ACSM SALVAGE & RESCUE

ACSM is internationally recognized in the field of deep ocean search and recovery. Our experience performing deep-water salvage and rescue operations dates back to 2007, when ACSM personnel aboard B/S Don Inda designed and oversaw the successful rescue operation of the fishing boat “Nuevo Pepita Aurora” wreckage, sank near Algeciras. With the assistance of two ROVs (Cherokee 02 and Argus), our personnel performed the ACSM -developed “Wolf Jaw” operation. It allowed the recovery of the wreckage from 140 m depth and transport it to a shallow area to enable divers access.That experience has given us the recognition to provide the service to SASEMAR, the Spanish Maritime Salvage and Rescue Agency, supporting them with ROV operations and personnel. Since 2009 we have participated in the Spanish Navy Maneuvers Cartago.

That experience has given us the recognition to provide the service to SASEMAR, the Spanish Maritime Salvage and Rescue Agency, supporting them with ROV operations and personnel. Since 2009 we have participated in the Spanish Navy Maneuvers Cartago.

Since that first operation, ACSM has participated in more than 15 search and recovery operations, providing quick response and turnkey services for the location and recovery of wreckages, ROVs or other underwater vehicles, aircrafts, vessel apparel, oceanographic instrumentation, archaeology sites, etc.

Our expertise is based in a concise study and plan prior to the mission in order to minimize the time and having the needed contingencies to guarantee a safe recovery. Our extended experience in logistics, offshore operations, data management and survey works has demonstrated its performance on multiple projects.
