T&T Marine Salvage conducted survey operations of a sunken passenger vessel in 220 ft of water near Limbones Island. T&T Marine Salvage mobilized an ROV operator and compact ROV System that surveyed the sunken vessel and located key entry points, assisting in the recovery of victims. The operation was a joint effort with the Philippine Coast Guard and Malayan Towage and Salvage Corporation.

“Due to the depth of the wreck at 220 ft below sea level, there were limited resources available to inspect the vessel,” said T&T Marine Vice President Kevin Teichman. “We assisted by mobilizing an ROV System capable of operating in 500 feet of water.”

The wooden passenger vessel was carrying 59 passengers and 15 crew members when it collided with a steel-hulled fishing boat and sank 2.8 miles northwest of Limbones Island. Twenty-four people were reported missing. T&T Marine conducted the survey aboard a Philippine Coast Guard vessel and completed operations in two days.
