Salvage of Damaged Barge
Client: Global Marine
Project: Salvage of Damaged Barge
Location: Dampier Archipelago, WA
Project Highlights: Marine repair of damaged hull
The client’s vessel had sustained considerable cyclone damage to the hull and was partially submerged. Tidal Solutions were contracted to repair the submerged hull to allow re-floatation of the vessel which would allow is to be towed to the safety of the harbour.
Issues addressed and resolved
The work was undertaken in a remote location and under extreme conditions. Due to the vessel being submerged, Tidal Solutions had to work with the tides to repair it. This meant working in hot and humid conditions, day and night in a marine environment until the vessel was repaired to the point it could be towed to safe anchorage.
