Multraship completes Domiat salvage

Friday, June 18, 2004
Multraship Salvage has completed the salvage of the 38,391 dwt Egyptian-flag Domiat, which grounded near Copenhagen on June 7. The LR-class vessel was loaded with 33,000 tonnes of potash, bound from St Petersburg to India, when it ran aground at speed on a rocky shoal. Multraship managing director Leendert Muller says, "This was a tricky job given the lack of suitable discharging equipment available in the Danish area to handle the cargo on site. We were able to mobilise teams from Terneuzen and get the job done with no pollution and no leakage. The ship is now reloaded and on its way. This confirms our ability to provide rapid reaction salvage services right across the European region." A salvage team of eight under the direction of Multraship salvage officer Jan Snip used three tugs, including Multraship's 42 tonne bollard pull Barracuda, a barge and a grab system to lighten, refloat, reposition and reload the vessel. Multraship is a leading independent Dutch towage and salvage company. Run by the Muller family, it draws on more than 85 years of experience. Multraship's core operations include salvage, wreck removal, harbour towage, sea and river towage services to the dredging and offshore industries and support for inland navigation. It operates and manages a fleet of 26 tugs, salvage vessels, floating sheer legs and other craft equipped with modern towage, salvage and fire-fighting equipment and manned by experienced and highly-trained masters and crew.
