LG Sonic Biofouling Solutions at the Marine Maintenance Expo 2017

From June 6-8, LG Sonic will attend Marine Maintenance Expo in Amsterdam to show their innovative solutions to reduce biofouling on ship hulls, sea chests and bow thrusters.

Reduce biofouling growth

By reducing the biofouling growth a reduction in fuel consumption is achieved

Reduce the use of antifouling paint

Antifouling coatings can either be harmful for the environment, expensive and/or ineffective

Reduce maintenance and expensive lift outs

Because of the continious protection of the hull, dry-docking intervals are decreased

Ultrasound to Reduce Biofouling

The build-up of biofouling on marine vessels poses a significant problem such as damages to the hull structure and operating systems.

To provide an environmentally friendly and effective solution to these problems, LG Sonic, developed a new solution to reduce the growth of biofouling by using specific ultrasonic parameters.

How it Works

The ultrasonic sound waves of LG Sonic create resonance around the solid surfaces within the water, thereby preventing bacteria to adhere to a surface.

Biofouling reduction

Prevent bacteria from settling on a surface in the primary stages of biofilm formation. Besides, the ultrasound alters the structure of an existing biofilm, eventually breaking it down

No use of cavitation

LG Sonic products are not based on cavitation. Cavitation may kill bacteria and other organisms but also cause oxidation reactions and may degrade anticorrosion layers.

Safe for the environment

The use of the LG Sonic products is chemical free, safe for fish and other marine organisms and is in line with the ASC standards for marine use of ultrasonic devices.

Biofouling project with the Royal Dutch Navy

LG Sonic has received an official order for the Royal Dutch Navy to apply their ultrasound technology on a marine vessel to reduce the growth of biofouling.

Before the end of 2017, the ultrasonic antifouling systems will be installed on the bow thrusters of two marine vessels. In October 2016, LG Sonic received the PJS de Jong Innovation Award for this biofouling control project. The jury recognized the technology to its relevance and international potential.
