Nemo Power Tools
Nemo Power Tools are the first of their kind and the world’s only completely submersible battery-operated power tools. The Nemo V1 Drill was originally custom-designed and built for scientific and government organizations in 2012. The technology was then adapted into a commercial version and production began in 2013.
Since then, Nemo Power Tools has developed a wide range of power tools and accessories for work in, around and under the water. We pride ourselves in working together with our partners and clients to better understand what they need to do their work more quickly and easily.
Our love of innovation combined with our desire to provide ourcustomers with useful, quality products means that we integrate newand exciting technologies into our products.Nemo Power Tools uses technologies generally found in more hightech products: batteries and electronics from the drones industry,cooling technology from the computer industry, and sealing and fabrication methods from the marine industry.
The system is based on the principles of cavitation, when collapsing bubbles generated by a proprietary system create a vacuum that quickly and safely removes fouling materials. The advantages of this system over conventional high pressure blasting, grit blasters, barnacle blasters or brush cleaning are many:
The systems are safe to use. The water stream will not inflict damage to a diver who may come in contact accidentally. The lance grip nozzle system is compact, enabling cleaning of geometrically complex surfaces. All types of marine growth, from seaweed to hard well-attached barnacles, are easily removed, with only one pass, saving operators time and money.
Surfaces with paint, varnish or anti-fouling coatings are not disturbed when cleaned, and heavy metals or other contaminants are not released into the water. The systems use either fresh water or seawater. The cavitation system leaves a smooth surface that retards biological growth and decreases cleaning frequency. The systems range from small, compact and lightweight, to larger units that fit comfortably in the bed of a pickup truck or workboat.
