Hydrex Underwater Inspections

Underwater inspections are an essential aspect of ship repairs. Building upon conventional technical skills and know-how while also taking advantage of the latest technology, Hydrex offers a unique hull monitoring service to its customers.

This gives ship owners total control of the underwater hull and the underwater gear of their vessels. An informed decision can then be made concerning any required follow-up action. Catching problems early can save much time and money.

Hydrex diver/technicians can carry out inspections underwater and on-site very swiftly without disturbing the vessel’s sailing schedule.

With fuel costs amounting to 40% of operational expenses and continuing to rise, reducing fuel consumption is a vital concern of ship owners. This is the reason why hull monitoring pays for itself. Underwater hull roughness, marine fouling, bent propellers and poor paint condition are all factors that will increase fuel usage due to the drag or inefficiency created by the damaged or affected area. The data gathered can then be used for a wide range of actions.

Hydrex diver/technicians are trained for a wide range of operations and they can carry out the inspections in port or at anchor.

Headquartered in the Belgian port of Antwerp, Hydrex has offices in Tampa (U.S.A) and Algeciras (Spain). All the offices have fully operational fast response centers where qualified divers and an extensive range of state-of-the-art equipment are available at all times. This allow to mobilize very fast to operations anywhere in the world.
