SMIT Salvage is one of the largest salvage companies in the world. The SMIT name is synonymous with many of the most challenging and complex salvage operations that have taken place over the last century.
Experienced in braving the most challenging cases
SMIT offers marine emergency response coverage at a moment’s notice – 24/7. SMIT Salvage carries out emergency response, wreck removal operations and environmental care services across the globe no matter how remote the location is. The company maintains specialized equipment and expert personnel in a state of round-the-clock readiness to respond to incidents. Our rapid response is possible because of four strategic locations, which are situated along the main international shipping routes in different time zones (Rotterdam, Houston, Cape Town and Singapore). The increasingly complex nature of salvage operations requires multidisciplinary, experienced teams. We deploy our own expert salvage teams and masters but we can also draw on the vast resources of our parent company Boskalis.
We have specialists readily available in several disciplines, which are vital when dealing with an emergency. We have experts in:
- Hazardous chemicals
- Marine pollution prevention
- Naval architecture
- Heavy lift engineering
- Diving operations
SMIT’s salvage teams have experience in confronting the most challenging cases, from chemical tankers, which have suffered damage to their cargo tanks, to fires involving hazardous cargoes on board.
