New Cargo Hold Cleaning Solution from WSS

November 4, 2014

Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) unveiled an upgraded cargo hold cleaning solution, combining cleaning agents and mobile equipment to help shipowners, operators and crews stay safe and compliant on a global basis.

The kit includes everything the crew needs, it is easy to assemble and ready to use, WSS said. The improved design makes it easier to maneuver and operate, resulting in safer operations in accordance with MLC regulations. In addition, the equipment is combined with chemicals, all supported by clear documentation and literature, e-learning and demonstration videos.

Jan Fredrik Bjorge, Product Manager at Wilhelmsen Ships Service, said, “With Unitor's standardized hold cleaning solution, owners and operators know exactly what to expect when it comes to costs. The cleaning products are made for purpose and highly concentrated for more cost effective cleaning. Equipment is low-maintenance and durable, and therefore more cost effective in the long run. Customers are less likely to incur additional costs by failing to pass hold surveys.”

“Our cleaning solutions are designed to achieve the same results every time: safe, simple cargo hold cleaning and reduced turnaround times in port,” Bjorge added. “With supplies available across our global network, we help customers stay compliant and save cost.”

The process of cargo hold cleaning is more regulated than ever before. Any cleaning agents that may be discharged with waste water after cleaning must not be harmful to the environment. The Unitor cargo hold cleaning agents are fully compliant with current regulations, notably Marpol Annex V.

Also available is Unitor Slip-Coat Plus, which provides a waterproof barrier to protect the hold, according to US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved standards, enabling carriage of grain and other foodstuffs.
