Neptune has recently supported SMIT Salvage’s project to remove the Harita Berlian 18 wreck with the provision of survey & ROV services in the Traffic Separation Scheme area of the Singapore Straits.
Neptune provided project management and a 7-man team to deliver the integrated services. Neptune’s survey team maintained surface positioning of the SMIT Cyclone crane barge and utilized Neptune’s proprietary NepSMART tug management system to maintain positioning of the Pacific Warlock, Pacific Viper and Pacific Valour support vessels.
In addition, Neptune’s ROV team operated the Swift work class ROV around the wreck to complete the required surveys using Blueview sonar and manipulators to conduct the work in securing rigging for the actual lift and recovery.
Neptune chief executive officer, Robin King said: “This project demonstrates Neptune’s ability to transfer skills and techniques from the oil and gas sector to benefit other diverse and complex sectors such as Salvage. In addition, this project showcased Neptune’s ability to offer cost-effective integrated Survey and ROV Services for time sensitive projects at short notice in the region.”
