Neptune Annual Care offers regular hull cleaning service with ROV/robotic ship cleaning technology. Ensure good performance of your vessel throughout the year.
Annual Vessel Care with Advanced Robotic Ship Cleaning Technology
Maintaining peak performance and maximum lifespan for vessels requires proactive, continuous care. Our company provides customized Annual Care Programs utilizing robotic technology to make year-round maintenance and “hull cleaning service” efficient and affordable for ship owners. Discover how our automated “robotic ship cleaning” and “ROV ship cleaning” methods can optimize your annual costs while ensuring your vessels always operate at their best.
Customized Programs for Comprehensive Annual Care
Each vessel and owner has unique priorities for maintenance. After analyzing these specific requirements, our experts tailor Annual Care Programs that allow personalized, worry-free vessel upkeep. Core elements of our programs include:
- Hull Cleaning – Our ROVs conduct thorough “robotic ship cleaning” of running gear, propellers and all submerged surfaces whenever needed.
- Niche Area Cleaning – Our divers meticulously clean obscures spaces like sea chests by hand.
- Inspections – We survey hulls and examine niche areas to identify maintenance needs.
- Coating Care – Applying, repairing and polishing specialized anti-fouling coatings.
- Maintenance Training – We train your crews in optimal cleaning methods and equipment operation.
Based on factors like vessel type, coatings, operational profile and environmental regulations, we customize the scheduling, techniques and services in your program for maximum efficiency.
Advanced Robotic Ship Cleaning – At the Core of Vessel Care
While programs are tailored, robotic underwater cleaning is a universal need for ongoing hull maintenance. Our remote-controlled ROVs outfitted with cameras, sensors and cleaning tools can rapidly and thoroughly clean a ship’s hull anywhere, anytime, without costly dry docking.
Key advantages our advanced “ROV ship cleaning” systems provide include:
- Access all underwater surfaces from keel to waterline regardless of draft
- Maneuverable to clean complex geometries and confined spaces
- Clean efficiently in port without interfering with operations
- Remove fouling thoroughly while protecting coatings
- Operate in challenging environments like busy harbors and strong currents
By keeping hulls clean of drag-inducing marine growth, our robotic cleaning optimizes fuel economy, speed and maneuverability for peak performance. It also eliminates unplanned downtime and repairs caused by excessive fouling buildup.
Customized Technology and Processes
We leverage the latest robotic technology while tailoring it to meet each vessel’s needs. Our R&D team works directly with manufacturers to customize ROVs with features like:
- Hull-adapted frames, cameras and sensor packages
- Specialized brush designs and cleaning tool attachments
- Hull follower navigation and auto-cleaning capabilities
- Extended battery systems for continuous operation
We also optimize cleaning procedures based on the vessel. Custom operational plans specify optimal cleaning routes, techniques and quality control measures developed through experience with the vessel type.
By combining tailored technology and processes, we can fulfill the specialized cleaning requirements of any vessel. Our innovations in “robotic ship cleaning” continually raise the bar for efficiency, safety and repeatability.
