Biofouling control solutions that can improve energy consumption in vessels
Poster (konferens), 2017

All vessels operating in water will experience marine growth on the hull. These marine growth can be classified into macro biofouling (barnacles, seaweed, etc) and micro biofouling (slime or biofilm) . Biofouling will increase the weight and surface roughness of the hull, increasing ship resistance (Haslbeck and Bohlander 1992) and thereby increasing fuel consumption (Schultz, Bendick et al. 2011).
