POLLUTION CONTROL

Prompt response and ingenuity enable us to successfully salvage valuable resources - protecting the environment in the following ways:

  • Removing potential threats before they can become problems
  • Removing fuels and lubricating oils from vessels aground
  • Flotation of vessels to prevent further pollution
  • Saving cargo and equipment

PROPELLER POLISHING

A smooth, polished propeller will increase your vessel’s efficiency and improve fuel consumption.

Two advantages of polishing underwater are:

  • Water cooled/lubricated abrasive pads are far faster to use than air-cooled abrasives and ensure a higher quality finish
  • The machine creates a suction pressure on the blade surface and lies flat, ensuring a smooth, even finish - no gouges

A written report illustrated with "before" and "after" photographs is rendered after the job is complete and the condition of the propellers is assessed with a Rupert Gauge before and after polishing.

MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS

Our underwater maintenance tasks include:

  • Hull cleaning using hydraulically driven two and three brush units
  • Changing cathodic protection
  • Provision of coffer dams for internal repair

TRAINING

Our staff have completed training courses at recognised educational institutions in these disciplines:

  • Tanker Safety

Their training is continuously updated to optimise use of the latest equipment and to ensure safety of everyone involved.
