After one year interval, the ship equipped with 14 WAIPs showed almost no barnacles in the area covered by Ultra Fine Microbubble.
This is because the area covered with Ultra Fine Microbubble has lesser Drag and lesser polishing stress to the paint than other area.
This is another evidence of the effectiveness of WAIP.
This fact proved that WAIP is effective in paint thickness reservation as well as Main Engine fuel saving.
