Posted on 7-August-2018

For nearly 30 years, marine companies using hydraulic equipment in Australia have relied on Pacific Hydraulics to provide a variety of hydraulic services, both onsite at docks and from our workshops.

We have extensive experience across a range of hydraulic components commonly found in marine vessels and port container handling facilities. Our expertise extends to marine straddle carriers, mooring winches, decking cranes and dredging systems.

Pacific Hydraulics understand the challenges within the marine industry, especially for Australian ports and harbours. We assist in keeping hydraulic components and systems operating at maximum efficiency to limit disruption for all marine operations.

Pacific Hydraulics provide onsite preventative maintenance, full field-service, emergency repair work and in-house repairs, as well as distributing hydraulic components.
