HASYTEC system makes Scandlines ferry BERLIN greener
Scandlines has improved the environmental performance of its hybrid ferry Berlin by installing anti-fouling system from Germany-based clean tech company HASYTEC. Berlin, which operates on the Rostock-Gedser route between Germany and Denmark, was equipped with HASYTEC’s Dynamic Biofilm Protection (DBP) System at the end of 2017. The solution was placed in Berlin’s seawater cooling system and uses ultrasound to prevent a build-up of biofilm, which is the initial basis of all fouling and marine growth.Upload News
