Easy Maintenance

We've designed a user-friendly cradle for the SeaBadger MKII. This cradle simplifies ROV operation and maintenance, allowing a single operator to handle it effortlessly, ensuring both superior results and a easy maintenance process.
One of the standout features that sets the SeaBadger MKII apart is its unique cradle design. This design allows the system to effortlessly flip from side to side, granting technicians unparalleled access to all its components. This not only simplifies maintenance tasks but also reduces downtime, ensuring that your equipment is back in operation quickly and efficiently. Our commitment to providing the best solutions for underwater cleaning and maintenance extends to every aspect of the SeaBadger MKII's design. From its sturdy construction to its user-friendly features, we've ensured that maintaining your equipment is as convenient as using it.


Currently we are testing our equipment in European ports - the trials of our SeaBadger MKII have officially begun!

In 2023 our team has been hard at work, setting new global standards in hull cleaning technology.
It's not just about innovation; it's about ensuring excellence through rigorous testing, quality assurance, and verification. This phase is where we fine-tune every detail to meet and exceed the desired specifications.

What we believe in!

Sustainable goal no 14 by United Nations, life below water

Goal 14 - Life Below Water

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

Goal 14 is about conserving and sustainably using the oceans, seas and marine resources. Healthy oceans and seas are essential to human existence and life on Earth. They cover 70 percent of the planet and provide food, energy and water.

The ocean absorbs around one-quarter of the world’s annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, thereby mitigating climate change and alleviating its impacts.

It is essential to conserve and sustainably use them. Yet, human activity is endangering the oceans and seas – the planet’s largest ecosystem – and affecting the livelihoods of billions of people.

Our ambition

At Hydro Hull Cleaning, Goal 14 – Life Below Water, is more than just a cause we believe in; it’s the core purpose driving the SeaBadger Mk2.

Our dedication to conserving and sustainably using the oceans, seas, and marine resources is ingrained in our mission. With the SeaBadger Mk2, we are passionately committed to making a positive impact on Life Below Water, ensuring a cleaner, more sustainable maritime future for all.

A Cleaner Future for All"

Sustainable causes that IS meaningful to us


With a passion for clean shipping, we provide a safe and eco-friendly future for hull cleaning. Our initiatives and innovative eco-friendly SeaBadger Mk2 are focused around conserving and sustainably using the oceans, seas, and marine resources. 

Key environmental subjects we work for and care about:

  • Clean shipping
  • Decarbonization
  • Clean oceans 
  • Marine ecosystems


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 say:


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.
