Hydrex US: Fully operational in North America

Press Release
Monday, May 16, 2011

The Hydrex office in Clearwater, Florida, in the Tampa Bay area is fully established and ready to mobilize immediately. The office has a fast-response center that is equipped with a full range of diving support equipment and everything needed to carry out Hydrex underwater operations at short notice. This enables Hydrex LLC to efficiently service vessels and offshore units calling on ports in Canada, North, Central and South America as well as the Caribbean. 
 
Because of the nature of repair work, it is often necessary for solutions to difficult problems to be worked out in a short time period, sometimes even while an operation is already in progress. This can only be done successfully by technical experts who have familiarity with the challenges involved and the relevant know-how to resolve such technical difficulties. This is why all staff members of the Hydrex office in Clearwater undergo stringent training at the Hydrex headquarters in Antwerp, after which they are skilled to perform a wide range of operations. They can carry out both simple and complex jobs even in the harshest of circumstances and achieve this uniformly without unnecessary loss of time or quality.
 
To offer the fastest possible service to customers, the fast-response center of the US office  is stocked with  an extensive range of state-of-the-art, trucks, tools and diving support eq uipment that is available at all times for the underwater teams. This enables the office to mobilize diver/technician teams immediately to all kinds of operations.
 
Saving significant amounts of time, trouble and expense through on-site underwater work, the offered services range from a detailed inspection of a vessel’s external condition and any required maintenance or cleaning work all the way through to highly technical major repairs. Repairs to thrusters, propellers, rudders, stern tube seals, damaged or corroded hulls and all other underwater services are done while the vessel is in-situ.   This eliminates the need to drydock, along with the loss of time and production this entails. Working closely with owners, managers and supervisors, all used methods are fully approved by all major classification societies.
 
Some cases in point.
 
Underwater stern tube seal repairs in New York Mississippi and Alabama
Underwater stern tube seal replacements on vessels berthed in New York, Gulfport (Mississippi), and Mobile (Alabama) were carried out by Hydrex diver/technicians. All three vessels had oil leaks and were not allowed to sail unless permanent repairs were carried out.
