Armach Cares About Your Coating
February 10, 2022
Armach is pioneering an intelligent solution to a universal maritime problem.
Since the dawn of sailing, biofouling has been a constant problem for mariners. It’s time for a shift from the reactive methods of the past. Armach Robotics is developing the world’s first autonomous system capable of proactive in-water cleaning and inspection.
With the global maritime industry setting new goals and implementing decarbonization requirements, the time to act is now. Armach Robotics is here to move the industry forward with our new proprietary, scalable service solution making us a key partner in the mission to reduce Co2 emissions and attain sustainable shipping through net neutral operations.
With Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service, advanced autonomous robots efficiently navigate your hull removing unwanted biofouling.
While cleaning, invaluable data is collected, interpreted, and communicated back to Armach via 4G or Satellite link for processing.
Our data-driven analytics deliver actionable hull state intelligence reporting, resulting in increased vessel hydrodynamics, reducing fuel consumption and stress on the propulsion system.
It’s simple, with Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service customers receive always-clean hulls and unprecedented hull intelligence. Gone are the days of owning an expensive, depreciating asset and the headache that comes with learning to operate it. Stick to what you’re good at, let Armach handle the rest.
With a reactive maintenance approach, hull inspections are infrequent, inefficient, and lack the navigational accuracy that assures sufficient coverage.
Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service employs robots, powered by our industry-proven navigation and operational platform, to deliver accurate, repeatable inspections that enable actionable hull intelligence.
Fuel costs make up 50-60% of a vessel’s operations annually.
Adopting Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service could save you up to 10% in fuel cost.
Maritime shipping is directly responsible for 3% of the world’s annual carbon emissions.
With Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service, customer’s decrease carbon emissions by up to 30%, mitigate the growth and transportation of invasive species, and stay ahead of the impending universal carbon tax.
Precious time is wasted with a reactive maintenance approach.
An intelligence-based, proactive maintenance regimen removes blockages, reduces downtime, increases time between fuelings, and returns schedule ownership back to the ship.
The majority of vessel owners focus on topside maintenance while neglecting what lies beneath the waterline, cleaning/inspecting hulls as little as twice per year.
Armach’s proactive in-water cleaning service returns complete vessel custodianship to the captain by assuring your fleet is always clean, efficient, and ready for deployment at a moment’s notice.
Armach Robotics boasts an experienced leadership team, hand selected and unified in their determination to usher in the future of ship husbandry.
