Hydrex Fix Helps Vessel through Panama Canal

Antwerp-based underwater repair and maintenance specialist Hydrex has recently repaired a stern tube seal assembly of a 156-meter Dutch vessel after it experienced an oil leak.

The ship needed to pass through the Panama Canal to reach its next destination, but the leak had to be repaired before it was allowed to do so.

An underwater inspection revealed that while the wire had been removed by a local diving company, the damage to the stern tube seal assembly was extensive. The rope guard and the seal housing needed to be completely replaced.

After the repair, the vessel was cleared to sail through the Panama Canal towards the next stop on the schedule.
