The Netherlands-based companies DUC Marine Group and KOOLE Mammoet Salvage have reached an agreement to jointly tackle future salvage and wreck removal operations.
Under the agreement, DUC will be responsible for all diving activities related to salvage operations and diving equipment maintenance.
“Together with our new-built DP-2 MPSV ‘Solution’, which was taken into service in June this year, this acquisition will enhance DUC Marine Group’s services, especially in the salvage sector,” Henk Kapitein, CEO of DUC Marine Group said.
“Diving is not our expertise and it requires highly specialised skills to maintain our diving equipment in optimal condition. We are pleased with the cooperation with DUC,” Paul Koole, owner of KOOLE Mammoet Salvage, added.
Established 30 years ago, DUC Marine Group developed into a marine contractor and offshore construction services provider, supplying mainly to offshore renewable energy, oil and gas industry, maritime projects, salvage projects and large inshore projects.
KOOLE Mammoet Salvage, part of KOOLE, operates in the field of maritime wreck removal and salvage.
