Smart Port Challenge 2021 offers 17 innovation opportunities co-created with 21 maritime corporates. This is part of a series of roadshows to allow start-ups to get a better grasp on these opportunities.


Automated Underwater Cleaning And Polishing Of Curved Surfaces

Underwater cleaning of curved surfaces, such as commercial vessels’ bulbous bow or propeller, can only be accomplished with human divers. This is a highly specialised field with limited availability of trained personnel, and comes with high costs and operational risks, and even regulatory restrictions in some locations.

Current solutions using underwater remotely operated vehicles are limited to flat surfaces and are not adapted to handle curved surfaces.

Dive Marine Services is looking for remotely operated and ultimately autonomous solutions to reduce the costs and risks associated with using human divers to clean these curved underwater surfaces.

More Cost-Effective And Efficient Ways To Clean Cargo Holds

Cargo hold cleaning is usually performed by the crew and is a tedious and time-consuming process using high pressure water jets and cleaning chemicals for the sides of the cargo holds as well as high reach areas.

Tata NYK is looking for a more cost effective solution with a faster turnaround time, and reduced risk to the crew.
