TITAN Re-Floats HD1 Dredge, Erie Canal

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

On July 9, TITAN Salvage refloated the 300-ton, 10-inch Cutter Head Dredge HD1 that sank in the Palmyra, N.Y. section of the Erie Canal.
 
TITAN was contracted to do the job on July 8 and the work began the same day. Less than 24 hours later, TITAN had the dredge refloated.
 
TITAN's next step is to redeliver the vessel to the Canal Corporation's dry dock facility in Lyons, N.Y., about 13 nautical miles from the site of the incident.
 
For this refloating project, a team of six TITAN salvage experts were mobilized. They brought along portable salvage equipment including high volume, electric submersible pumps, patching equipment and heavy lift bags to deal with the dredge, which had been submerged in approximately nine feet of water. The dredge was carrying an estimated 2,000 gallons of marine diesel fuel onboard when it sank June 13.  No pollution was reported during the refloating.
