Nereus Subsea provides top-quality underwater hull cleaning services in Singapore to ensure that vessels maintain their health and integrity. When ships and boats partially reside under seawater or freshwater, they are prone to hull fouling caused by marine or aquatic organisms. Biofilms are formed on the structures, leading to the attachment of fouling organisms on subsurface structures, including propellers, rudders, inlet and outlet ports etc.

With regular underwater hull cleaning services, Nereus Subsea removes the biofilms and fouling organisms from the hulls of vessels, helping them to maintain better operational and economic performance. This helps to reduce fuel consumption and optimise journey time, which can save you money in the long run.


Nereus Subsea is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and tools to provide efficient and effective underwater hull cleaning in Singapore. With our services, you can rest assured that your vessel will be in top condition, and you can focus on your operations without any interruptions.

By keeping your vessel's hull and propeller clean, you can ensure that it operates at its best, with improved energy efficiency and reduced drag. This can result in significant cost savings over time, as you'll require less fuel to operate your vessel and can optimise journey times.

Additionally, studies have shown that an idle vessel tends to gather more biofilm, making routine underwater hull cleaning even more crucial for maintaining your vessel's integrity and performance.

underwater hull cleaning

Nereus Subsea is an expert in underwater hull cleaning services. We offer you a variety of services in this regard, including but not limited to the following –

The most common ways include manual hull cleaning, powered rotary brush cleaning systems, and noncontact cleaning technology. The first method, manual hull cleaning, is usually performed on small ships such as recreational yachts and fishing boats. This is usually done by workers on the ship or even by the owners themselves. Based on the amount and nature of the biofouling, including slime, biofilm, etc., and the type of antifouling coating already present on the vessel, the manual hull cleaning many be carried out using cloths, brushes, or scraping devices.

The second method is the powered rotary brush cleaning system, which uses mechatronics equipment, especially for large vessels. In such scenarios, large brush devices are preferred for quickly cleaning flat or slightly curved areas of the hull, and small brushes are utilised for better results when cleaning the propeller. Bigger vessels might even choose a combination of multiple brushes for best results.

Thirdly, there is the simple cleaning tactic, where unpowered cleaning brushes are used to frequently remove deposits from the surface of ships. This is done manually and routinely to ensure that the surface remains clean and healthy. It is also simpler than the other two methods but cannot be used for larger surfaces or for harder coats of biofouling agents.

Finally, under the contactless underwater cleaning method, there are techniques like high-pressure water jet method, the cavitation water jet method, and the ultrasonic cleaning method. These methods are known to be highly effective and they cause minimal damage to the vessel, as long as they are used properly, and by experienced professionals.

As experts in the arena and armed with years of experience, Nereus Subsea undertakes a complete evaluation of your underwater hull cleaning requirements before suggesting the best method for your needs. You can trust that we have your best interest at heart, always.


Are you now wondering about what advantages you will receive from this endeavour? Well, our specialised and niche hull cleaning services help you with the following important aspects and offer you benefits such as –

  • Removal of slime and biofouling – these can increase the drag and damage the hull of your ship.

  • Express cleaning of biofouling growth after low activity or lay-up period – if your ship has been sedentary for a period of time, this service will help you get rid of all the biofouling agents stuck to the hull.

  • Coating maintenance – the coating on your hull protects it from damage and we help you maintain it in the best way possible.

  • Managing fouling at the arrival of a vessel – when your ship is ready for its voyage, it needs to be cleaned completely. We help you do this, in addition to managing patchy fouling.
