3. In-water hull cleaning with complete capture, containment and filtration
Peter Maidment – CleanSubsea Australia

The build up of biofouling on ship’s hulls increases drag and correspondingly increases fuel consumption and GHG emissions. Traditionally vessel hulls have been cleaned in dry dock or by divers in-water with little regard for environmental contamination, but Australian legislation does not permit this in Australia (soon to be mirrored worldwide by pending international legislation). CleanSubSea’s Envirocart system is a remotely-operated hull cleaning robot that completely captures and contains all removed marine growth without damaging the hull coating, linked to a filtration system that filters the effluent to allow clean water to be returned to the sea. In addition to addressing the marine growth removal, this process ensures the protection of marine biodiversity through removal of invasive marine species.
