Donjon-Smit Offers No Cost Standby Coverage for Marine Salvage

Thursday, January 05, 2006
Donjon-SMIT, an OPA-90 Alliance, has announced that it now offers free coverage for salvage, firefighting and lightering as required under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. The majority of OPA-90 salvage, firefighting and lightering service providers charge a fee, ranging as high as $650 per vessel per year of coverage, particularly for tank vessels. Donjon-SMIT offers free standby coverage for all vessels both tank and non-tank, which will result in significant savings for companies. This new no cost approach by Donjon-SMIT is based on the operational capabilities of the company, its longstanding expertise, usage of own equipment and access to additional resources necessary for effective and timely response to all kinds of casualties.
