of this installation was not just to cover the hull, bul also to add extra protection to the running gear and rotating equipment. Prior to using Sonihull this vessel was burning 280 litre’s of fuel an hour, due to the fouling, now with the clean hull being maintained by Sonihull the consumption has dropped to 240 LpH 40 litre’s an hour.

Captain Geott Clarke stated, “lt is fantastic to find an innovative marine product on the market that does the job that it’s designed to do, and as in our case, could be adapted to deal with other problems that arise from unwanted growth.”

Samahani Beneteau Oceanis 37

Fitted with the NRG Sonihull System

This boat is owned by our Technical Director (NRG Marine) and was used for field trials for 18 months prior to the product being launched in to the Middle East at the Dubai Boat show. The system has been installed for well over 2 years now with excellent results. So much so that the speed log paddle wheel has not needed cleaning since the Sonihull system was installed!
