ECOsubsea was established by the Norwegian brothers Tor M. Østervold and Klaus Østervold in 2008.
Our vision was from the very beginning to address the problem of biofouling and to safely transform a pressing environmental problem into a business profit for shipowners and ports, by making shipping greener.
With head-office based in Austevoll, Norway and branch office in Oslo, the first pilot station was tested and approved in 2012.
From 2014 we were operating in the Port of Southampton and in 2018 our international Centre of excellence were opened.
For over a decade, we have fine-tuned our innovative and advanced technology and earned licenses for operating in ports with strong environmental benchmarks.
We combine domain expertise with unique technology to provide a solution fully complying with the strictest environmental regulations and are with our services, setting a new standard to cleaning operations and biofouling management for the global maritime industry.
ECOsubsea is the go-to enabler of sustainable marine activities
that creates solutions to the growing ESG market of biofouling.
We recognize that efficient cleaning of ship hulls is better for the water quality in the port and reduces CO2 emissions and fuel costs.” The advantages of initiatives like ECOsubsea will enhance the sustainability of the entire transport chain
