Our dedicated marine team specializes in creating innovative solutions for the industry with the use of aluminium profiles. We utilize our extensive knowledge of aluminium extrusion design, friction stir welding (FSW) and other techniques to design and manufacture aluminium solutions that provide you with significant weight reductions, increased strength, cost savings in vessel construction, improved quality and sustainable offerings and corrosion resistance.

Aluminium forms a natural oxide layer that protects the material from corrosion and can be further enhanced by adding surface treatment.Hydro’s Marine & Offshore business has spent much time educating the industry on the use of aluminium in marine and offshore applications.

“When designers and engineers are attending universities, they learn using steel or composites – less about aluminium. This is a lost opportunity for the marine and offshore industry, as aluminium has many advantages over competing materials. Aluminium can be applied to almost any ship, from small to large, to get the advantage of weight saving, giving increased performance and stability,” says Thomas B. Svendsen of Hydro.
