The Silverstream System, an air lubrication technology for shipping, is a unique system that reduces frictional resistance between the water and the hull surface, dramatically reducing fuel consumption and associated emissions.
Cruise operators are proactively looking to minimise the environmental impact of their operations without negatively impacting services. They are doing this by getting ahead of regulations and implementing proven clean technologies that increase efficiencies and reduce fuel consumption and associated emissions. Air lubrication technology is one of the most comprehensively described eco-efficiency technologies validated by the United Nations International Maritime Organisation. The Silverstream® System is also the only proven air lubrication technology that is applicable for both new build and existing vessels.
