PRINCIPLE ACTIVITIES

HULL CLEANING

Most of our work is carried out using the scamper system. This system has been specially developed for vessels coated with a SPC or silicone type anti-fouling and we can guarantee that we can remove the marine growth without damaging the all important paint surfaces underneath.

This cleaning system has been approved by all the major paint companies.

PROPELLER POLISHING

 

Underwater propeller polishing and maintaining smooth propeller surfaces are now fully appreciated, but propellers do foul up and for this we use our new improved THREE-STAGE reconditioning system to achieve a Rubert finish better than a Rubert 'A' on the Rubert Comparator.

UNDERWATER SURVEYS

UWSC is formally approved by all the leading classification societies for carrying out in-water surveys. During the course of the surveys, the divers are in constant voice communication with the attending Surveyors/Superintendent.

Apart from these surveys, we are regularly employed by shipowners and marine paint companies to carry out fouling, and paint inspections and also pre-purchase and sale inspections.

UNDERWATER BLANKING


From time to time, sea valves give trouble and when it does happen, it is not always convenient to wait until the next drydocking. It is therefore, essential that sea valves can be opened while the vessel remains afloat. For this, we use our own specially made to measure blanks that fit over the sea chests and overboard discharges. When the blanks are secured in place, this then enables the inboard crew to maintain or replace the sea valves as necessary.
