Salvage & Towage
Whilst not a traditional salvor at the outset, through our network profile and capabilities, we were contacted to assist in the immediate aftermath of the RENA grounding in October 2011. We quickly secured three major contracts, providing 10400BHP AHTS
GO Canopus to Svitzer / SMIT salvage teams, Shoreside Management Services and Marine Services Provider with Braemar Howells. During the RENA, we scaled up from 12 personnel to 250 at the height of operations. UNIMAR are now the only NZ company who has a membership of the International Salvage Union – ISU. Our towage services is a new operation and we are promoting coastal and trans-Tasman Tug & Barge services with our Australian strategic partner Pacific Tug of Brisbane.
