Hydro Australia is a pump engineering solutions provider, offering pump rebuilding and on-site field services for the maritime sector in New Zealand, Australia, South East Asia and Vietnam.

The company specialises in increasing pump reliability, extending pump lifecycle and reducing associated costs.

Engineered pump rebuilding for the naval sector

We work with our customers to find the root cause of pump failure. We aim to provide high-quality engineering analysis and workmanship for improved plant operation.

After identifying the root cause of the pump failure, we re-engineer pumping equipment to eliminate the issue and reduce operational costs. Our approach is different compared to other local service providers that simply repair equipment. Our services are not driven by the spare part or new pump sales.

Hydro Australia’s pump service centre is purpose-built and well-equipped to refurbish pumps from most major manufacturers.

Hydro Australia specialises in extending equipment lifecycle and reducing maintenance costs associated with the repair, spare parts and staffing that occur due to premature equipment breakdown. Quality and occupational health and safety have always been our top priority. We hold AS/NZS ISO9001:2015, AS:NZS 4801 and ISO45001:2018 certificates.

Turnkey and field services for the naval sector

Our extensive experience with most major manufacturer pumps enables us to provide a wide range of services, including field machining, installation / start-up supervision, turnkey service, pump system troubleshooting, vibration analysis, laser alignment and emergency field response 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Naval pump parts

When companies require a part and are facing a long lead time, we can meet the specified requirements in a reduced time frame through our reverse engineering, patternless casting and integrated manufacturing processes.

Hydro’s engineers evaluate all parts to offer upgrades and apply new technology that reduces wear and increases pump reliability.

Pump testing for the naval sector

We can ensure your pump’s best performance. Hydro’s 5000HP Performance Test Lab in the US complies with API610 and Hydraulic Institute regulations and can test horizontal, vertical and submersible pumps.

Pump training for navies

Hydro can teach you how to find solutions and use troubleshooting techniques associated with common pump issues. We also offer specialised practical training programmes.

About Hydro Australia

Hydro Australia has an in-house engineering team further supported by personnel in US service centres. We constantly invest in our workforce and provide ongoing training to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the developing pump engineering sector.

Our most important strategic goal is to share our pump knowledge with the clients. Only by working together with our customers can we achieve optimum performance.
