Wreck removal of Fishing Vessel HL257 ACHIEVE
Fishing Vessel HL257 ACHIEVE sank just outside the Newcastle port entrance on the English east coast. The vessel, small in size being only 10 meters in length, sank to 15[m] water depth. Although our salvage spread of large LIEBHERR HS985 crane and K9127 barge, dwarfed the sunken fishing vessel, the challenge for removal was similar to wreck removal projects with larger vessels. Due to weather and current, the wreck had been shattered in many pieces. Regardless the seabed had to be cleared of any debris. KOOLE has successfully identified and removed all wreck and debris pieces in a combined diving and lifting operation, to the satisfaction of our customer.
