HullBadger2

Specifications

The SeaBadger cleans the hull in a minimum of time using rotating discs with high pressure nozzles.

More than just a ROV

Locations

Currently we are testing our equipment in Panama with Svitzer. In 2021 we will begin producing the first batch whereafter we will find the right ports for this leading edge hull cleaning technology.

UPCOMING EVENTS

WORLD OZONE DAY – September 16th

 

To make people aware of the importance of Ozone in the atmosphere September 16 declared by the United National General Assembly as the International Day for the preservation of the Ozone layer. The theme of this year is ‘Ozone for life’ which messages human beings to preserve ozone layer for future generations. This day is the commemoration day to signing in 1987 of the Montreal Protocol of the substances the deplete of the ozone layer.

What is Ozone layer ?

  • Ozone is a natural gas composed of three atoms of oxygen occurring naturally in the atmosphere.
  • This is found between 20-30 kilometer above the surface of the earth.
  • Ozone layer acts like a blanket as a natural filter absorbing the sun’s ultraviolet rays and protecting the living beings.
  • Dobson is the international unit to measure the thickness of Ozone layer. According to environment specialists it’s average thickness mandatory 300 db but in present it exists 220 db.

Depletion in Ozone layer……Major concern ?

Depletion in Ozone layer became a matter of concern in the late 1970’s. This layer is concern for the scientists for past few decades. Scientists have found a hole in the Ozone layer over Antarctica.The depletion of Ozone layer and Ozone hole has created a deep concern worldwide with increase in cancer risks and other harmful effects n humans and the environment. Ozone depletion is the gradual thinning of the ozone layer meaning less protection from the sun’s UV rays, which is caused by the releases of gases like chlorine, bromine, CFC, solvents etc. CFC mostly uses in industries, especially these are used in refrigerators and home insulations.

Causes and effects of the ozone depletion:

  1. There are several effects of ozone depletion.It affects human health as causes of skin cancer, asthama, and human immune system too. In recent study also found that Eye’s Corina and Lense also disturbs by UV rays.
  2. .In the marine system, damage has been seen in development stages of fishes and also harms the reproduction system.
  3. Plants photosynthesis reaction and biological decomposers which play role to clean environment, also affected by sun’s UV rays.

 

Insights

January 2021 BIMCO introduced the in-water hull cleaning with capture standard. An important step towards less emissions, cleaner oceans and diver safety

The answers to the question, “How might the roughness of biofouling and fouling-control coatings be related to full-scale ship resistance and powering?” is here discussed thoroughly. The state-of-the-art and novel experimental and numerical methods are  presented, along with the future directions in research on the issue.

What our customers says

1516851004254

After 10 years of cleaning ships, testing all available systems and methods, we finally found the perfect solution, the SeaBadger, simply

  • Safest
  • Fastest
  • Strongest

And the only ROV which can take all known marine growth, including severe hard growth, the only ROV which collects and brings the debris to the surface, we have successfully cleaned everything from Cruiseships in Bahamas and the Caribbean  to Tankers and Bulkers in the Pacific, with nothing but 100% satisfaction from us and all our clients.
