The Always Clean Solution For Ship Hull Maintenance
EverClean uses proprietary robot technology as the enabling factor to scale a safe, efficient and intelligent solution to the age old problem of biofouling on ships on your fleet.
EverClean allows us to offer vessel owners a revolutionary new way to manage their fleet’s hull performance and condition. By maintaining an always clean hull, we change the entire dynamic around hull maintenance from an inefficient, episodic or reactionary model, to an always clean intelligence-based model.
EverClean and the concept of an always clean hull offered by Greensea IQ, is the first robotics as a service subscription of its kind and stands in stark contrast to the inherently harsher and larger manually operated or diver assisted reactive systems currently being used today.
The EverClean robots carry out cleaning operations with unmatched precision, resulting in minimal repetition and accurate data collection to deliver a hull condition report after each service. Offering a distinct “always clean hull” maintenance solution.
EverClean Delivers Value
- On average customers reduced fuel consumption by 6.4% following an EverClean service.
- 2022 customers averaged 90% 30 day ROIs
- EverClean customers reduced emissions by 6.4%
- Significant financial savings potential for reducing emissions and receiving passing CII rating.
- Minimized Dry dock intervals with Intelligence based planning.
- Avoid heavy fouling and harsher cleaning methods extending coating life with continuous maintenance.
- Extended range on single fueling (simplified logistics).
- Minimize downtime by improving maintenance decisions through collected EverCleanIQ.
- By habitually removing slime, hard, macrofouling is denied a biologically conducive place to settle & thrive.
- EverClean’s approach is backed by academic research.
The most straightforward way to reduce emissions is to reduce fuel consumption. Fuel consumption can be reduced through efficient operations, including ensuring the hull is as hydrodynamically efficient as possible.
Once built and painted, the hull needs to be kept as clean as possible. Any growth on the hull will have a negative impact on performance. A recent report published by the IMO’s Glofouling Partnership has indicated that a very thin layer of slime (approx 0.5mm thick) covering 50% of the hull can increase emissions as much as 20-25%.
Simply by removing biofouling as a variable and keeping it off, EverClean delivers a new flattened performance baseline so you can stop monitoring noisy data looking for key events in perpetually normalizing data sets and discover small issues before they become big problems.
Invasive Species Control
Equally significant is the impact of biofouling and the potential transport of invasive species from port to port. The Australian biofouling management requirements, stipulating that incoming ships to address biofouling; through proof of having a biofouling management plan, having cleaned the vessel of all biofouling within the past 30 days, or use of an Australian-approved alternative biofouling control method.
While Australia is out in front with published guidance, the IMO’s Glofouling Partnerships Project is working on a global scale raising awareness and driving regulations to help protect the world maritime environment.
EverClean’s always clean approach will support compliance with these, and similar, regulations and over time provide the aggregate data to create a predictive fouling and a bio-security model, benefiting the global community by providing valuable insights into the prevention of fouling and the maintenance of bio-security standards.
Understand the impact of maintaining an always clean hull.
Delivered as part of the EverClean service, EverClean IQ is our groundbreaking data reporting solution designed to assist commercial vessel owners in understanding the general health of their hulls based on the data collected during routine EverClean service.
As the EverClean IQ platform evolves our users will be able to purchase additional detailed data sets being collected during cleaning operations that can provide a high level of change detection and inform very accurate predictive analytics.
EverClean IQ will enable you to make more accurate decisions about preventative maintenance and repairs, pre drydock planning and provide a validation tool of a clean hull for bio security regulations all saving you time and money.
