We needed a robust, mobile and fully self-contained wet dustless blasting system to maintain our decks whilst on the seas.

ESL’s Torbocar AC 50 fitted the bill perfectly. It has proved remarkably efficient and reliable.

I would strongly recommend.

Captain Mark Causon, Andrew Weir Shipping.

“Fowey Harbour specialize in ship hull refurbishment and priming for recoating.

The Torbocar is everything we needed in one machine. It really is just ‘plug and play’.
Flexible, reliable and high-performance with hire contract fully covered by ESL support engineers if needed.
