Ship hull cleaning firm Fleet Cleaner has successfully cleaned the hull of Spliethoff’s Fagelgracht while the ship was berthed in the Port of Rotterdam, the company said.

The cleaning process, which used a recently-developed concept allowing for underwater cleaning without divers, saw both vertical sides of the vessel cleaned with Fleet Cleaner’s robot system.

The use of the cleaning company’s navigation systems meant that operations could continue during the ship’s clean, and, by allowing a small distance between the vessel and the quayside, both sides could be cleaned with the robot system without any effect on planned cargo operations at the terminal.

Instead of using brushes, the robot is equipped with rotating, high-pressure waterjets, meaning that a vessel’s coating does not sustain damage while being cleaned with the utensils.

The Fleet Cleaner system also includes a waste water removal and treatment function.

Spliethoff assisted in supporting the first demonstration on the general cargo vessel.

“A clean hull helps to reduce drag and therefore reduces fuel costs and CO2 emissions significantly, two matters that are highly valued by Spliethoff,” said Karel van Zijl from the company’s business development department.

Fleet Cleaner’s cleaning service is offered 24/7 in all Dutch ports.
