BISSO MARINE : Rig Salvage

Since 1890, BISSO MARINE has been a leader in marine salvage operations in the United States. As a salvage contractor, BISSO MARINE has become synonymous with safety, service and reliability in the salvage world.

With respect to offshore drilling rig salvage operations; whether refloating, wreck removal or leg and can recoveries, BISSO MARINE has faced the many challenges of every manner of drilling rig. The nature of drilling rig salvages differs from conventional salvages since the customer is often held to the standards of the lease operator and therefore under the scrutiny of the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. As an offshore midstream contractor, BISSO MARINE is uniquely positioned to understand the sensitivities of salvage operations and can bridge the experience and knowledge gap between traditional underwrites, owners, operators and regulators.

In every operation, BISSO MARINE is totally committed to the safety, health and welfare of its team, its customers, and the environment. Having perfected its salvage and diving crafts in high currents and zero visibility of the Mississippi River over more than 100 years, BISSO MARINE has the skill and experience to work successfully in the most difficult marine environments. BISSO MARINE recognizes that marine casualties pose special risks to marine life and ecosystems and mitigates those risks through “control and containment.” The BISSO MARINE salvage philosophy is summed up with five simple rules: Zero Discharge! Total Recovery! Total Stop Work Authority! NO Failures to Communicate! NO Shortcuts!
