AUSTRALIA’S FIRST IN-WATER
HULL CLEANING SOLUTION

We’re solving an old problem with a new approach

THE IN-WATER HULL
CLEANING SOLUTION

WHAT IS THE HULL WIPER SYSTEM?

Hullwiper is the first diver free, brushless in-water cleaning system to come to Australian shores.

The system has a proven track record for safety and environmental standards overseas and as a result is currently the only system of its nature that has been approved in any port in Australia.​

The service has been relocated to the Port of Brisbane with its main hub following customers wishes. ROV cleans can be undertaken alongside on Fisherman’s Island as well as some other berths along Brisbane River.

Furthermore, the Inner as well as Outer Anchorage are an option pending weather. If necessary, the system, can be mobilized to Bundaberg, Gladstone or even still Port of Townsville.

Hull Cleaning in compliance with the Australian Law

Full transparency with all local, state and federal agencies in question

Actively involved in shaping Australian response to the issue of bio-fouling

Fully compliant with the General Biosecurity Obligations

Approved by several Ports for work alongside as well as anchorages and even approved to operate inside the Moreton Bay Marine Parks’ Anchorages

At present this system is the only one on record to be fully complaint with all Biosecurity Obligations as outline by Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF – Queensland) and Department of Agriculture (DoA – Federal) on the Australian East coast.

This includes working within the frame work of The In-water Hull-Cleaning Guidelines (2015 revision).

All our operations are cross checked with state bio-security enforcement as well as Australian Border Force (ABF) to ensure no unexpected fallout from any of our operations conducted on international vessels.

Since breaches in Biosecurity as well as customs regulations are not just on the operators but could also be held against vessel charterers/owners K ROV ensures any issues or question by any of the governing bodies are addressed adequately before any operation commences.

THE FUTURE OF UNDERWATER HULL CLEANING

In a world that is moving towards decarbonisation and sustainability this is the obvious solution. Understanding the need to be cost efficient and fulfilling schedules in the fast-paced shipping environment of any operator, whilst considering providing an option that would help the environment — this is a win-win solution for all involved. Ships reducing their carbon emissions and minimising the chance of introducing invasive species around the world. At the same time the reducing carbon emission translates into reduced fuel costs for the operators. All of this is achieved whiteout interfering with vessels schedule since the work in undertaken whilst the vessel is stopped to undertake cargo ops.
