On the 1st of March the new Hydrex office in Rotterdam has officially opened. Its purpose is to improve the delivery of our services and underwater expertise to the maritime industry of Rotterdam.

To enable a fast mobilization throughout the entire Rotterdam port without delaying a ship’s commercials operations, Hydrex dive support vessels will be stationed in Rotterdam. These workboats are fully equipped with hydraulic cranes, winches, a dive spread and control room.

This allows Hydrex to offer simple maintenance operations as well as repairs on all parts of the underwater ship propulsion system and the hull. Hydrex operations are class approved and carried out alongside or at anchorage while commercial activities continue without disruption. Hydrex does this with qualified and experienced diver/technicians, state-of-the-art equipment and advanced techniques that create drydock-like conditions underwater.

The offices of Hydrex Rotterdam are located at the Wilhelminakade where Sales Officer Rotterdam Erwin Strik is ready to take care of all your questions. The practical side of business is in the hands of Marine Project Officer Willem Hopmans. Willem has over 15 years of diving experience and has been a part of the Hydrex team since 2003. As a fully qualified dive supervisor, Willem is the perfect man to be in charge of our workboats and all operations.

Although Hydrex has been active in Rotterdam for over 40 years, the growing demand for services in the area instigated the opening of our office on the 1st of March. An example of a recent operation in the port is the installation of a doubler plate over the cavitated area of the rudder of a 170-meter container vessel. This operation was performed during the ship’s scheduled maintenance stop. (An article on this operation, together with pictures can be found here.)
