Hull Cleaning Service
in Sri Lanka


The most effective way to improve the overall fuel economy of your vessel is to run a regularly based cleaning program for the hull and propellers. Ceyline Maritime is licensed to perform commercial underwater and diving services, including underwater hull cleaning, propeller cleaning, ship repairs, ship maintenance, water surveys, and salvage operations.

Ceyline Maritime offers fully comprehensive underwater ship maintenance services at highly competitive rates. Our experienced aquatic engineers and diver inspectors understand the complexities of such work.

Our expertise in underwater engineering and repair, combined with expert diving services, ensures that Ceyline Maritime can offer flexibility and cost-effective solutions to all our clients.

Ceyline Maritime’s underwater Hull Cleaning services include:

  • General inspection of the ship’s hull before cleaning work  start
  • Hull Cleaning with cost-effective multi-brush system
  • Video and/or camera inspection of the ship’s hull fouling conditions before and after hull cleaning
  • Written report with photographs of the ship’s hull fouling conditions before and after hull cleanings

One of the biggest problems facing world shipping is, fouled ships hulls. Different species of marine organisms are attached to the submerged hulls of vessels. These marine organisms act by covering antifouling paint and creating a thick layer on the ship’s hull, which destroys and affects its optimal function.

Ship Hull Cleaning Services in Sri Lanka

The purpose of underwater hull cleaning is to remove that biological roughness or fouling. However, a build-up of marine fouling can lead to increased drag, resulting in a detrimental impact on a vessel’s hydrodynamic performance and hence the relationship between speed, power performance, and fuel consumption. In addition, fouling, particularly in the case of a prolific build-up of hard or shell fouling like barnacles or tubeworm, can cause turbulence, cavitation, and noise, frequently affecting the performance of sonars’ performance speed logs and other hull-mounted sensors.

Proper cleaning removes all traces of fouling and does not remove or damage the coating or cause any increased surface roughness. Underwater cleaning is performed either by a diver with brushers or by a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) controlled from land.

Utilizing Piccard brush carts, our experienced and internationally trained divers and marine professionals are ready to mobilize on short notice and perform high-standard hull cleaning services to the ships in the Indian Ocean. In addition, we provide exceptional service in underwater hull cleaning and propeller polishing in Sri Lanka.

Underwater Hull Cleaning

Hull cleaning is performed in a few hours due to our Innovative Hydraulic Brush Carts, which can complete a job (depending on the ship’s size) in about 8 hours in daylight. Hull cleaning includes cleaning of Flat Bottom, Vertical Sides, Sea Chests Grids, and Rudder.

Underwater Propeller polishing

Propeller polishing is an operation in high demand. Careful monitoring of ship performance has shown a 10-20% power-saving achievement following propeller cleaning and polishing. After underwater polishing, bunker consumption savings of 3-8% can be expected
