New Hull Cleaning System Brochure Offered By VEB Kombinat Schiffbau

The hydraulically operated hull cleaning system manufactured by VEB Kombinat Schiffbau of the German Democratic Republic permits shell plating to be cleaned, derusted, painted and repaired while the ship is in dock. The advantages to the shipyard are: a reduction in manpower; vessel spends less time in dock; existing dock cranes need not be used for cleaning or painting; eliminates scaffolding and bottom of the dock remains free from obstructions; and healthier environment when derusting due to application of closed circuit wire shot blasting system.

The system enables the hull to be cleaned down to the bare metal, improving the durability of the paintwork and keeping the drydock time to a minimum. It offers the vessel owner substantial fuel savings and minimum downtime.
