Fleet Cleaner Set to Launch Its Hull Cleaning ROV

Dutch provider of  hull cleaning and inspection equipment, Fleet Cleaner, has completed its first hull cleaning trial by cleaning the HNLMS Karel Doorman, the largest vessel of the Royal Netherlands Navy.

In the Dutch port of Den Helder, the company has removed the fouling of the vessel by using its ship hull cleaning ROV.

The installation, developed by Fleet Cleaner, is able to clean a vessel during loading and unloading in ports. Due to the use of controllable high pressure waterjets, the coating is not damaged during the cleaning process. This is also confirmed by coating experts during the Karel Doorman cleaning with several coating measurements. All removed fouling is captured by the ROV and filtered by the support system.

Fleet Cleaner said it will launch its ship cleaning technology in March this year in the Port of Rotterdam. The ship cleaning services are offered by OH Ship Cleaning.
