Cargo holds are the backbone of your dry bulk shipping operations so keeping them in good condition is paramount. From protecting your cargo to safeguarding your ships, there are a host of benefits bulk carrier owners and charterers reap with every voyage. For example, keeping your cargo free of contaminants; keeping your holds in peak working order; and avoiding unnecessary delays and fines are just a few.

  • Protect cargo from contamination from rust and paint scale. Scale needs to be thoroughly cleaned from all cargo hold surfaces with suitable high-pressure equipment.
  • Ensure hatches are clean to prevent water ingress into the hold or air transfer by providing a tight seal.
