GAC EnvironHull has launched a high-speed, remote-controlled underwater hull cleaning vehicle designed to minimize surface damage.

The HullWiper Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) is a compact system (3 x 1.5 x 0.80 meters) that uses a brushless cleaning technology and seawater under high pressure as the cleaning medium.

The product can clean up to 2,000 square meters of hull per hour without damaging antifouling surfaces and can clean the vertical sides of a VLCC (about 8,000 square meters) in seven hours, the company says.

GAC Group

The HullWiper is a remotely operated vehicle that uses brushless cleaning technology for underwater hull cleaning.

Gulf Agency Company (GAC) EnvironHull is part of global shipping, logistics and marine services provider GAC Group, headquartered in Dubai, UAE.

Controlled Cleaning

The system does not requires divers and enables hull cleaning to be performed during loading or discharge, according to the company.

Its cleaning control system allows the operator to control water pressure and monitor the cleaning process through forward and aft facing CCTV cameras.

According to GAC EnvironHull, residues and harmful marine growths captured during cleaning are collected in a special waste filter unit and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner, instead of being discharged into the sea.

Environmental Regulations

The company says the HullWiper cleaning process is in line with its HSSE (health, safety, security and environment) and compliance policies, as well as local and regional environmental regulations.

"Clean & Green is the spirit of HullWiper," said Simon Doran, managing director of GAC EnvironHull. "In an industry that is increasingly seeking environmentally sound and risk-adverse options solutions, our cleaning service ticks all the boxes."
