DUC Marine Group and KOOLE Mammoet Salvage have reached an agreement to combine thier resources for salvage and wreck removal operations. DUC will be responsible for all diving activities relating to salvage operations and diving equipment maintenance.
The chairmen of KOOLE and DUC Marine Group said they feel confident that their cooperation "will complement and reinforce their activities in maritime wreck removal and salvage, combining both companies’ strengths, qualities and experience in a shared no-nonsense and pragmatic approach."
Henk Kapitein, CEO of DUC Marine Group, said: "This is an important step in realising our ambition to become a medium-sized global operator in the marine industry. KOOLE’s state-of-the-art salvage equipment is active around the globe, which enables us to expand our activities worldwide. Together with our newbuild DP2 MPSV Solution, which entered service in June this year, this deal will enhance DUC Marine Group’s services, especially in the salvage sector.”
“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,” said Paul Koole, owner of KOOLE Mammoet Salvage.
