Wreck Removal is a low priority task than the salvage, as mentioned above operations. The aim is to disembarrass the water area of hazardous or unsightly substances using the most practical and cheapest method possible. One of the most common methods is to cut the hull into very small sections and refloat the parts and dismantle it in deeper waters.

Increasingly, their expertise and determination to see the job executed efficiently has been in demand for significant wreck removals and similar large-scale sub-sea and surface works.

Projects to remove or recover submerged assets often involve a variety of issues including environmental challenges, navigation safety, unobstructed access to ports, and of course the high value of material or equipment which has been lost. The Group’s record of reliably delivering the most challenging projects on time and to the satisfaction of the customer speaks for itself.
