Hydrex Dives in South Korea

Hydrex was contacted to install a doubler plate over a crack in flat bottom plating of one of the water ballast tanks of a 225-meter bulk carrier during her stop in Yeosu, South Korea.

Shortly after arriving at the location, Hydrex diver/technicians performed an underwater inspection to make a full assessment of the damage.

Next, the team prepared the area around the crack for the installation of the doubler plate. Crack arrests were burned on both sides of the crack to stop it from growing bigger. The plate was then welded in place over the damaged area on the underwater hull

The repair was performed according to the Hydrex class approved procedures. As in all operations we carry out, essential professional standards were upheld to ensure the future safety of the ship.
