Port authorities need at least 48 hours’ notice before a hull clean can commence. Castellon allows cleaning for any type of port call. No flat bottom cleaning is allowed when the vessel is alongside, it is only allowed at anchorage.
PORTS COVERED UNDER THE NETHERLANDS. Servicing all Rotterdam Ports and Buoy areas OPERATING INFORMATION Non-diver hull cleaning is the only permitted vessel cleaning method allowed in Rotterdam port. Hull cleaning may not be carried out on the same side whilst bunker fuel transfers/deliveries are taking place. Hull cleaning can continue only once the bunker barge has cast off. Hull cleaning is prohibited at Anchorage, allowed only in port and dolphins. Visibility is very poor and some berths don’t have fenders, so vessels’ berths can be very close to the jetty. In such cases, only one side of the vessel may be cleaned. We cannot operate at Oil and Gas Terminals. HullWiper can carry out hull inspection, vertical side cleaning and flat bottom cleaning subject to the above restrictions.
