Fleet Cleaner Eyes Autonomous Hull Cleaning

Dutch-based ship hull cleaning service provider Fleet Cleaner has said it aims to set an even higher standard for hull cleaning.

The company strongly believes that robotic hull cleaning is the future.

“Already we constantly see that our autopilot can control the robot better than any human operator. However, we want to take this to a whole new level,” explains Dejan Borota, one of the chief engineers at Fleet Cleaner.

“To really guarantee cleaning quality, the robot will be able to autonomously clean the ship, while tracking its path and planning its optimal route around objects by itself.”

The installation is already equipped with a tracking system, enabling operators to follow the robot’s movements on the ship’s hull. In addition, Fleet Cleaner has developed several systems to improve visibility and navigation in ports with poor visibility under water, such as the Port of Rotterdam.

Currently Fleet Cleaner is active in all major ports in the Netherlands, and said it is planning to expand its services.
