Newthex delivers Double Flush Hatches for OceanXplorer
After a two-year rebuild at Damen Shipyards the 87 metres long deep-sea research vessel OceanXplorer was launched. For this high-tech vessel Newthex delivered two large Double Flush Hatches.
To create high quality films and documentaries while at sea OceanXplorer uses a helicopter, submarines and ROVs. To fuel the helicopter and other equipment OceanXplorer has 4 large removable fuel tanks which are stored beneath the deck.
Each Newthex hatch is more than 4 metres wide and grants access to the fuel storage compartment. The hatches sit flush in the upper deck to benefit the loading process of the large shipping containers which can be stored on the same deck. More info about Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam and OceanXplorer can be found here.
