Website for Rocknes Salvage Established

Tuesday, March 16, 2004
A remarkable salvage operation is scheduled for this month in Norway. The capsized 166-meter-long vessel ‘Rocknes’ will be uprighted (parbuckled) by SMIT Salvage at the CCB yard in Agotnes, Norway. The ‘Rocknes’ capsized and sank in a strait near Bergen, Norway on the 19th of January 2004. In this tragic accident 18 crewmembers lost their lives. The salvage operation can be followed from the newly opened website ROCKNESSALVAGE.COM. During the past weeks the salvors have prepared the parbuckling of the vessel with a total weight of approximately 9000 tonnes. The ‘Rocknes’ will be pulled into an upright position by use of winches and a hoisting barge. The use of this method is extraordinary for a vessel of this size. Details like the development, background and progress of the operation can be found on the new website. The initiators of the site are the Jebsens Group, Gard AS and SMIT Salvage. The Jebsens Group is manager of the vessel, Gard is responsible for its insurance and SMIT Salvage leads the salvage operation. For more information please visit WWW.ROCKNESSALVAGE.COM
