Busy Service times for Hydraulics service agent MHS


MHS hydraulic service agents for OYS in PalmaIt’s been a busy few months for our hydraulic service agent in Palma, Marine Hydraulic Solutions (MHS). We have noticed an increase in the work MHS are undertaking with them, the result of the strengthening relationship between the two companies as well as an increase in the movement of boats in and out of Palma with the continued development of the superyacht infrastructure.

Sedwin Maria, Operations Manager at MHS, comments;

“We have a fantastic working relationship with the team both in the UK and on-site. We have excellent communications between us and always get a very fast response from their designers, who facilitate access to all the drawings and technical information we need for their vangs and rams when completing service work or making modifications.”

Palma is an increasingly popular destination for superyachts and the main yard, Servicios Technicos Portuarios (STP), has invested in infrastructure to help promote growth with a new 1,000-ton travel lift. Sedwin reports that MHS, and sister company RSB Rigging Solutions, have certainly noticed an increase in the number of 50-80m yachts, with both visiting Palma for works and contracting their services.

MHS welcomes many onsite engineers into their workshop in STP and they often assist the engineers with various projects; such as with the bow-thrusters. The companies work well as a team due to the trust and confidence in each other’s abilities. Sedwin goes on to comment;

“We have developed a very good relationship with Ian Crowden, technical director. It is always a pleasure to see Ian when he visits our facilities and he has often been involved in coordinating all communication.”

Deploying sonar and other ships survey and defence instrumentation, is simple and reliable with OMS deployment machines. Construction class approved, low magnetic options and with built in hull doors, our solutions are the best available.
