Technical Sales Engineer – North America

Location: North America

Sonihull’s mission is to deliver environmentally safe, cost-effective anti-fouling wherever unwanted biofouling persists.

Our Vision

To make dosing the oceans with poisonous biocides and microplastics a thing of the past, to deliver effective anti-fouling systems using the power of ultrasound, To save the oceans, one ship at a time.

Sonihull antifouling systems use the power of ultrasound to protect the inside and outside of marine vessels and structures from
unwanted marine growth.

Unlike conventional antifouling coating systems, Sonihull does not release poisonous biocides that kill marine organisms or use ablative coatings that leave microplastic pollution in their wake. Sonihull keeps surfaces clear using ultrasound-induced non-inertial cavitation, which disrupts the biofouling process and actively prevents barnacle and mussel attachment.
