The incrustation of marine organisms in fish farming nets and protection is a problem for the aquaculture industry. The nets’ periodic cleaning provides our customers a significant improvement in the quality of their growing environment, allowing greater water flow through the nets (oxygen), in addition to reducing the risks of net breakage and/or force dynamics not modeled in the anchorages.
In addition to washing nets in our workshops, Badinotti Group has been concerned with developing other cleaning systems that adapt to the industry’s needs and preferences. This is how, today, Badinotti provides on-site washing service.
Badinotti offers contract services with regular cycles and scheduled cleanings to eliminate the organic growth of nets used in aquaculture production, which guarantees an optimum water flow for fish farming.

Manta Cleaning Systems
Onsite washing (OSW) is performed by a fleet of vessels and crews that utilize state-of-the-art cleaning equipment. Manta equipment is capable of being remotely operated underwater by pilots on board the boats.
By using innovative technology, our Onsite Washing Services has introduced electric net washing remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).
“These ROVs use twenty percent of the previous energy output to operate. They have eliminated the environmental risk for operating, lowered our carbon footprint, and increased the fish health quality.”
