IMarEST Ship Salvage Conference
Salvage past, present and future: Lessons learned and challenges ahead

Following the success of January’s Joint meeting with IESIS, WES, IMechE, RINA on the raising of The Costa Concordia, IMarEST will be holding a day long look at ship salvage.

The day splits into two lecture style sessions, the first, a case study on Salvaging the Amoco Cadiz, a vessel that ran aground in 1978. Causing one of largest spill of its kind at that time and an unprecedented environmental catastrophe. The session looks at the chain of events leading up to the sinking and subsequent salvage of the vessel before other presentations compare contemporary regulations, safety measures and salvage techniques to those at the time of Cadiz and consider whether things would turn out differently if a similar incident occurred today.

The second session looks at the rise of ultra large container ships and the potential problems posed by salvaging one of these vessels. This session looks at how such a salvage operation might be conducted and the sort of equipment and techniques required. It will also consider whether current regulations and safety procedures are up to preventing such disasters. The session will also address the potential environmental impact and implications for vessel insurance.
