SALVAGE HIGHLIGHTS

• The LEUSER

Job details:
The Leuser was struck on her starboard side by a log carrier. She sustained a serious gash and was left lying on her side with a 75 degree port list in about 16 metres of dark muddy water fraught with strong currents. The job involved carrying out collision repairs, construction and erection of cantilever arms, the laying of anchors, uprighting and patching of the hull as well as pumping, dewatering and towage preparations. A 350-ton floating crane, two pulling barges and four tugs were deployed on site. Some 100 people, including 12 divers, were involved in this massive job. The entire salvage job took just 63 days.

Insider view:
All stages of the salvage, comprising temporary collision repairs, construction and erection of cantilever arms, laying of anchors, uprighting and patching of the hull, pumping and dewatering and towage preparations, were carried out in a competent and professional manner. Everyone concerned worked extremely hard under difficult conditions. – John Nixon of the Salvage Association.

This job shows that Kasel Salvage can compete with the big boys in terms of major salvage contracts. It also demonstrated that we can react quickly, we are flexible and that we have a level of expertise which is second to none in the region. – Rainer Kasel.
