Hydrex has now developed a repair system that allows them to perform permanent underwater repairs to every type of propeller in dry conditions, while still afloat.

Over the years the Hydrex R&D department has continuously improved underwater repair techniques to make it possible for Hydrex diver/technicians to perform permanent repairs on seals, thrusters, rudders and almost any other part of the underwater vessel without the ship needing to go to drydock.

The new repair system allows all kinds of repair or maintenance work to be carried out on propellers, twin propellers, variable pitch propellers, azipod and collapsible thrusters.

This new repair system can be transported by air transport to any location around the world from the Hydrex fast response centers within a very short time frame. It can be assembled very quickly (12 hours) on-site.

With the implementation of this technique Hydrex diver/technicians can now perform permanent repairs to all parts of the underwater ship propulsion system in drydock-like conditions.

This is especially important news for supply vessels, navy ships or any vessel under contract or on a location far away from available drydock possibilities. Staying on hire for underwater repairs will save precious time and money, say Hydrex.
