Salvage Support for Sunken Tug

Sweep being deployed within the contaiment boom to absorb the loose fuel

Global Diving & Salvage was contracted by a local dredge company to clean up oil spilled from a sunken tugboat near Pittsburg, CA. The Global crew deployed containment boom, sorbents, and a skimmer to contain and recover the oil that spilled from the tug. After the tug owner re-floated the vessel, Global crews defueled the vessel and removed over 3,000 gallons of oil and water from the bilge to a Baker tank onshore.
