Most of the company’s work has been cleaning and coating but, due to continual requests from its clients, specialised work, like ultrahigh-pressure water-jetting, abrasive cutting, hot and cold insulation, hot metal spraying, fluid and sludge pumping, heat-exchanger cleaning and chemical cleaning, have become part of the com- pany’s services. Nautilus Marine is committed to dealing fairly and with integrity in its conduct in all business activities. The company encourages its employees to be committed to high moral, ethical, technical and legal standards, and to reject any business practices that are seen to be improper.
Established about 43 years ago and situated in Cape Town, the company boasts highly-experienced technical teams and services are available on a worldwide basis.
The coating and anticorrosion systems that the company uses include air- and airless-spraying systems, fire-protection spraying, hot-metal spraying and heavy-duty screening.
Cleaning and corrosion-removal systems, high pressure and ultrahigh pressure water jetting, wet abrasive blasting, mechanical scaling, dry abrasive blasting (open or with vacuum), and underwater hull cleaning are also carried out.
The company does underwater cleaning and scanning, the preparation of all tanks for gas-free certification, ultrahigh-pressure abrasive cutting, pumping fluids and sledges, and hot and cold insulation.
“Most of these maintenance services can be carried out at sea,” says Van der Walt.
