For more than 40 years now, Bosch Rexroth has supplied hydraulic components for use offshore.

In order to further broaden expertise in this segment the firm has, since mid-1977, been represented by a regional subsidiary in the Netherlands, where a team of specialists is responsible for many major projects. The most spectacular project took place in 1987, when oil production platforms in the Norwegian Ekofisk field were raised. Today Bosch Rexroth offers a broad spectrum of components and systems for offshore operations – including seawater-resistant hydraulic components and heavy-lift drives, special-design large offshore cylinders, and electric drives and controls. Included in the product line are also the patented Enduroq surface coatings for cylinders.

A drilling ship is an example demonstrating how many different concepts and solutions can be used in a single application.
