Hull Cleaning Services

Ship owners need to keep their hulls free from marine fouling to optimize vessel performance. But that can be a challenge at a time when ever more stringent environmental restrictions limit the use of biocides in antifouling paints, safety laws demand minimal risks and businesses are under pressure to keep costs down.

Fast, efficient and safe. Hull Wiper uses seawater under high pressure as the cleaning medium instead of brushes or abrasives, resulting in minimal damage to the antifouling surface. It also incorporates a unique cleaning control system which allows the operator to easily control water pressure and monitor the cleaning process through forward and aft facing CCTV cameras. The need to employ divers for the cleaning job is therefore eliminated, cutting operational costs and the risk to human life.

Clean and green. Residues and harmful marine are collected in a special waste filter unit connected with the ROV, then disposed in an environmentally-friendly manner instead of being discharged into the sea as is done using traditional methods. The entire process is in line with the BTJ Lines stringent Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) and compliance policies as well as all local and regional environmental regulations.
