KASEL’S TRACK RECORD
Kasel has chalked up an impressive track record in a whole range of salvage jobs around the world.


WRECK REMOVAL HIGHLIGHTS

• HMS Kudat

When: February 1993
Where: Malaysia


Project:
This 1,725 grt warship sank in the South Klang Channel, Malaysia, in 1941 after Japanese aircraft strafed and bombed it.

Contract: Lump sum – no cure, no pay.


Details:
This World War II wreck was cut in several pieces before being removed from the site. The job took 82 days to complete.

Insider view:
This job was particularly challenging because of the strong current and the vessel had sunk deep into the muddy seabed of the channel. – Rainer Kasel.

• Gichoon
When: October 1997
Where: Horsburgh Lighthouse

Project:
The 4,000 grt containership grounded and sank near the Horsburgh Lighthouse. Bunker oil, hazardous cargo and super-structure were removed.
