Marine Salvage

Safe and swift salvage 

 

DUC Marine Group has thirty years of experience with Salvage. We have the knowledge, equipment and trained professionals to handle any Salvaging operation with the greatest care and efficiency.

You can rely on us to safely recover objects from the water, from anchor to ship wreck. We always take the greatest care to avoid damage to the wreck as well as the environment. Timely execution, with specific attention to safety are essential for the way we operate.

Inland and Offshore jobs 

Over the years we have successfully executed numerous salvaging operations ranging from smaller inland jobs to major offshore jobs.

We have recovered a multitude of objects from the water: ship wrecks, car wrecks, suction pipes, ship propellers, anchors, debris, containers, dredging equipment and yachts.

Salvaging equipment

DUC Marine Group owns a broad range of Salvaging equipment, amongst which

  • ROV
  • Airbags with a maximum capacity of 240 tons
  • Compressors
  • Pumps
  • Workboats with Cranes

DUC Marine Group has selected a number of trusted and dedicated suppliers with whom we have a long standing working relationship to get any size job done.

Own fleet of Support Vessels

For offshore salvage we mainly use our Dive and Work Vessel ‘Ram’. This multi-purpose vessel has two permanent cranes and can be mobilized quickly, which makes it very suitable for offshore salvage.

Locating objects

When location of the object is required, we have Sonar, GPS and other resources at our disposal. For a first survey we can deploy our underwater ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) to inspect the object.
