Underwater Marine Salvage

Marine and Underwater Salvage

Commercial Diving Services have an extensive range of specialised equipment along with the experience and qualifications to successfully achieve a variety of marine and underwater salvage operations.

Salvaging can be a risky operation especially when using specialised air lift bags as the primary means of re-floating an object. We professionally assess and utilise the safest means of raising or extracting an item in all salvage projects thus minimising the risk of damage to the item being salvaged, to the environment and our qualified team of commercial divers.

Commercial Diving Services will develop a pre-salvage plan before initiating the salvage operation to ensure all assets of the salvage have been accounted for and to ensure all parties involved are aware of the steps involved.

Our certified IMS Quality Management System ensures the salvage operation is conducted safely and successfully, to the highest of industry standards.

Many environmental factors are to be considered during a salvage operation such as oil leakage and/or fuel, which must be mitigated with the proper use and deployment of oil booms, silt curtains and other specialised oil and fuel absorbent’s.

Commercial Diving Services have carried out extensive salvage operations with 100% success rate and no recorded damage to the environment.
