Marine Offshore and Subsea Repairs

We also repair hydraulic cylinders exposed to marine and offshore environments. You can rely on our many years of experience in “Marine” hydraulic cylinders and rams. We use quality stainless steel, corrosion-resistant electro-plating and other surface coatings to achieve high-quality salt-resistant repairs.

We have a lot of experience producing hydraulic cylinders operating the bow doors on RO/RO ferries. We also frequently work on deck winches, cranes, oil-producing platforms, subsea ROVs, and pipe-handling equipment.

We Fix Common Problems

When you have problems with your hydraulic rams, we can provide you with a quick and cost-effective solution. No matter how severely damaged your ram may be, we can provide a repair or remanufacture solution.


"Inexpensive" Not Cheap

We repair rams to their original specification using similar materials and methods as the OEM. Many OEMs and dealers rely on selling expensive spares to make a profit, but we can save you time and money by avoiding their game.


Quality Materials and Seals

We have extensive stocks of chromium-plated piston rod material and cylinder tubes, using the same high-quality materials as the original manufacturer. Our suppliers are top-notch, and we only use equivalent or improved-quality seals when repairing rams.

We’ve Kept Industry Running For Over 70 Years

Originally founded in 1952, Nicol & Andrew was the first company of its kind to carry out in-situ machining and repairs on marine propulsion units.
