press release
Sunday, October 16, 2011

Inland Salvage Inc. (ISI) was recently voted in as a General Member of the American Salvage Association (ASA) during the 2011 National Maritime Salvage Conference and Exposition in Arlington, VA.

  
Inland Salvage Inc.'s CEO, Mr. Eli Zatezalo stated; "It is a great honor to be voted in as a General Member of such an elite organization as the American Salvage Association.  We have invested heavily in our salvage assets, dive assets, support equipment and I believe we have some of the most experienced salvage divers and salvage masters in the industry.  Our membership will provide Inland Salvage Inc. a platform to expand our capabilities and we look forward to working with other members of the ASA in the near future."
 

  • American Salvage Association background:

Nine leading Salvors in the United States first established the American Salvage Association (ASA) in 2000. Created in response to the need of providing an identity and assisting in the professionalizing of the U.S. marine salvage and firefighting response, the intention of the ASA is to professionalize and improve marine casualty response in North American coastal and inland waters. The ASA intends to ensure open communication and cooperation with regulatory authorities, both state and federal, the environmental community, and of course with ship-owners and underwriters to assure effective operations in the future. By working closely together with regulatory authorities as well as owners and underwriters rather than at cross purposes, the general public as well as marine resources will be even better protected.


The American Salvage Association meets with various federal and state agencies to exchange views on the improvement of salvage and firefighting response in the U.S. It is the intent to also interface with vessel owners and their underwriting interests as well as various public interest groups to assure a better understanding of all views to assure a successful and protective response when required in the future.
