Civil works

Hycom hydraulic systems: Stable civil works, like bridges, locks and footbridges, that function the way they should

We have proven our skills in developing and engineering the most wide-ranging hydraulic drives and control systems for civil works. The Netherlands have battled wind and water for many years. That is why we acquired a
vast experience in the engineering, production and installation of hydraulically operated
civil works.


  • Traffic and passenger bridges
  • Ro-ro bridges
  • Shiplocks and gates
  • Tide barriers
  • Gates for water pumping stations


These civil projects are usually equipped with proportional technology. Thanks to a specially developed unique combination of hydraulics and electronics, as well as the incorporation of output controls operated by servos, the movement takes place in a perfectly controlled manner. For some applications we make use of the unique HYDAC OXiStop and Purifier technology. Besides a smaller reservoir, the continuous degassing and dewatering process enables a lifetime extension of the hydraulic fluid.
