Ultrasonic antifouling technology for Vitters Shipyard
Shipsonic™ delivered the ultrasonic antifouling technology to one of the internationally renowned Dutch superyacht builders Vitters Shipyard.
Transducer mounting challenge
While finishing the rebuild of sailing yacht Ikigai, Vitters contacted Shipsonic for a Marine Growth Prevention System for their seawater strainers. The seawater strainers are tailor made. No flat surfaces (to install the transducers) and little space available after installation of the strainers themselves.
Customized Transducer Solution
The solution was to use the aluminum adaptors and install the transducers on the side of the strainers. The adaptors were laminated onto the strainers. Then the transducers were screwed and glued onto the adaptors and presto!
Another example of the Dutch maritime eye for detail and quality workmanship!
