Westshore Quadrant Shiploader Recovery 2238

KWH was the only contractor called by our client, on a three-hour notice, to salvage two shiploaders that were seriously damaged during a severe storm. KWH used both water and land based cranes, together with diver support to salvage the loaders in large sections. All crews worked seven days a week on an aggressive schedule.

Our team of engineers and field experts swiftly developed plans and weight take-offs for a safe and expeditious salvage operation. Due to unstable orientations and loadings on the semi-collapsed structure, extra care and planning was required to ensure every piece was rigged and cut free to prevent any additional collapse or damage
