Royal rescue for Donjon Marine

August 29 - Donjon Marine Co has salvaged and returned to its owner the passenger ferry, Royal Miss Belmar, which grounded on approach to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, in early July.

Donjon mobilised its 400-tonne capacity derrick barge Columbia, NY to the site with its 3000-HP tug Mary Alice to lift the vessel from its grounded position. The recovered vessel was then loaded onto the deck of the Columbia, NY, lashed for seaworthiness, and successfully delivered to Savannah, Georgia, where the vessel was transloaded to a local shipyard facility for repair. Donjon successfully redelivered the vessel as planned last week.

"This job is another example of Donjon's varied capability and willingness to do whatever is necessary to successfully support the needs of an owner and his/her underwriters," said John A. Witte, Jr., executive vice president, Donjon Marine Co., Inc.

Donjon Marine provides a various marine services, including dredging, marine salvage, heavy lift transport, tug/barge transportation, demolition, pollution control and remediation, shipbuilding and repair, as well as land-based metals recycling, demolition and landfill remediation/site management. Based in New York and New Jersey, Donjon and its affiliates maintain offices, assets and personnel throughout the Northeast, with operations spanning the globe.
