Donjon makes progress on Fedra removal

June 29 - Off Gibraltar, Donjon Marine continues work on the wreck removal and disposal of the remnants of the Fedra which grounded and partially sank during a storm late last year.

Last month, Donjon Marine commenced site operations and with support from local subcontractors, performed vessel remediation as well as pre-cutting portions of the remaining deck house, stack and decking in preparation for the arrival of Donjon's main wreck removal flotilla, which includes the company's 400-ton capacity derrick barge Columbia, New York, material barge Witte 1404 and 7000HP attendant tug Atlantic Salvor.

The initial focus is on the removal of all topside deck and remaining structures. Donjon Marine will deploy underwater burning, and use a chopper beam as well as chain cutting to remove what remains of the ship.

New Jersey-based, Donjon Marine is a provider of multi-faceted marine services including marine salvage, heavy lift, dredging and related emergency response operations.
