About Biofouling Solutions
Biofouling Solutions was established in 2008 in response to the increasing global environmental threat posed by the translocation of Invasive Marine Species (IMS) through biofouling. Our staff include highly trained marine biologists who combine their diverse range of skills and experience to scientific, environmental and industrial applications.
We travel globally to provide specialist marine biosecurity services to maritime industries and regulators. Our reputation is built on our specialist expertise, independence and integrity, innovative solutions and a high standard of reporting and quality control.
We specialise in pragmatic management of IMS risks via reducing the potential for their transport and introduction. We have specific expertise in managing biofouling on man-made surfaces including a wide range of immersible infrastructure, the external surfaces of a diverse array of complex vessels and within internal seawater systems.
Our team are capable of rapidly mobilising to anywhere in the world and have a proven track record of successfully inspecting and managing IMS risks for some of the largest and most diverse vessels and infrastructure in the world. We are experienced in developing, testing and implementing a wide range of biofouling treatments and management regimes that can be applied to any maritime vessels or infrastructure.
In order to further diversify and strengthen Biofouling Solutions’ capabilities, we recently combined forces with Mr Derek Tan (Leading Marine Technology Pte Ltd) and integrated our respective strengths to offer technical expertise in commercial diving and innovative solutions to biofouling and invasive marine species management with in-water cleaning technologies.
We believe our integrated resources will strengthen and support the on-going development of new scientifically proven, cost-effective and user-friendly in-water cleaning and treatment technologies, for hull grooming to reduce fuel consumption and the unwanted dispersal of invasive marine species.
