Own fleet of Support Vessels

For offshore salvage we mainly use our Dive and Work Vessel ‘Ram’. This multi-purpose vessel has two permanent cranes and can be mobilized quickly, which makes it very suitable for offshore salvage.

Our MPSV ‘Solution’ is highly suitable for Salvaging projects. More about DUC’s vessels

Locating objects

When location of the object is required, we have Sonar, GPS and other resources at our disposal. For a first survey we can deploy our underwater ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) to inspect the object.
