Donjon Marine digs archaeology

October 26 - Well known for its heavy lift services, Donjon Marine has been awarded two separate contracts for salvage work on archaeological sites in Texas and New York.

The US Navy has awarded an archeological site removal contract to Donjon to perform diving, clam-shell dredging and wreck removal services to a Civil War gunboat - the USS Westfield - that blew up during an attempt to scuttle the vessel immediately after the Battle of Galveston in 1863. The sunken vessel lies in 40 feet of water in Galveston Bay in Texas.

The company has also won a second contract to remove the sunken Ellis Island Ferry that was used to transport immigrants to and from Ellis Island's processing facility in New York. To be performed in conjunction with the U.S. National Park Service, Donjon will begin work the last week of October to first perform a dive survey to determine the location of three separate pieces of the ferry to be removed and redelivered.
