GearConsult appointed agent for Hydrex and Subsea Industries in Norway
Hydrex and Subsea Industries have a new representative agent in Norway. GearConsult AS will represent and support Hydrex services and Subsea Industries products throughout the country.
Ms. Tamara Slight, External Relations Executive for Subsea Industries and Hydrex commented on the appointment: “We are proud to welcome GearConsult to our expanding network of agents. The Norwegian market is very important to us, particularly since Ecospeed is the most durable and overall best coating available. A non-toxic coating system is vital in sensitive waters such as the coastlines or the fjords. GearConsult’s experience and our ability to deliver in this field will help Norwegian owners and operators to save money on fuel while also protecting the environment.”
GearConsult AS represents and promotes the products and services of their principals in the Norwegian market. Traditionally they have had a focus on rotating equipment in the marine market, but over the recent years they have gradually shifted to representing companies who offer green solutions and products. These include hybrid propulsion systems, wave energy recovery and thermal energy recovery systems. The environmentally safe products and services of Subsea Industries and Hydrex fit in perfectly with this vision.
Hydrex is renowned for bringing drydock-like conditions to ships and offshore units. This helps owners to extend their vessels’ drydock interval and eliminates the loss of time and production brought about by drydocking. Using its patented mobdock concept (mobile mini drydock), Hydrex diver/technicians can perform permanent repairs to all parts of the underwater ship propulsion system, as well as steel work or crack repairs in drydock-like conditions.
Subsea Industries is a pioneer in the development of hard hull coating systems and hull and propeller cleaning systems. In 2002 a long-lasting, non-toxic method of protecting ship hulls was introduced into the market. In 2013, after more than 10 years of strenuous testing, Ecoshield was launched for permanent protection against cavitation damage for rudders. In 2014 Ecolock was introduced. This coating system is designed to protect offshore vessels for decades without the need for drydocking. The latest members of the family are Ecofix, a superior, tested and proven filler and Ecolast, a UV resistant coating offering the full corrosion and abrasion protection Subsea Industries coatings are known for.
