Donjon Marine Co., Inc. has been awarded a $41 million-dollar, ceiling-priced, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-award-fee contract for marine salvage, salvage-related towing, harbor clearance, ocean engineering and point-to-point towing services to support the U.S. Navy’s Director of Ocean Engineering, Supervisor of Salvage and Diving.  In addition to the salvage component of this services agreement, Donjon was also awarded a contract to supply the U.S. Navy with Engineering Support Services on a worldwide basis.

“Donjon is very pleased to continue to partner with the U.S. Navy as its commercial marine salvage and engineering support contractor,” said J. Arnold Witte, President, Donjon Marine Co., Inc.  “We value the relationship we have developed with the Navy since Donjon was first awarded the Salvage Support Contract in 1979 and we stand ready to serve the needs of the U.S. Navy moving forward,” he continued.
