Wherever your vessel is exposed to raw seawater you need to protect against biofouling. On the outside, the build-up of algae, weeds, barnacles and other unwanted marine life will slow you down and increase your fuel bill. On the inside, marine organisms can restrict cooling water and even damage your engine.

Ultrasonic Antifouling System
NRG Marine uses the latest digital electronics and ultrasonic transducer technology. This system works by producing bursts of ultrasonic energy in multiple frequencies, the energy creates a pattern of alternating positive and negative pressure. Microscopic bubbles are created from the negative pressure, while the positive pressure implodes them forming vapor cavities known as cavitation. The result of the implosion is a micro jet action that creates a cleaning effect on the hulls surface below the waterline. It also resonates and destroys single cell organisms such as algae. Disrupting this first link in the food chain keeps the surface clean and makes it a much less inviting habitat for larger organisms that feed on the algae. The microscopic movement of water also prevents barnacle and mussel larvae from embedding on the surface.
Sonihull8 Ultrasonic Antifouling Technology
Sonihull8 is the latest addition to NRG Marine’s Sonihull range of ultrasonic antifouling systems. Sonihull’s fit-and-forget systems prevent marine organisms colonising solid surfaces that are exposed to raw seawater. With eight independent and programmable outputs, Sonihull8 ultrasonic antifouling systems can protect every part of your vessel or structure from marine fouling. Unlike biocidal coatings and impressed-current systems, Sonihull8 is low cost and low maintenance, with zero poisonous environmental legacy. With one panel and eight transducers, Sonihull8 has all of your equipment covered.
