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 company said.
According to Hydrex, the final step has now been taken by the development of a repair system that allows the company to perform permanent underwater repairs to every type of propeller in dry conditions. The subsea ship repair specialist said all kinds of repair or maintenance work can be carried out to propellers, twin propellers, variable pitch propellers, azipod and collapsible thrusters.
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, because staying on hire for underwater repairs will save precious time and money.
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 quickly (12 hours) on-site.
With the implementation of this technique our diver/technicians can now perform permanent repairs to all parts of the underwater ship propulsion system in drydock-like conditions.
