Donjon Work on M/V Fedra Continues

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Donjon Marine, Co., Inc., a provider marine services including marine salvage, heavy lift, dredging and related emergency response services, 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, in October 2008, grounded and partially sank during a storm.
 
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 7000HP attendant tug Atlantic Salvor arrived in the Port of Gibraltar. After three days of preparation, Donjon deployed to the site with the initial focus on the removal of all topside deck and remaining structures.  Once that phase of the operation is complete, Donjon will move the remaining vessel through underwater burning, as well as with the use of a chopper beam and chain cutting.
 
Project Manager and Executive Vice President of Donjon Marine John A. Witte, Jr., said, “Work is underway and we have been making very good progress each day, made even better by the support of our local subcontractors and the people of Gibraltar, who’ve made us feel a little more at home.”
