Resolve Marine Group, the Florida-based marine salvage, firefighting and emergency response company with worldwide operations, has been awarded the salvage of the 331-ft Clipper Adventurer cruise ship that ran aground on uncharted rocks near Nunavut in Canada's Northwest Passage on Friday, August 27.
The Miami-based ship owner/operator International Shipping Partners awarded RESOLVE the Lloyds Open Forum salvage contract Wednesday. The P.I. Club for the vessel is Steamship Insurance Management Services, Ltd.
Resolve’s salvage master and salvage engineer arrived on the ship August 29 and immediately began assessment of damage to the 35-year-old ship, following evacuation of passengers by the Canadian Coast Guard. Plans are underway to remove fuel and perform temporary repairs to breaches in the hull in preparation to refloat and tow the vessel to Cambridge Bay.  Resolve is working closely with the Canadian Coast  Guard and other authorities to expedite the salvage.
Equipment from Resolve’s Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and Mobile (Theodore), Ala. operations centers is being flown in to Cambridge Bay and Tuk, Northwest Territories and loaded on tugs for deployment to the stranded vessel. Salvage personnel will fly in from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories.
