WHO WE ARE

Hull Cleaning Namibia is the official partner in Namibia of HullWiper Ltd. Our Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) provides environmentally-friendly, cost-effective and diver-free underwater hull cleaning solutions to all types of vessels calling at the country’s ports.

 

In addition to providing this revolutionary hull cleaning technology, we also provide a wide range of offshore services with a dedicated team of certified technicians available to carry out servicing on location for inspections, repairs and re-certification of lifting and hoisting equipment.

WHAT WE DO

Our mobile containerised unit, HullWiper, collects and removes marine fouling from vessel hulls. Rather than polluting local port waters and risking the spread of harmful invasive marine species, all removed fouling is captured onboard the ROV’s unique filter unit and deposited into dedicated drums onshore for safe disposal by a locally-approved environmental waste disposal company. The effectiveness of HullWiper’s filter system in cleaning the wastewater has been verified by AMT Environmental, an environmental analysis and consulting company.

 

Unlike traditional methods using divers with brushes or karts, the ROV sprays adjustable high-pressure seawater jets directly onto a ship’s hull at a very high velocity to dislodge waste materials, without the need for scrubbing, harsh chemicals and abrasive materials. Our method of hull cleaning leaves expensive antifouling coatings smooth, intact and undamaged. Cleaning can be done in port or at anchorage, day or night, during most weather conditions and whilst cargo operations are underway.

 

A clean hull improves vessel speed, fuel efficiency and reduces carbon emissions.
