Where We Work
Offshore Wind Farms
We are proud to be the UK’s leading designers and installers of hydraulic equipment to offshore wind farm support operators.
Heave Compensating System
Hercules Hydraulics were heavily involved with the development of the Heave Compensating System, totally new territory for the industry.
Our marine expertise allows us to develop and produce bespoke hydraulic products, undertake heavy engineering and ensure the effective integration with existing equipment
Our history of working with the M.O.D is based on our hydraulics experience in the marine industry
In a partnership with Finning UK, Hercules Hydraulics have been awarded the contract to undertake the re-propulsion of the M.O.D. Minesweeper fleet
Hercules Hydraulics are able to provide hydraulic equipment and hydraulic systems for any sailing vessel, including classic yachts.
This may include hydraulic drive systems, boom furlers and rigging equipment.
Ports / Harbours
We have worked with several port or harbour authorities in both providing hydraulic equipment and maintaining their own harbour vessels.
A recent upgrade of the passenger gangways and vehicle loading ramp at Guernsey harbour, involving the reconditioning of both the power packs and hydraulic cylinders has been completed by Hercules Hydraulics.
Fleets Across The UK
Commercial fishing was where Hercules Hydraulics started its life in 2004. We understand the market and the terminology used.
We now support the local fleet as well as fishing fleets all over the UK with hydraulic engineers available 24 hours a day 365 days a year as well as providing equipment such as Anchor Winches, Conveyor Systems, Hydraulic Shooting Doors, Pot Haulers, Capstans and Hydraulic Hatches.
British Waterways - Leisure
Hercules Hydraulics have been installing hydraulic propulsion units including drives, bow and stern thrusters in canal boats for many years.
Taking technology developed for the commercial sector we have built a reputation for innovative hydraulic solutions and are now considered to be the market leaders in this sector
Each vessel is completely individual and requires a bespoke system to suit.
Whilst much of our work centres on hydraulics for the marine industry, this is not our exclusive domain.
We work in any area of industry where hydraulic equipment provides a solution.
Equipment includes hydraulic scissor lifts, hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic presses whilst repairs can be carried out on-site or at our premises with servicing and maintenance contract available.
Our vast stock of hydraulic parts allows us to offer an efficient support service to the local agricultural industry via our sales department and trade counter.
Hydraulic hoses, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic control valves, hydraulic pumps and hydraulic motors are just some of the components we stock plus we have access to parts supplied by other key hydraulic equipment manufacturers.
On-site hydraulic servicing and maintenance is essential for mobile plant operators as moving heavy equipment is both difficult and expensive.
Our support vehicles are equipped with hydraulic test equipment plus an on-site hose manufacturing facility, whilst hydraulic cylinders may be returned to our premises for repair.
