SALVAGE HIGHLIGHTS

• The Kapitan Shvetsov

Details:
The ship sank by the stern and afloat forward. Some 6,000 tonnes of the valuable cargo of molasses were pumped out using the ship’s pumps. After the cargo was removed, she was refloated with a 1ft freeboard. The entire job took about one month.

Insider view:
Using the ship’s pumps and air compressors to pump out the cargo was quite a novel approach. Ultimately, this job made Kasel Salvage. We showed that we had the ideas and the creativity by being able to work with the very limited equipment available on-site. – Rainer Kasel.
