Lamers System Care has been awarded the Distributor of the Year Award by Sonihull, the world’s leading ultrasonic anti-fouling system.
After an unprecedented year of growth and dealer appointments, Sonihull has revealed the winner of its coveted Distributor of the Year Award for 2019 – Lamers System Care, based in Uden, Netherlands.
“Bob Lamers and his team have always been a driving force for Sonihull in Europe,” said Darren Rowlands CEO of Sonihull.
The Dutch have a rich heritage of maritime innovation and are always at the forefront of developing technological solutions for environmental issues. This, combined with the knowledge and tenacity of the LSC team has enabled Sonihull to really establish itself as a cost effective and environmentally sustainable anti-fouling system for all commercial marine applications.Darren Rowlands, CEO of Sonihull
“We reviewed dealers on 4 continents for this award but, but LSC was considered to have gone above and beyond in 2019-20,” added Rowlands. “Their attendance at trade shows, customer support and feedback for case studies and news stories has been second to none. If they keep up the good work, we’ll be renaming this trophy the LSC Award,” joked Rowlands.
Currently, 95% of all antifouling systems rely on the release of toxins into the environment – this is not environmentally sustainable. The clock is ticking because the world is legislating towards ‘zero harm’ solutions. Sonihull technology has zero biocides, zero poisons are leached into the oceans, zero microplastics are shed from ablative coatings and it has zero impact on other marine life.
Microscopic ultrasound-induced cavitation disrupts the first stages of the food chain without damaging the surface being protected. This action prevents the build-up of algae, slime and bigger more complex organisms on surfaces where biofouling is not wanted. The system is silent and the movement of water on the protected surface prevents the adhesion of juvenile barnacles and mussels.
