The size of the ship being salvaged and the complexity of the situation determine the equipment to be used. ‘Cutting’ the vessel is also classified as a salvage operation.
Van Heck applications
- Supplying pumps and materials to make a vessel buoyant again with the use of a ballast system.
- Supplying pumps and material to salvage ships’ cargoes.
- Preventing damage to the environment by removing the fuel from ships. For this purpose, Van Heck has developed a special oil pump known as the Sea Trophy.
