Hull Cleaning

Clean, caring, compliant

Kind to ships, tough on biofouling. ECOsubsea has worked for over a decade alongside ship owners, coating manufacturers, ports and environmental regulators to develop an award-winning solution for clean vessel hulls.

Our remotely operated underwater vehicles gently remove all organic matter without damaging vessel coatings. Simple, efficient and non-disruptive to port operations, the process protects your business and the local environment, with all matter automatically collected for biogas production/recycling.

The technology is proven – with more than 50 000 kg of biofouling removed and processed so far – effective, and compliant with the very strictest port and international regulations.

The highest service standards, the greatest efficiency, the best business and environmental results.

ECOsubsea is here to help you clean up.

  • The product and offerings of ECOsubsea would not only be a benefit for WW ASA but also the entire maritime industry as it will revolutionize the way hull cleaning can be conducted in areas where it has been restricted and or even banned previously.
