The world’s leading ultrasonic bio-fouling specialist, NRG Marine, has shown the way for a future of poison-free antifouling at the renowned Innovation Expo 2018 in Rotterdam.
The UK-based manufacturer NRG Marine, in association with its Dutch distributor Lamers System Care, were invited to attend the event to demonstrate the Sonihull ultrasonic anti-fouling system. Sonihull does not rely on leaching toxins into the marine environment to keep hulls free from unwanted marine fouling, like algae, seaweed, barnacles and mussels.
Innovation Expo 2018 is a convention that takes place every two years and is organised by the Dutch Government. The goal of the Expo is to promote innovations in all kinds of sectors, but the main focus is on Dutch innovations. Therefore, the slogan of this year’s Expo was “Global challenges, Dutch solutions”.
The Dutch Government wants to promote sustainable innovations in the recreational boating sector. For this reason, antifouling got special notice during the Innovation Expo. The ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, HISWA Holland Marine Industry and Waterways Netherlands focused on innovations in the field of alternatives to biocidal coatings.
