Shipsonic just finished the hand-over of another heavy duty ultrasonic anti-fouling system for use on a SmitLamnalco vessel. This time it concerns the tug Madagascar, operating in the Persian Gulf, and based in the United Arab Emirates.
The system installed is a HDS80, the biggest of-the-shelve system we have in our range. The control units has 2 cooling fans of 80mmx80mm, just to make sure it will withstand the temperatures of the Persian Gulf. The unit powers 8 x 100 Watt transducers, installed on main sea chests, Fifi pump sea chest and strainers. The Madagascar does not have box coolers, it is equipped with plate coolers.
