CREATIVE DESTRUCTION MEETS REGULATORY COMPLIANCE

Armada’s energy efficiency solution offers the world’s first naturally aspirated air lubrication system. The system is optimised from technical, operational, and commercial stand points. By taking advantage of passive physical phenomena the Armada’s ALS is able to minimise the power required for bubble production, match bubble production to a wider range of ship operating conditions and utilise the dynamics of system sea water to enable a fundamental step change in the area available for lubrication.

 

Current market-ready systems use high-duty air compressors to develop air bubbles. Armada’s ALS reduces, or even eliminates, this power consumption through the application of a Venturi to passively create bubbles. This culminates in a system that optimises the effect of lubrication, and in doing so provides potential net performance quantifications of up to 12%.”

UNIQUE AMONG AIR LUBRICATION TECHNOLOGIES

Bubble generation mechanism

The passive vs. active nature in which air bubbles are generated and as a result the fundamental control of homogenised bubble characteristics.

System automation

The control by which air bubbles are generated and how this expands the range of operable lubrication speeds.

Bubble Entrainment

Inboard injection of bubbles, and the nature in which air:water mixture is introduced to the hull boundary layer drives enhanced functionality to maximise the area available for lubrication.

Unique installation model

Unlike purely turnkey solutions, Armada stand ready to work with the ship owner to provide the most commercially attractive structure to meet their needs, whether that be conventional turn key, a pure ‘Equipment as a Service’ or some hybrid of the two.

DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGICAL EVOLUTION

- SOLUTION DIFFERENTIATORS -

High Performance

Nature Based Creative Destruction - complete revolution of what is possible with the concept of air lubrication

Economics

Streamlined and simple system architecture drives reduction in both CAPEX and OPEX (as compared to latest state of the art)

Difficult to replicate

System rooted in patented in-house IP, expertise and experimental ‘know-how’

Friendly to operator

System architecture founded on ease of installation, maintenance, trouble shooting and repair

Method of

bubble generation

Maximise net system performance with passive bubble generation

Advanced System 

Architecture

Passive system philosophy nullifies the drag penalties associated with an Air Lubrication system being installed but non-operational

Method of injection

Allows tight control of bubble dynamics and potential to double area available for lubrication

Machine learning

AI capability enables tuning of bubble properties and delivery of ‘sweet spot’ at all prevailing operating conditions’
