Diving Services In Cameroon
United Marine Services Ltd currently offer diving services in Cameroon in the waters of three major cities including; Doula, Limbe and Kribi.
Our diving services ranges from commercial diving and its specialised applications, offshore diving, inshore civil engineering diving, marine salvage diving, hazmat diving, and ships husbandry diving.
Underwater hull cleaning and propeller polishing
With our experience in Cameroon, we have expanded into the waters of Limbe, Douala and Kribi, where we have managed to gain exclusive permission to complete underwater hull cleaning and propeller polishing at outer anchorage.
We are also associated with many big firms in Cameroon with regards to the surveying and maintenance of pipelines.
Hull cleaning services
UMS Diving Services In Cameroon offers hull cleaning services to the offshore industry, which includes the cleaning of the flat bottom, sides, grids, sea chests and rudder. It is a known fact that every dollar spent on a hull clean and propeller polish saves the company $8 in fuel. Our expertise in this field runs to over 1,000 vessels of all different lengths and drafts.
We are specialized in a mixed gas system that allows our divers to continue with a hull clean where the vessel is drafting over 12m. For these services the fees are slightly higher but it has been known that this system is effective and efficient.
During a propeller clean, all growth is sanded off first and then the disc pads are changed for polishing pads. Thousands of dollars are lost annually due to the inefficiency of the propeller. This can be caused by many things, including marine growth and mechanical damage, which can result in:
- Increased drag resulting in increased torque
- Decreased thrust
- Increased load on propulsion plant at a given speed
- Increased fuel consumption
A smooth and properly polished propeller costs less to maintain, reduces fuel consumption by up to 10% and does not foul easily.
Testing for propeller roughness
The Rubert Gauge Roughness Comparator has six roughness finishes that can be graded A – new propeller finish, and F – rough surface finish. We strive for grade A finish.
In-water surveys for vessels
We offer a range of in-water surveys, including visual inspections, photographic surveys and CCTV surveys. Our experienced teams have the capability to handle every aspect of the underwater inspection process, producing detailed reports for a wide variety of purposes, including:
- Damage assessment
- Preparation for sale or purchase
- Assessment of anti-fouling paint systems
- General inspections of hulls, plating, welding, water intakes, propeller and rudder
- Assessment of general hull condition and/or damage for classification society approval to extend dry-dockings
- Preparation for dry-dockings
Class surveys can vary in detail and length depending on the requirements of the client. The degree of reporting depends on whether the survey is undertaken for specific months or for two or three years of a dry-docking extension period or instead of dry-docking.
