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.

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.
