Donjon working round the clock on Gulf clean up
Donjon Marine, Co., Inc., Hillside, N.J, continues to work round the clock in the Gulf Coast region on post-hurricane marine salvage
Donjon's 1,000-ton-capacity derrick barge the Chesapeake, the largest floating crane on the U.S. East Coast, was recently at work in Venice, Louisiana, lifting 85-foot fishing boats displaced by the hurricane.
While Donjon is the lead Salvage Contractor for the Katrina Response as a result of its U.S. Navy Salvage and Related Services Contract, the company has contracted many American Salvage Association (ASA) and non-ASA Marine Salvors in support of the overall response. ASA members T&T Marine, Resolve Marine, Bisso Marine, and Titan Maritime, as well as others, are busy in the region as salvage subcontractors to Donjon.
