HULL COATING INSPECTION
BEVALDIA (Manager of the branches PSOMAKARA & GAMSRO), has at its disposal latest technology equipment including underwater hull cleaning machinery (hydraulic multi-brush systems), CCTV Video, Underwater high-resolution cameras for hull coating inspections and hull inspections. These machines combined with our experienced available technical staff, enables us to provide our customers with high-quality underwater services and contribute decisively to the satisfaction of our customers’ needs to their fleet, saving time and capital.
The changes occurring in the environment (global warming, seas, etc.) have a negative impact on shipping. In recent years these changes have created an ever-greater growth of marine organisms on ships’ hulls.
The warming of the seas has resulted in an increase of marine organisms and their rapid reproduction. These bodies attach to the ships’ hull, thereby causing a reduction of the performance of antifouling paints and their rapid wear. The wear of the antifouling results in the emergence of corrosion, which is particularly dangerous for the ship from both an engineering and economic perspective.
UNDERWATER HULL CLEANING
The company BEVALDIA (Manager of the branches PSOMAKARA & GAMSRO), has developed an integrated response system of the marine fouling problem that accumulates on the hull. This includes: Underwater hull cleaning, which when done on a constant basis (2-3 times per year) ensures immediate profit, and provides:
- Reducing of fuel consumption
- Increase of speed
- The protection of antifouling
- The dry-dock extension
- Underwater inspection for fouling control.
The systematic hull paint coating inspections allow timely measures if deemed necessary (eg. destruction, wear etc…). By systematic underwater hull coating inspections damages which can be very costly are avoided.
