Just after the height of summer, it’s the perfect time for marine organisms to thrive! But for shipowners and operators, this means their money is flowing out like water because these organisms attach to the ship’s hull, slow down its speed, and increase fuel consumption by 15%.
Looking at fuel prices, the trend for the first half of the year has been strong, even reaching historic highs, making shipowners tighten their wallets. Many experts have also indicated that the supply situation for low-sulfur fuel in the second half of the year remains tight.
How to ease this worry? The answer is hull cleaning! “Neptune Annual Assurance Program” not only helps you reduce fuel consumption through hull cleaning but also saves you even more money! Global top 5 shipowners are long-term repeat customers! “Neptune Annual Assurance Program”
Starting today, when you purchase Neptune Robotics robot hull cleaning services, you’ll receive an additional free inspection and a free professional and detailed inspection report! Limited to 50 ships, first come, first served.
01-Rapid Growth of Marine Organisms, Soaring Fuel Prices! Are you ready for a “big expense”?
From June to October every year, the water temperature in Chinese waters is higher, making it the peak period for marine organisms to attach to ship hulls. During this time, they grow faster, thicker, and there is a greater variety and quantity of them!
For example, the most common barnacles, in seawater above 25°C, can grow to 10 millimeters in height on a ship’s hull in just 14 to 20 days! This directly leads to increased navigation resistance, reduced ship speed, and increased fuel consumption.
Taking a Cape-size oil tanker as an example, when marine organisms attach, it requires an extra $1.34 million in fuel costs annually just to maintain normal ship speed.
In the first half of this year, low-sulfur fuel oil prices have been rising steadily, with an increase of nearly 60%. The extra fuel costs due to marine organism attachment on this ship have increased from less than $100,000 in March to $150,000 in July…
From the current trend of fuel prices and the rate of marine organism growth, many shipowners are likely to face the dilemma of “not cleaning the ship in July, regretting it in October.”
02-Time-Saving, Paint-Friendly Cleaning
Neptune Saves You Money at All Ports/Anchorages!
Neptune Robotics’ robot ship inspection and cleaning operations cover all major ports. They can conduct simultaneous inspections and cleaning during ship loading and unloading without delaying ship schedules, saving shipowners a significant amount in time and operating costs.
With its super-stable performance and strong wave resistance capabilities, Neptune Robotics’ robots can operate 24/7 without dead angles even in complex operating environments like strong ocean currents, lateral flows, and severe weather, all without damaging the ship’s paint.
Equipped with high-definition cameras, Neptune Robotics’ robots can capture high-definition videos and photos of various parts of the ship’s hull, even in areas with zero visibility. They provide obstacle avoidance detection and transmit visual data in real-time!
