Despite an economic slump caused by a pandemic, the climate problem persists unabated. Emissions fell as a result of a temporary reduction in human activity.
C-LEANSHIP has been advocating environmental protection ever since it was founded. We strive to be the leading provider of underwater services while also providing utmost care for the environment.
A vessels that is covered in biofouling will increase its drag and thereby its service speeds, which in turn causes increased fuel consumption and increased emissions.
Life Below Water
More than 3 billion people rely on the ocean for their livelihoods, and over 80 percent of world merchandise trade is carried out by sea.
Rising CO2 emissions are causing ocean heat, acidification, and deoxygenation, endangering marine ecosystems and the people who rely on them, and outstripping oceans’ ability to mitigate climate change.
The rapid growth patterns of biofouling on marine vessels constitute a serious concern. The hull structure and propulsion systems may be damaged in some cases. Biofouling on hulls can increase a vessel’s hydrodynamic volume and hydrodynamic friction, resulting in up to a 60% increase in dragging.
Marine bio-invasions are the source of significant environmental and socioeconomic impacts that can affect fisheries, maricultural, coastal infrastructure, and other development efforts, ultimately threatening livelihoods in coastal communities.
C-LEANSHIP helps by removing biofouling on the ship’s hull during cleaning, as well as collecting and filtering the biofouling out from the system’s effluent. This helps reduce the risk of invasive species and thereby protects the local environment in which we operate. All collected and filtered material is safely stored on our workboat and will be disposed of by a licensed contractor on land.
