DUC Marine and KOOLE join forces
KOOLE Mammoet Salvage and DUC Marine Group have combined forces for future salvage and wreck removal operations.
DUC will be responsible for all diving activities relating to salvage operations and diving equipment maintenance.
Henk Kapitein, CEO of DUC Marine Group, said: “This acquisition is an important step in realising our ambition to become a medium-sized global operator in the marine industry. KOOLE’s state-of-the-art salvage equipment is active around the globe, which enables us to expand our activities worldwide.”
He added: “Together with our new-built DP-2 MPSV “Solution”, which was taken into service in June this year, this acquisition will enhance DUC Marine Group’s services, especially in the salvage sector.”
The chairmen of KOOLE and DUC Marine Group feel confident this cooperation will complement and reinforce their activities in maritime wreck removal and salvage, combining both companies’ strengths, qualities and experience in a shared no-nonsense and pragmatic approach.
KOOLE has developed into an international maritime service and solution provider, it has led to multiple successful projects all over the world.
“Diving is not our expertise and it requires highly specialised skills to maintain our diving equipment in optimal condition. We are pleased with the cooperation with DUC, explained Paul Koole, owner of KOOLE Mammoet Salvage.
