1. Providing the services listed above to clients as described below.
2. The group has taken part in many successful salvage, pollution control and abatement operations and diving services during the past thirty years: -


CASTILLO DE BELLVER

06 August 1983 - Caught fire off Saldanah Bay en route from the Persian Gulf to Spain. Resulting inferno eventually broke the tanker in two and faced South Africa with the worst marine pollution threat in its history. Salvors secured a towline to the bow section of the burned out supertanker towering 20 m above the oil-laden sea so that the hulk with its deadly cargo of crude oil could be towed as far away from the coast as possible, subsequently Atlatech scuttled the wreck in a controlled manner to minimize pollution.view images

All tanks on the tugs were then cleaned and reinstated into their original condition.


M/V TRANSPORTER

12 January 2005. An underwater propeller inspection on behalf of Norbulk Shipping of Glasgow was carried out on the vessel. The inspection showed a wire rope (ą 35m) entangled around the shaft. The wire caused extensive damage to the rope guard and some damage to one of the propeller blades. Due to oil leaking from the stern seal it was evident that the seal itself had been damaged. At this stage a photographic survey was carried out. It was decided to attempt to remove the rope guard and wire using hydraulic grinders. An underwater video survey was carried out in the presence of the vessels superintendent. It seemed from the video that removing the rope guard and wire would not solve the problem, as there appeared to be extensive damage to the seals. At this stage all diving work ceased and arrangements were made for the vessel to proceed to dry dock.


IRAN RAJAI

17th – 23rd February 2005. Carried out an inspection in Saldanha Bay to determine the extent of damage to the No.5 centre double bottom tank. A crack approximately 1.2 metres long was located approximately 2 metres inboard of the bilge keel. It was agreed to fit cofferdams over the crack and do the entire repair work internally. After the divers cleaned the area around the crack a second crack measuring approximately 80 cm long was located 800 mm inboard of first crack. Cofferdams were manufactured in Cape Town and transported to vessel in Saldanha Bay. It was established that due to the indentation on the hull, affecting both cracks, the suction on the cofferdam was insufficient to compress the rubber enough to affect a permanent seal. It was decided that two small steel cofferdams would be constructed and fixed to the hull by strong backs through the hull. Once tightened the rubber would compress to seal the 20 mm gap caused by the indentation. Both cracks were sealed and the cracks welded internally. The ends of both cracks were drilled to prevent propagation. A doubler was welded over the repair and the vessel departed Saldanha Bay on the 23rd February.


M/V COTSWOLD

10th –13th April 2005. Atlatech Divers & Salvors were appointed by Stone Manganese Marine Shipcare Ltd to attend the fully laden bulk carrier to carry out cropping of the propeller to reduce excessive shaft vibration. The original inspection carried out in Brazil showed a four bladed propeller with damage to three blades. On our arrival at the vessel, anchored 14 miles from Sandy Point in St. Helena Bay, our inspection found a five bladed propeller with damage to all five blades. Under the supervision of a SMMS representative approximately 54 kgs were cut off the blade showing the most damage. The two opposing blades were then cropped in order to balance the propeller. A total of 120 kgs were cropped from the propeller.
