Hydrex offers turnkey underwater repair solutions to shipowners wherever and whenever they are needed.

Hydrex’s multidisciplinary team will help you find the best solution for any problem encountered with your ship below the water line. Diver/technicians can mobilize immediately to any location around the globe to carry out necessary repair work without the need to drydock.


Hydrex has a long and successful track record of performing complex permanent underwater repairs to thrusters, propellers, rudders, stern tube seals and damaged or corroded hulls. By creating drydock-like conditions around the affected area, Hydrex teams can carry out these operations on vessels in port or at anchor. This permits normal commercial activities to continue without disruption, eliminating the loss of time, production and income that drydocking entails, as well as saving the enormous expense of drydocking itself.

All Hydrex diver/technicians are trained and qualified to perform the full range of required class-approved repair and maintenance procedures in even the harshest conditions.

Headquartered in the Belgian port of Antwerp, we have offices in Rotterdam, Tampa (U.S.A) and Algeciras (Spain). All Hydrex offices have fully operational fast response centers where an extensive range of state-of-the-art equipment is available at all times.
