GAC’s HullWiper Coming to Port of Rotterdam

GAC EnvironHull’s hull cleaning system, HullWiper, will be available for vessels berthing in the Port of Rotterdam next month.

HullWiper, which will be demonstrated at the Port of Rotterdam on June 23, is a diver-free remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that eliminates the need for divers to clean the vessel.

HullWiper uses seawater under high pressure as a cleaning medium, instead of brushes or abrasives. Removed residues and harmful materials are collected in a special waste unit connected to the ROV, so waste is not discharged into the sea.

Christer Sjödoff, GAC group vice president, commercial, said: “As the gateway to the European market and a port that pioneers new thinking around the environment, Rotterdam is the perfect location for HullWiper. We believe that European ship owners will continue to see the commercial and environmental benefits of the technology, as already seen in Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Spain.

“Our upcoming launch event and panel discussion, organised in conjunction with the Port of Rotterdam, further underlines GAC EnvironHull’s commitment to the service in the Netherlands, and sends the message that the GAC Group is pushing the boundaries of innovation and environmental compliance.”
