Combined Synopsis/Solicitation

The Maritime Administration (MARAD) Office of Ship Disposal (OSD) is soliciting proposals regarding feasible technologies or processes with the capability to remove biofouling from the underwater hull and appendages (niche areas) of MARAD National Defense Reserve Fleet (NDRF) non-retention vessels, while the vessels are in-the-water, such that:

•1.       The resultant vessel hull meets the United States Coast Guard requirement for movement of the vessel from its home port United States Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) district to another COTP district with regard to the USCG Interim Criteria for Cleaning Hulls of MARAD Vessels Prior to Relocation  - 27 June 2006, attached.

•2.       The equipment, process and/or methodology used to remove biofoulants from the hull can be demonstrated that it can maintain an average discharge control factor of no less than 90%.  A control factor of "no less than 90%," means that a minimum of 90% of the biofoulants removed from the hull are captured, contained, managed, treated or controlled, in such a manner that they are not discharged to the surface waters during the hull cleaning operations.
