From Naval Sea Systems Command Public Affairs
Supervisor of Salvage and Diving (SUPSALV), a directorate of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) in Washington, managed the deployment of salvage equipment Sept. 16 in direct support of Hurricane Ike relief efforts in Galveston, Texas.
NAVSEA's SUPSALV received the request from the Galveston District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) Sept. 15 for U.S. Navy assistance in removing a number of small vessels sunk in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GICW) along the Bolivar Peninsula northeast of Galveston.
"We've identified five salvage targets, two of which have been confirmed to be commercial size fishing vessels," said Michael Herb, director of salvage operations. SUPSALV and its contractor commenced salvage removal operations Sept. 17.
SUPSALV is responsible for all aspects of ocean engineering, including salvage, oil pollution response, in-water ship repair, contracting, towing, diving safety and equipment maintenance and procurement.
