Donjon Continues Work in Gibraltar

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

Donjon Marine continues work on a contract awarded on March 24, 2009 for the wreck removal and disposal of the remnants of the M/V Fedra, which grounded and partially sank during a storm in October. On May 25, 2009, Donjon commenced site operations and with support from local subcontractors, performed vessel remediation as well as pre-cutting portions of the remaining deck house, stack and decking in preparation of the arrival of Donjon’s main wreck removal flotilla and salvage crew. On May 8, 2009, Donjon’s 400-ton capacity derrick barge Columbia, New York, material barge Witte 1404, and 7000 hp attendant tug Atlantic Salvor arrived in the Port of Gibraltar. After three days of preparation, Donjon deployed to the site with the intent to remove all topside deck and remaining structures.  Once that phase of the operation is complete, Donjon plans to move the remaining vessel through underwater burning and use a chopper beam and chain cutting.
