ASA Members Respond to USS Port Royal

Monday, February 23, 2009

During the morning hours of February 7, 2009 three members of the American Salvage Association (ASA) provided salvage support to the U.S. Navy's Supervisor of Salvage to respond to the grounding of the USS Port Royal outside of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The 9,600-ton, 567 ft guided missile cruiser ran aground a half-mile off Honolulu International Airport's Reef Runway after leaving port for sea trials.

The ASA members mobilized their staffs for a response team consisting of a salvage master, assistant salvage master and a salvage engineer, managing logistics and contracting, as well as commercial resources required to support the Navy salvage operation either on site or from corporate offices.  The three-day salvage effort involved tugs, a lightering barge, labor and other third-party services to assist the Navy with the successful salvage effort.

The American Salvage Association is a trade association promoting professionalism and improving marine casualty response in American coastal and inland waters.
