Air Vortex® Process
We employ conditioned turbulent airflow at the inlet of the pipe system and a vacuum collector at the outlet. Aggregate scours the line and cleans it to the substrate. Subsequently, a polymer is injected, lining the entire pipe system evenly. Our process works through bends, connections, and verticals.

Our Mission
Vessels experience severe degradation of pipe systems due to abrasion, erosion, corrosion, and general wear and tear. We offer solutions from years of diverse engineering expertise to restore, preserve, and optimize pipe system lifecycles. Cleaned and lined pipes provide a non-corrosive barrier between the host pipe and medium flowing, significantly reducing friction and energy loss.

Environmental Benefit
Our carbon footprint is a fraction of replacement. Masses of pipe are not wasted. No toxic chemicals are used. There is no manufacturing and logistics of new pipes and no need to dismantle the vessel to get to buried old pipe systems.
Pipe systems fill with debris, corrosion, and barnacles that decrease flow, leading to increased operating costs and wasted energy. Degrading pipe systems create leaks that can cause extensive damage to the environment. Corroded or clogged pipe systems are hazardous. All waste produced during our cleaning process is disposed of through our aggregate recovery unit and filtered through a HEPA filter.

Bannenberg & Rowell Design is the direct descendant of Jon Bannenberg Ltd, the convention-breaking studio founded by Dickie Bannenberg’s late father in the late 1950s.

Jon Bannenberg designed an unbroken line of the most iconic and admired yachts in the world. Often referred to as the “Le Corbusier” of yacht design, he worked with shipyards in Holland, Germany, Italy, Australia and France. Beyond yachts, Bannenberg’s body of work was widespread, but focussed at the very highest level, and included residences and hotels, a replacement for the much-loved Royal Yacht Britannia,  First Class suites and public rooms on the Queen Elizabeth 2 liner for Cunard, aircraft interiors and even bespoke car design for Rolls Royce and Jensen. He was appointed a Royal Designer for Industry in 1978.

Since 2003, when the company was rebranded as Bannenberg & Rowell, the studio has delivered some forty yacht projects – new builds and refits – as well as a further twenty residential and transport projects. The studio provides both interior and exterior design services.

B&R’s base is in an industrial building in Fulham, south-west London, which houses the design studio, a full soft furnishings and sampling library and the design archives dating back more than sixty years. As the only modern, multi-generational, holistic yacht design studio Bannenberg & Rowell is truly uniquely equipped to the understanding of heritage.

Why Bannenberg & Rowell supports Water Revolution

Bannenberg & Rowell were one of the start up supporters of the WRF, recognising the Foundation’s core aims of bringing the yachting industry together to research and develop solutions to improve the approach to sustainability.

Dickie Bannenberg completed an eight week course in early 2023 at the Cambridge University Institute of Sustainability Leadership and is spearheading a drive for collaboration between design studios, in particular, to effect change.
