Aleron Subsea Technology in Salvage Operation

Aberdeenshire-based Aleron Subsea has deployed AUXROV subsea system as a part of a wrecks salvage project in the Atlantic Ocean.

Aleron’s AUXROV was selected by James Fisher Marine and Britannia’s Gold to assist with the salvage operation, targeting wrecks that were sunk during the WWI and WWII.

During both wars, some 7,500 merchant ships were sunk of which approximately 700 were identified as carrying shipments of gold under UK Government direction.

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.

During simultaneous operations with two work class ROV systems, it then provided power and assistance in dredging operations on the wreck.
