CLEAN YOUR CARGO HOLD ANYTIME ANYWHERE

Clean your cargo hold anytime, anywhere, even in transit between ports.

Cargo Holds of dry/liquid bulk carriers require a certain degree of cleaning when changing cargo. Such cleaning is a time consuming and at times hazardous task for the crew, which can be performed mainly while in port. The risk of not being sufficiently clean can be excessive,

so a consistently high cleaning quality is necessary when i.e. grain clean is required. By cleaning the majority of the cargo hold with a magnetic crawler, you can reduce the cleaning time, increase safety, reduce risk and clean while in open water.

VertiDrive, in close cooperation with partners from the field, has worked relentlessly over the past years towards a new solution called the VertiDrive M8 Cargo Hold Cleaner. The robot is packed with the latest VertiDrive innovations, yet designed and tested to operate in the most demanding environments. The controls are designed to be intuitive for operation by a crew not necessarily experienced to work with (semi-) automated equipment.
