Wijsmuller Salvage B.V., one of the world's foremost salvage companies, has joined forces with Offshore Tugs, Inc., the well-known offshore towage company from Golden Meadow, La., to establish a new company: Wijsmuller Salvage & Offshore Tugs, Inc.

The new company will provide complete salvage and towage services for the marine and offshore industry, including removal of offshore equipment, salvage services including cargo and wreck removal for environmental protection.

Wijsmuller Salvage, headquartered in Holland, brings an 80-year history of successful international salvage experience into the joint venture with Offshore Tugs, Inc., a company established by Nolty J.


In addition to a large inventory of highly specialized salvage equipment, which can be air-lifted to any location, the company will provide a large fleet of modern oceangoing tugs, especially equipped for towing, anchor handling and other offshore services. The company has also established relations with Blue Streak Marine, operator of 14 jackup maintenance vessels, and will rely on the extensive facilities and resources of Bell Pass Drydocks.

Management of the newly formed company will be directed by Joe Jullens, a professional with many years of experience in worldwide salvage.
