The dry bulk industry could greatly reduce the risk of cargo contamination, surveyor non-compliance hold-ups and charter party disputes, as well as substantially reduce cargo hold cleaning costs, according to CLIIN, the safe and environmentally-friendly robot technology revolutionising ship cargo hold cleaning. CLIIN, which has so far deployed robots to shipowners’ Ultrabulk, Norden, J. Lauritzen and Oldendorff, claims its technology also means that the dry bulk sector could prevent the dissemination of as much as 300,000 tonnes of chemicals being released into the world’s oceans when cleaning cargo holds.

For decades, the same methods have been used to clean dry-bulk cargo holds, with crew members using strong alkaline and acidic chemicals, scrubbing equipment, and brushes, often while suspended from rigging systems while holding high-powered pressure hoses.

The CLIIN robot system represents a departure from this outdated approach. Combining cutting-edge robot technology, it scales cargo holds while simultaneously controlling a high-pressure water cleaning system and requiring only one or two crew members - creating a raft of benefits compared to traditional methods of cleaning dry-bulk cargo holds.
