Through client demand, ARC has partnered in Lome, Cotonou and Guinea to provide a variety of underwater cleaning, inspection and repair services. A need for a reliable and trusted service provider in West Africa lead to ARC developing the capability to offer support to the industry. Previously many owners had chosen to order vessels to Las Palmas or Gibraltar to undergo repairs at times in unsafe conditions.

Our services provide full inspection and repair or temporary repairs to allow time for the vessel to make her way to larger shipyards or repair facilities.

These services are available all year round.

Our under water service includes (but are not limited to)

Hull Cleaning & Propeller Polishing

Using approved and proven hull cleaning machinery coupled with advanced cleaning techniques, vessel speed and efficiency is improved significantly. Highly trained divers and operators ensure no damage is done to delicate antifouling coatings.

Propeller polishing improves overall fuel efficiency by assisting in increasing thrust and reducing drag on your vessel.

Our cleaning also covers intakes, grids, bow thrusters and rudders.

The marine environment is protected at all times and during our operations, we reduce any environmental and ecological impact by following the strictest guidelines.

Underwater Inspections & Repair

Inspections can be carried out on all vessel types and can include photo, video and CCTV footage. Detailed reports can be provided following inspection, to assist in class surveys.

Our certified welders can carry out repairs above and below the water line. We can repair cracks to the hull, replace sheet steel plate sections and we also conduct installation of sacrificial anodes or cathodic protection and replace underwater coatings.

Our services are available all year round.
