WANTED TO SALVAGE THE MOST Honoured
For many etched in memory. In 2001, a consortium of two Dutch companies, Mammoet and Smit International, acquired the contract to salvage the nuclear submarine Kursk. Mammoet has developed a lifting system to lift the wreck from its position 100 meters below the surface of the Barents Sea.
The hoisting mechanism of Mammoet was placed on the Giant 4, a pontoon of Smit, which was normally used for the transportation of oil rigs. WANTED has been able to make a valuable contribution to the construction of the hoisting mechanism and can look back till this day to an honorable commitment of its technical staff.
