Biofouling Assessment Services
Biofouling is not only an environmental problem, contributing to the distribution of invasive aquatic species, but also an operational one, leading to reduced vessel speeds, fuel over-consumption, and damaged antifouling paints requiring costly repairs at drydock.
Brookes Bell’s marine biology consultants are perfectly placed to advise and provide expert witness services on biofouling affecting the marine sector. We offer a multidisciplinary approach incorporating the expertise of our in-house coatings experts, master mariners, and marine engineers to address all aspects of biofouling, including fouling origin, antifouling paint condition, and biofouling effects on speed and consumption.
