Join Global at Clean Gulf Session 1D: Challenging Cases for the Salvor and the Coast Guard Field Perspective

The Challenges of Environmentally-Driven Wreck Removal presented by David DeVilbiss,Vice President of Casualty Marine and Emergency Response Services,Global Diving & Salvage,Inc.

Abstract Summary: The paper will focus on the challenges faced with environmentally driven wreck removal projects. One case study is a large ex-navy tug that sank in California inside a graving dock that was inundated with contaminated soil. The environmental drivers behind the wreck removal required unique methods of salvage. The second case study focuses on a Japanese Tsunami dock removal,located in a remote part of the Washington Coast within a National Marine Sanctuary. Invasive species,multiple agencies and stakeholders,and logistically challenging parameters all played a part in the planning and execution of the work.
