Busy Service times for Hydraulics service agent MHS

It’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.”

Ocean Marine Systems (OMS) has been named as a Technical Supplier for the record-breaking @sp80.record Project based in Switzerland. OMS is working to develop and supply unique lightweight hydraulic cylinders that will help the projects aim to reach 80 knots using wind as its sole source of power (current record stands at 65.45 knots).

Using the principles of sailing, kitesurfing and engineering, the boat capable of reaching 80 knots is currently in build and is set to be launched by summer 2022.

“We are delighted to be named as a Technical Supplier in a project that will see a 100m stretch of water covered in just 2.43 seconds,” comments Mark Barwell Sales Director for OMS. “The road to 80 knots is a real challenge and OMS is delighted to be on board for the journey.”

“OMS’ abilities to offer custom designs and to manufacture all products in-house are huge assets in developing the specific hydraulic solutions that we need for our boat,” says Mayeul van den Broek co-founder of SP80. “We are very pleased to benefit from the technical expertise of the OMS team on this quest to break the world sailing speed record!”
