    Biofouling, Biosecurity and Hull Cleaning

    £135.00
    This publication describes the various types of biofouling and the problems it can cause for ship operation and the marine environment. It examines the use of anti-fouling systems to prevent the build-up of biofouling as well as the options available for ship cleaning. It also sets out biofouling legislation and guidelines. The book includes data sheets for a number of hull cleaning companies worldwide.

    Biofouling can have a significant impact on ship hydrodynamics and energy efficiency and interfere with efficient operation of internal seawater systems. It can also threaten the marine environment through the transfer of non-native invasive species, or through the use of toxic anti-fouling systems.

    This publication identifies ship structures that are vulnerable to biofouling, factors affecting the rate of build-up and the effect of biofouling on performance and operating costs. It briefly discusses a number of environmental research initiatives into the effects of biofouling.

    The book looks in detail at biofouling management, including the use of biocidal and non-biocidal paints and coatings, marine growth prevention systems, in-water cleaning and treatment in dry dock.

    It sets out current biofouling legislation and guidelines, including IMO’s 2011 Biofouling Guidelines, the International Convention on the Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships (AFS Convention), and individual national and regional biofouling legislation. It provides templates for the Biofouling Management Plan and the Biofouling Record Book.

    Finally, it provides a selection of data sheets giving an insight into the spread and capabilities of hull cleaning and inspection companies worldwide.
