Derelict Vessel Removal 2019

Gladstone, Queensland

Salvage of Ship’s Anchor

Special Purpose Vessel ‘Pacific Conquest’ was commissioned on a “No Cure – No Pay” basis to salvage a lost 10T ship’s anchor off Gladstone. The anchor was easily located in 20m of water using a combination of side scan sonar, multi-beam sonar, and magnetometer. The dive team were then deployed to attach lifting equipment, and the anchor was retrieved using the Pacific Conquest deck winch and rear a-frame.
