Hydrex Services Tanker in Panama

Hydrex diver/technician team has carried out underwater stern tube seal repairs on a 196-meter LPG tanker in Panama. The ship was suffering from an oil leak, making an on-site repair necessary.

Hydrex team mobilized to the tanker’s location, together with all the needed equipment.

After the diving team had set up a monitoring station they removed the rope guard and performed a thorough underwater inspection of the stern tube seal assembly.

Next, they installed the flexible mobdock. The team then removed the four damaged seals one by one and replaced them with new ones.

All parts of the stern tube seal assembly were then reinstalled and secured. Leakage tests were carried out with positive results, after which the divers removed the flexible mobdock. The operation ended with the reinstallation of the rope guard.
