PALS revolutionizes hull lubrication, employing the ship’s own movement to generate a fine-tuned air and water mix. This ‘smart’ lubrication system minimizes power usage by discarding high-energy compressors in favor of minor boost pumps to maintain peak performance when under less-than-ideal circumstances, even with slow speeds or higher sea states.

Every bubble has its role with PALS’ meticulously designed venturi system, harmonizing with the vessel’s propulsion to create a uniform bubble blanket. PALS is engineered to work smarter, not harder, providing full hull coverage without the need for compressors. This results in uninterrupted aerated layer of bubbles, even when traditional air lubrication systems falter under the pressure of deeper drafts and reduced speeds.

Our state-of-the-art performance control system, emboldened by machine learning, ensures impeccable bubble management for peak delivery. PALS isn’t just pioneering; it’s precision personified. It actively adjusts to your ship’s specific conditions, embracing fluctuations in speed, depth, or weather to guarantee consistent efficiency. Additionally, there is no “belch” phenomenon due to hydrostatic pressure equilibrium.

Discover the future of eco-friendly maritime travel with The Armada PALS. Our Passive Air Lubrication System propels your fleet towards sustainable seas without compressors, harnessing your ship’s own motion to mix air and water for significant fuel savings. Experience a swift return on investment while advancing decarbonization in the marine industry, ensuring superior efficiency and environmental stewardship. Join the green revolution on the waves.

Take action now and join the voyage towards better outcomes—for our ships, our environment, and our future!



Shipping is the backbone of the global economy; transporting approximately 90% of the world’s trade volume.


As the industry’s development continues, it generates increasing carbon emissions – By some estimates, Shipping emits as much CO2 as Germany.


The International Maritime Organization (IMO) mandates a reduction in Shipping carbon intensity by at least 40% by 2030, and 70% by 2050, compared with 2008 levels.
