Drive-in Boatwash simplifies your boatlife. The Swiss-Swedish collaboration and innovation is a step forward in technology. Thanks to the extension of the offer for harbors and shipyards, there is a gain of time and space to carry out profitable work such as renovations and work on engines and technology. Last but not least, toxic antifouling paint can be reduced in the long term, thus contributing to the protection of the environment. Thanks to a clean hull, boats have less fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions. In short, some of the strengths and advantages of SWISS ELEMENTIC and "Drive-in Boatwash": This installation works like a car wash, but the boats stay in the water to be cleaned. The system is installed on a floating dock and can be moored to an existing pier. Underwater is a collection basin, which collects mussels, algae and waste. The micro-plastic is also filtered and there is a fish stop (SWISS ELEMENTIC innovation). Thanks to these facilities, the quality of the sea/port water improves and the underwater vegetation is protected. The installations do not compete with ports and shipyards, but are a complementary solution. Last but not least, life for boat owners is simplified and ports or shipyards can expand their range of services. Thanks to our systems, antifouling paints can be dispensed with in the longer term.
