Hydrex is capable of carrying out high quality and fast underwater inspection and cleaning operations or any other maintenance and repair work on offshore units. A Hydrex diver/technician team can be on location and ready to service offshore units or offshore related vessels within days.
By taking advantage of Hydrex’s in-house designed range of cleaning units, all types of fouling can be removed from any type of offshore structure.
This offers owners big savings in fuel when moving their unit from one location to another which also means reduced GHG and other emissions. It also reduces drag and weight on the unit and facilitates any needed full scale inspection.
For offshore cleaning operations an all-embracing combination of single, twin and triple head cleaning machines is used. The twin head unit is designed for cleaning light, medium and heavy marine fouling from tubular pipes, bracings and legs of offshore oil and gas platforms, jetties, piles, intakes and ship hulls. The triple head machine on the other hand is easily adaptable to the flat shapes of a ship or pontoon hull. It has a reverse function and its heads self-adjust to the contours of the hull making it far easier to clean complex areas.
Preventive and protective maintenance services can also be provided. These are highly effective and save a great deal of time and money in comparison to the costs incurred during a breakdown for which there has been no preparation. With preventive engineering and scheduled maintenance, work delays can be eliminated or reduced significantly.
Hydrex also has the know-how and expertise to provide comprehensive on-site repair services and project management for offshore related units. These services include a wide range of possible repair operations that make use of specially designed cofferdams. These can be rigid or flexible depending on the type of repair.
All projects are engineered and carried out by Hydrex in close cooperation with the customer, starting from the design and construction of equipment all the way through to the actual repair or replacement and subsequent follow-up.
