The United States Coast Guard tugboat Tiger sank at her mooring at the Richmond Historical Pier in California. Global responded with 4 boats,2 skimmers,boom,and spill response materials to contain and remove the released containments.
Global was contracted to continue the salvage operations,utilizing an innovative plywood freeboard panel concept in an effort to refloat the Tiger.
Global mobilized salvage gear,an excavator,bulldozer,and waste bins to the site. A containment pit was dug in the sand upland from the wreck,and lined with 60 mil HDPE,and was then backfilled with sand. Sections of the boat will be pulled up into the containment pit to prevent pollutants from leaking into the sand beneath the liner. After the vessel has been demolished and transported for disposal,the beach will be cleaned,including any contaminated sand on the liner,and the liner will be removed. The beach will be graded back to its pre-existing condition prior to demolition.
