Hull Cleaning 


The Benefits of Hull Cleaning

Saving fuel and therefore money is the primary reason for making underwater hull cleaning a fundamental area of maintenance and planning.

A build up of marine fouling particularly a prolific build up of 'hard growth' can result in turbulence, cavitation, frequently affecting  the performance of speed logs, sonars and all manner of other hull mounted sensors. Fouling also leads to increased drag, resulting in a major impact on a vessel's hydrodynamic performance and hence the relationship between speed, power, performance and ultimately fuel consumption.
