Shipshave: Industry’s first hull cleaning system for commercial ships in transit

The idea of cleaning hulls of vessels in transit is now becoming a reality with the innovative system developed by Norwegian company Shipshave. In an interview with Offshore Energy – Green Marine, the company revealed that it already plans to test the system on ultra-large vessels and ambitiously eyes high market share.

The In-Transit Cleaning of Hulls (ITCH) system — that is nearing commercialisation — is the only one to be applied by the crew while a ship is sailing.

“As far as we know Shipshave is the only entity able to provide the industry with a solution operating in transit. It is also the first solution where it is the vessel’s own crew that will do the work and not expensive specialists,” Eirik Eide, Sales and Marketing Manager at Shipshave, told our publication.
