Wherever there is unwanted marine biofouling. From tugboats to oil tankers, wind farms to fish farms, Sonihull is working with industry leaders to create cost-effective antifouling solutions that reduce drag, cut fuel consumption, increase service intervals and leave no poisonous environmental legacy.
Unlike biocidal coatings and impressed-current systems, Sonihull is low cost, low maintenance with zero poisonous environmental legacy.
From hulls, shafts, propellers and waterjets, to sea-chests, tanks, keel-coolers, box-coolers, pipework, intakes and valves.
Sonihull is a complete range of fit-and-forget antifouling solutions for any solid surface that is exposed to raw seawater
Effective bio-fouling without the poisonous environmental legacy of biocides or microplastics.
Cleaners of in-situ and onshore fish farming pen nets require reliable, effective water jet cleaning systems to remove algae, waste matter and other organic growth that restrict water flow and water quality, affecting fish health, growth and harvest yield.
NLB’s 225 and 325 Series water jetting pumps are specifically designed for the demanding rigors of net cleaning in the harshest of environments. Extremely reliable, proven pump systems provide up to 4,000 psi (275 bar) of trouble-free, low-maintenance performance. These units can be easily integrated with many existing net cleaning head systems.
Slow running triplex and quintuplex pumps
System designs deliver optimum horsepower
Light-weight aluminum enclosure with easy-access roll up doors
Galvanized and stainless steel key components
Easily integrated with industry-leading cleaning head systems
Commonality of system components between horsepower ranges
The Tassie Devil Tracker 4000 is designed to clean all cage netting irrespective of net inclination and degree of fouling in a single strike.
The cleaning system comprises a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), hydraulic hoses and drive unit. The ROV receives its power hydraulically from the drive unit located on the service craft.
The Tracker 4000 is manoeuvred via a controller much like an Xbox game controller to provide familiarity to the operator. The ROVs motion is relayed by camera to a pair of LCD monitors situated on the service craft.
Net cleaning is achieved via the patented high torque, slow action scrubbing blades on the ROV which may be configured to optimise net cleaning for various environments.
The Tassie Devil 4000 is operated by winch and complements the Tassie Devil Tracker 4000 by cleaning external cage netting in the heavy fouling zone 6-8 metres before the hard line. The Tassie Devil 4000 possesses much of the patented componentry observed in the Tracker 4000 but with the net cleaner winched from the service craft rather than remotely operated. Like the Tracker 4000, net cleaning is achieved via the patented high torque, slow action scrubbing blades on the ROV.
