Client participation in ultrasonic box-cooler protection research

Shipsonic has initiated -or is involved in- different research programmes. Box-cooler protection 30% reduction Our main research focus is on ultrasonic anti-fouling protection of box-coolers. In this research we work closely together with Blokland NonFerro (amongst others). For any clients interested in testing our new methods of protecting box-coolers, we offer a 30% reduction on[…]

MV Polarlys, MV Trollfjord and MV Finnmarken; Norwegian cruise company Hurtigruten testing Shipsonic Ultrasonic Antifouling

The Norwegian dealer for Shipsonic, Naustor Technology (, has struck an agreement for testing of our systems with the well know Norwegian Cruise company Hurtigruten ( We will be testing our ultrasonic anti-fouling systems on the hulls of 3 different Hurtigruten cruise ships. 1) The Polarlys has been equipped with 2×100 Watt, 28 kHz ultrasonic[…]

Protecting floating windmills

Multiple transducers on 1 object   Shipsonic is preparing a project to protect floating windmills against marine fouling. That involves installing a large number of transducers. Our biggest system powers 8 transducers, and our heaviest transducers are 120 Watt. But for this application even that is not enough. We need something bigger.      […]

Measuring signal strength of different transducers locations on a box-cooler

The effectiveness of ultrasonic anti-fouling

Shipsonic™ has invested considerable resources in developing systems with a guaranteed, consistent effectiveness Correct ultrasonic frequency with sufficient energy Our transducers are 50, 100 or 120 Watts. Their frequencies range from 20 to 40 KHz. Each transducer type has its own response frequency. That is the frequency in which the transducer functions optimally. With optimal[…]

Getting access to the sea-chest is complicated and costly

Cost efficiency of ultrasonic anti-fouling systems (UAFS)

If need be, ultrasonic anti-fouling systems can be installed while the ship is moving in the high seas. It can be installed by the ship’s crew. No special tools or dry docking needed. No moving parts either, so hardly any wear and tear. Hence maintenance free. This makes the ultrasonic solution extremely cost efficient.  […]

OSV Sjoborg; fourth round of testing on box-coolers

Skansi Skansi is a shipping company very keen on innovation and experimentation. Shipsonic has installed various systems for box cooler protection on 2 of their off-shore vessels, the Saeborg and the Sjoborg. First round of trials We started in 2016 installing a number of HDS (Heavy Duty) systems to protect the sea chests and -indirectly-[…]

Fides; first Blokland-Shipsonic box-cooler ultrasonic anti-fouling test system installed

Box-cooler protection Blokland-Shipsonic have installed their first ultrasonic anti-fouling system. The system is developed specifically for the protection of box-coolers. The installation was carried out by a Blokland engineer. The ship where it was installed is the Fides. The Fides is active in the Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp (ARA) region. It is a container vessel owned[…]

Blokland is, worldwide, a major player in maritime cooling technology. Challenge For this project, they will make[…]

Research program with the University of Applied Sciences Vlissingen and the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research

Preparing the research set up at the NIOZ premises Research partners The University of Applied Sciences Vlissingen, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and Shipsonic have won a research grant. This research grant is made available by the Dutch Taskforce for Applied Research (SIA KIEM). This is a governmental program to support innovation through[…]

Ultrasonic anti-fouling on sluice gates

Delta-sistems has been part of a consortium that tendered for the rebuild project of a big sluices complex in the Netherlands. For this project, we developed a system of mounting transducers under water on the sluice doors and control them through a programmable logic controller (PLC), in a large, air-conditioned control unit. Unfortunately, our consortium[…]
