The Hydrex Group, a global provider of hull services and coatings, has published a free guide to underwater hull cleaning.

Hydrex calls the 15-page white paper “a practical guide to industrial underwater ship hull cleaning” that describes “its value and limitations, and how to institute a workable program for optimizing ship hull performance and saving fuel, with due concern for the environment.”

Underwater hull cleaning

The guide is available in the August issue of Hydrex’s quarterly publication, Journal of Ship Hull Performance.

‘A Workable Approach’

The paper outlines the history of marine fouling; discusses recent influences on the industry, including the rising cost of fuel, shorter drydocking periods and growing environmental concerns over chemical pollution and invasive species transfer; and details what it calls “a workable approach to underwater ship hull cleaning.”

The issue also discusses recent research on marine fouling and the environment by Dr. Dan Rittschof, Director of Undergraduate Studies for Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort, NC.

Belgium-based Hydrex is an international group that offers hull protection, monitoring, maintenance, replacement and repair services for the shipping and offshore industries. The company also manufactures the underwater hull coating system Ecospeed, which carries a 10-year warranty.
