OceanPact vessel uses disruptive anti-fouling technology

OceanPact has partnered with BioRen Technology to combat biofouling on its vessels. Biofouling means colonization by bacteria, algae or sessile invertebrates on the submerged surfaces of vessels.

As part of this collaboration, a pilot project was implemented on the ship Rochedo de São Paulo. A system installed on the hull and in niche areas operates by generating a specific electromagnetic field, which prevents marine organisms from adhering and developing.

This technology offers an effective solution, reducing drag in the water, thereby improving operational efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. These improvements not only optimize vessel performance, but also contribute significantly to reducing operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
