Seaward Marine Services was contracted with Greenpeace (Amsterdam) to perform a full hull cleaning of the SY RAINBOW WARRIOR in San Diego, December 27, 2013.  The Ship painted with ECOSPEED; an environmentally safe underwater ship hull coating system designed to be extremely durable and to conform to IMO’s convention on the Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems.  Seaward Marine’s pre-hull inspection indicated that marine growth was 50% with heavy oysters and hard growth.  Seaward Marine utilized the SCAMP multi-brush hull cleaning machine with a modified brush to remove the marine growth.  The paint scheme held up well to the cleaning effort.  The Ship reported that speed and performance were realized as a direct result of the cleaning.
