Smit Salvage secures orders for USD 70 million in one month

Svitzer competitor Smit Salvage, subsidiary of Dutch Boskalis, managed to secure contracts for around USD 70 million in just one month. Most recently in Angola.

Dutch salvage company Smit Salvage, under the Boskalis Group, has won a contract for the company to raise a defunct jack-up platform that sank to the bottom in July 2013 off the coast of Angola, says the company in a press release.

During the installation of the platform near a so-called pigging platform, the unit took an unfortunate hit, after which it broke and sank 30 meters to the bottom. The contract to raise the platform follows a period of extensive surveys of the location, and other preparatory measures performed by the Boskalis investigative unit as well as Smit Salvage in September 2013.
