T&T Bisso Salvages Tug

Monday, December 31, 2007
The 600 ton capacity D/B BIG T, owned by T&T MARINE SALVAGE of Galveston, Texas, and the 700 ton capacity D/B CAPPY BISSO, owned by BISSO MARINE of Houston, Texas, were used to make a tandem lift of a 105-ft. sunken tugboat in Port Arthur, Texas.

T&T BISSO initially responded to the sunken vessel with the GEORGE T, a salvage support barge used for the diving survey and rigging operations. Once the diving survey and salvage rigging phases were complete, the D/B BIG T was connected to the bow rigging and the D/B CAPPY BISSO which mobilized from New Orleans, Louisiana, was connected to the stern rigging. The two derrick barges then lifted the tug.

The tugboat was successfully salvaged, refloated and delivered to its owner.
