Aberdeenshire subsea firm gets deep in £145billion salvage operation

Aleron Subsea Technology, based in Aberdeenshire, recently took part in an Atlantic Ocean salvage project.

An ROV solutions company, Aleron were chosen by James Fisher Marine and Britannia’s Gold Ltd to assist with a high-profile salvage operation, targeting wrecks which were sunk during the First and Second World Wars.

It’s understood that during both conflicts 7,500 merchant ships were sunk, with 700 of those carrying gold shipments under UK Government direction.

Utilising their AUXROV subsea system, Aleron will undertake a number of salvage operations to recover targeted cargoes.

This inaugural salvage work scope takes place after 25 years of planning, and the successful completion of a significant crowdfunding campaign.

The AUXROV work scope comprised over 850 lifts, moving over 500 tonnes of debris with three different hydraulic grabs, and providing real time information on the grabbed materials.

Aleron Subsea Technical Director Mike Bisset commented: “This was a complex working environment within which the AUXROV has been able to demonstrate its value and efficiency.

“The system can be used for a vast range of subsea excavation, clearance, survey and tooling tasks and on this project, was able to demonstrate its capability.”
