Recent Highlights / Deliveries / Contracts:
Last month a team of experienced Hydrex diver/technicians performed underwater thruster operations on two vessels simultaneously in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Repairs were carried out on both azimuth thrusters of an FPSO while the thruster seals of a heavy load carrier were replaced. Both vessels are managed by the same company and both were suffering from leakage problems on their propulsion system. Both repairs were effected in one operation, giving the costumer the advantage of only one mobilization for both vessels and kept the cost within budget.

With over 40 years of experience, Hydrex has the know how to offers turnkey underwater repair and maintenance solutions to vessel owners. Large and multidisciplinary teams can solve any problem encountered below the water line. Diver/technicians carry out any necessary repair work without the need to drydock.
