Marine growth removal


Ashtead Technology offer a range of field-proven marine growth removal (MGR) systems for cleaning soft and hard marine fouling from structures, such as vessel hulls, pipelines, subsea infrastructure and mooring chains.

Marine growth removal systems are also commonly used for cleaning monopiles located within offshore wind farms, prior to the installation and grouting of the transition piece. Using our in-house design and engineering capability, we specialise in the development of bespoke systems to meet unique project requirements across the energy services sector.

Compatible with a wide range of subsea structures and moorings, our solutions include mechanical and abrasive grit cleaning systems, ROV & diver operable cleaning tools and water jetting systems.
