SALVAGE OF LOST SUSPENSION BRIDGE PARTS
IJmuiden Approach Channel, Netherlands
The outbound vessel “Wilson Leer” lost her deck cargo of steel modules for a suspension bridge, during her way out of IJmuiden to Sweden.
Six elements of 20 m x 6,5 m x 1,5, weighing 31 tonnes in air, were lost.
A crane vessel, a fully equipped diving team and materials including a decompression tank and a Nitrox unit were mobilised.
It took only four days to complete the work and clear the channel of the debris.
