In cooperation with ROV manufacturer Environtec AS, IndCon AS is the proud supplier and developer of the control system software of the HullWiper Hull Cleaning ROV. The system has been in development for years and went commercial at the end of 2013.

The system is semi-automatic and ensures constant cleaning speeds, positioning and paths, while at the same time adjusting for the environmental factors. Launch and recovery from the support vessel is performed manually using a wireless remote control.

The system is used in very difficult environmental conditions, and went through real life testing in environments that are not easy to simulate through HWIL simulation. A good partnership with Environtec was developed and good cooperation from all parts made the end product possible - the best hull cleaning ROV!
