A portfolio of successful & technically challenging salvage operations

Pacific Towing maintains a dominant position as Melanesia’s leading marine salvage contractor. We have an unparalleled track record, having participated in well over 70 salvage operations over the last 20+ years.

Saving lives, assets & the environment

Unequalled fleet resources and alliances, both local and international, enable Pacific Towing to act swiftly and to assist professionally and effectively. Our salvage services save not only lives and assets but also our precious marine ecosystems. We utilise chartered and commercial aircraft for emergency transport of equipment and personnel while maintaining close relationships with a network of operators of tugs, barges, cranes and lightering vessels in Oceania and South East Asia.

A ‘24/7’ emergency response you can count on

We maintain specialised response equipment in Port Moresby providing environmentally responsible intervention solutions for marine oil or chemical spills. Our expert personnel and rigorously maintained equipment are in a state of ‘round the clock’ readiness to respond to marine casualties. International expert personnel, salvage masters and salvage teams (naval architects, supervisors, salvage divers and technicians) are also on call. This ensures a fast and professional emergency salvage response service regardless of the location and scope of the incident. We can mobilise a regional network of assets and resources to provide a rapid first response salvage service, irrespective of where you are in Oceania or South East Asia.

Wreck removal

In addition to emergency response salvage services, Pacific Towing is also highly experienced in wreck removal throughout Oceania and South East Asia. Minimizing environmental damage, freeing up vital waterways, as well as retrieving valuable cargo and recyclable materials are all benefits of Pacific Towing’s wreck removal service.
