Hull fouling management

The growing concern of the impacts from hull fouling may lead to new efforts to control the potential transfer of invasive species on ship hulls. This will entail work to establish knowledge for decision-making and have consequences for how authorities (and IMO) will regulate and enforce this area. Implications for shipowners are to be expected in terms of developing and applying new administrative management approaches, technical hull cleaning methods and choice of antifouling applications.
The rise of hull fouling on the regulatory agenda and in companies providing in-water cleaning combine a number of key areas of expertise in LITEHAUZ, hereunder; policy and guideline development, management of risk of transfer of invasive species, impact-, risk- and hazards assessment of chemicals (antifouling agents) and BAT assessments.
Whether you are from the public or private sector, let LITEHAUZ be your partner to find the optimal solutions in terms of environmental impact, costs and administrative ease.
