Salvage and Wreck Removal Conference

Salvage and Wreck Conference London 2014 – sponsored by OVERDICK

Wednesday 10 December – Thursday 11 December 2014


OVERDICK has been involved in wreck removal and salvage projects since our establishment. Our strong naval and structural skills and experience are very useful for engineering ways to refloat stranded ships or in removing wrecks from difficult positions.


Identification of Failure

  • Failure diagnostics
  • Preparation of technical survey reports
  • Determination of failure mode and consequence evaluation

Concept Engineering

  • Quick response tender engineering
  • Determination of individual removal strategy based on external requirements and available salvage equipment
  • Multi-discipline feasibility studies

Structural Strength Analyses

  • Sea-fastening design and strength verifications
  • Lifting and rigging design and strength verifications
  • Longitudinal strength analysis
  • Linear and non-linear structural strength analyses, failure re-calculation
  • Progressive failure mode analyses

Hydrostatic & Hydrodynamic Analyses

  • Simulation of various floating and grounded problems in frequency and time domain
  • General RAO determination, motion and mooring analysis
  • Complex multi-body analyses
  • Stepwise static analyses for all kind of standard operations such as removal, par-buckling, lifting and re-floating
  • Flooding and blow down of tank simulations
  • Determination of wave and current forces on any floating and grounded structures

On-Site Services
