About ECOsubsea

Our primary ECOstation is based in Southampton, a port which has one of the most rigorous bio-risk policies in the world, and until recently was closed to conventional hull cleaning. Due to the ultra-high collection rate and minimal hull disruption of our solution we now have exclusive access to this global shipping hub, as well as main ports in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Our solution cleans with collection rate of 97.5%, making it highly efficient and ultra-clean compared to conventional hull cleaning with brushes, which damages paint and releases debris into the local environment.

Key benefits of ECOsubsea:

● Minimises vessels air pollution to 5 – 15%
● Minimises the spread of alien invasive species between continents (identified by IMO)
● Saves ship owners 5 – 15% fuel costs
● Efficient handling of waste from ship hull
● 97.5% debris collection rate under water

The low freight rates and huge bunker costs of the international shipping market mean there is a big incentive for ship owners to clean their vessels in order to save fuel. Hull cleaning also helps reduce vessel air pollution which represents a significant benefit to the environment. However as a result of local pollution and the fear of spreading alien invasive species, local and global policies are closing ports for conventional cleaning of vessels.

Our revolutionary in-water hull cleaning technology far exceeds the environmental standards set by local and global policies, which represents the potential for univarsal access to global shipping routes. ECOstations are built for easy multiplication and handling, and their cost efficient buildup makes it easier and faster for international shipping to form a network and take advantage of increased savings.
