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.      […]

Fourth round of testing on OSV Sjoborg

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-[…]

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[…]

Prototype of the ultrasonic signal strength tester we use to optimize transducer location

Ultrasonic signal tester

Measuring sound pressure; the Shipsonic ultrasonic signal tester                 At delta-sistems we feel we have dealt with all the technical challenges in making a reliable, high powered ultrasonic system. One challenge remains, however. This is: where exactly to install the transducers on the object that needs protection? This[…]

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[…]

Waterproof transducer with stainless steel installation bracket

Waterproof transducers inside the sea chest

Conventional installation Normally, transducers are dry-mounted on the inside of the vessel on the sea-chest to avoid fouling. To protect box-coolers, transducers are installed on top, that is on the water-covers of the box-cooler, and around it on the sea-chest walls. Objective is to protect the pipe bundle of the box-cooler. Installing on the water-cover[…]
