Resolve Salvage & Fire (Americas), Inc., a subsidiary of Resolve Marine Group, responded to two  OPA-90 client tankers offshore and in the Houston-Galveston Ship Channel in July. Resolve had responded to another tanker incident in January 2010, off Port Arthur, Texas.

On July 14, 2010, Resolve successfully refloated a 22,377dwt chemical tanker, which had grounded in Galveston Bay, Texas as it lost steerage while leaving the port. The vessel was laden with approximately 15,000 metric tons of cargo including Cyclohexane and Benzene.  Resolve, the named salvage and marine firefighting provider in the ship’s Vessels Response Plan, mobilized a salvage master and naval architect. RESOLVE’s onshore management team worked closely with United States Coast Guard Unified Command to ensure a smooth operation and coordination with local authorities. The Resolve salvage master Francis Leckey, directed the internal cargo transfers and de-ballasting, enabling the ship to re-float with the assistance of four local tugs providing 275 tons bollard pull.

On July 29, Resolve responded to a 44,999dwt fully laden product tanker that was taking on water in her engine room, at the southern Galveston Anchorage. The vessel’s master called upon

Resolve for assistance. A salvage master, dive team and pump technician were mobilized along with a dive spread and dewatering equipment from Resolve’s Houston-based resources. The water ingress was secured, repairs effected and the vessel continued on its voyage.
