Silverstream Technologies has been at the forefront of air lubrication within shipping for over 10 years.
Today, we are the first company in the world to be able to evidence fuel savings from our air lubrication technology, the the Silverstream® System.
In bringing the Silverstream® System air lubrication technology to market, Silverstream has created a step-change in the way efficiency technologies are tested and verified. We have developed the system over a period of 7 years, bringing it from concept through to commercial to reality. This means that, as a company, we continue to be the driving force behind the uptake of credible clean technologies within shipping.
The Silverstream® System is proven and has been independently verified through our landmark sea trails process. This has ensured that ship owners and operators can trust in the fuel savings that we claim from our air lubrication technology, which is up to 8% for larger vessels.
The technology is simple to operate and is quick to install and retrofit with a minimal payback period. It is the only air lubrication system that is applicable to both new-build and existing vessels, and each system installation is tailored to the vessel to ensure it will deliver optimum efficiency gains.
To improve environmental and operational efficiencies, and the industry’s sustainability, ship owners and operators need a choice of viable and proven clean technologies.
Air lubrication technology is designated as an ‘innovative technology’ within the International Maritime Organisation’s Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), further proving its applicability to the industry at large.
The proven credentials of the Silverstream® System, along with third party validation and in-field testing, all make air lubrication integral to shipping’s future.
