Distressed Cargo

Containment, handling and treatment of distressed cargo to maximise environmental protections, as well as cargo value.

Cargo released from a vessel in distress may potentially cause environmental harm if not contained and removed from the ocean. Once engaged to support a distressed vessel, our experienced response teams and specialists endeavour to salvage cargo and above all ensure the situation is safe.

Highly experienced coxswains and crews can provide services including:

  • Salvage support services, including pollution prevention and tank discharging/cleaning before salvage
  • Loading and discharging of vessels
  • Rope Running
  • Marine engineering solutions
  • Underwater search/survey
  • Shoreline surveys
