Refloating a floating crane

Case: refloating at Indian Shipyard

At an Indian Shipyard, a ship lift collapsed while lifting a floating crane.

Marine Masters mobilised a salvage team consisting of Dutch Salvage Master (Dirk Jan Osinga), a Shore Coordinator (Kajal Purohit based in Mumbai), local salvors, and divers.

The floating crane was successfully refloated after removal of damaged structures and operating the ship lift using strand jacks.

The operation was conducted in close cooperation with our client, the shipyard, and their contractors.

Marine Masters worked mainly with local personnel and equipment and we enjoyed working with the following Indian partners: Indi Maritime, Reliable Marine, and Aquatic Diving.
