Fleet Cleaner announced that has made its ship hull cleaning service available to all ports in the Netherlands. The extended availability was marked with the hull cleaning of the Chiquita België vessel, in the port of Flushing, which made the company the first one to clean ship’s hulls in all Dutch ports.

As the company explains, the Chiquita België was cleaned during loading and unloading at the terminal, so that the shipping company experiences no downtime at all from the hull cleaning activities. This saves significant time compared to alternative cleaning methods with divers, where the ship has to be anchored outside ports, thus resulting in extra costs.

In the Port of Rotterdam Fleet Cleaner has also cleaned the Giant 7, a 600 ton crane vessel. The layer of barnacles was easily removed from the ship’s hull, during cargo handling operations.

Fleet Cleaner also informed that cooperates with various subcontractors to offer other hull maintenance services as well. The hull cleaning services can now be combined with propeller polishing, which reduces fuel consumption even more for the shipping company, as well as class certified under water inspection by divers, in order to extend dry docking.
