Hydro Extrusion Europe
Hydro is a fully integrated aluminium company with 35,000 employees in 40 countries, combining local expertise, worldwide reach and unmatched R&D capabilities. In addition to production of primary aluminium, rolled and extruded products and recycling, we extract bauxite, refine alumina and generate energy to be globally the only 360° aluminium company. Hydro has extensive experience in extruded aluminium for marine applications, supplying components designed to meet heavy structural loads and to cope with aggressive environments. Using a combination of our extrusion technology and Friction Stir Welding (FSW), Hydro can help ship builders to improve the quality and efficiency of vessels. Compared to steel, aluminium offers significant weight reductions without sacrificing structural strength and the unique qualities of extruded component design provide exceptionally high torsion resistance.
