Underwater Services

A ship owner is principally interested on the potential savings associated with a clean hull and smooth propeller. Anti-fouling paints offer protection against marine growth which lead to increased resistance requiring additional power (fuel) to maintain the same speed. The greater time spent at sea, the less anti-fouling effectiveness.

Ship owners should intervene to arrest this process which in turn will reduce their navigational costs.

Water Weights

Water Weights’ water filled proof load bags were originally designed in 1979, as a safer and more cost effective alternative to solid weights, for testing the safe working load of cranes on North Sea oil & gas installations.

The development of this highly engineered and certified system has greatly increased the practicality, economy and safety of providing proof load testing in many applications. In addition, certain proof load testing situations are only feasible with the use of Water Weights.
