Hull Cleaning now Available at Port of Brisbane, Australia

Dear Valued Customer, 

Inchcape Shipping Services Australia are very pleased to advise on the availability of underwater hull cleaning services at the Port of Brisbane through local company Kofler ROV Pty Ltd.  

Kofler ROV Pty Ltd initially set up their business in Townsville in 2018 and successfully carried out a number of hull cleans, however have recently decided to relocate their operations to Brisbane to take advantage of the higher natural traffic through the port.

This is a first for Queensland with hull cleaning now approved by all relevant authorities to take place alongside in Brisbane using the “Hullwiper” technology. 

Hullwiper is a diver-free, cost effective and environmentally friendly high-speed Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) equipped with water jets designed to clean up to 2,000 sqm/hour. The technology utilises salt water under high pressure as the cleaning medium and collects pollutants and disposes in an environmentally friendly manner, whilst maintaining integrity of antifoul coatings. Please see attached for further information on the product.

Please contact Inchcape Shipping Services should you require any further information or a package quotation for port call costs and hull cleaning.
