Wreck removal operations

In many cases, wrecks must be removed if they pose a threat to safe navigation or obstruct access to a port or port facilities. SMIT Salvage’s extensive experience includes many complex and challenging wreck removal operations.

They include major projects requiring the mobilisation of extensive resources, such as sheerlegs, pull barges, large pontoons and salvage/diving support vessels. SMIT’s salvage teams can call upon the resources of the entire group to complete wreck removals as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible. These resources include the group's engineering capabilities, risk management skills and fleet.
