VessEx Expands Anti-Piracy Service

Friday, April 24, 2009

Vessel Extractions, LLC, a worldwide ship recovery specialist, launched its Shiprotek service to protect ships from pirate attacks. VessEx protection teams, composed of former Special Forces personnel, ride with ships in high-risk waters to prevent pirates from boarding their clients' vessels and harming the crews.

A VessEx Shiprotek team will board a client's vessel anywhere in the world, escort it through troubled areas, and disembark in its next safe port. During the voyage, the team assesses the ship's security situation, trains the crew in anti-piracy techniques, implements procedures to minimize risk, and assists the crew in maintaining anti-piracy watch. When a threat is identified, the team implements its counter-piracy procedures.

Since 2002, Vessel Extractions, LLC (VessEx) has provided ship-recovery solutions to shipowners, marine insurers and shipping financiers.
