HYDREX UNDERWATER TECHNOLOGY offers turnkey underwater repair solutions to shipowners wherever and whenever they are needed. Hydrex’s multi-disciplinary team can help to find the best solution for any problem encountered with a ship below the water line. Divers and technicians are immediately mobilized to carry out necessary repair work without the need to drydock.
Every single day that a ship stays off-hire, causes the owner a substantial loss of money. This is where Hydrex comes in, in order to provide the owner with the most flexible and fastest assistance, throughout any underwater repair or maintenance operation of the ship.
This can only be done successfully by people who have familiarity with such challenges and the relevant know-how to resolve all of the technical difficulties. This is why all Hydrex staff around the world undergo stringent training, after which they are able to perform a wide range of operations. They can carry out both simple and complex jobs even in the harshest of circumstances and achieve the same high quality without unnecessary loss of time.
