CDMS SSE LTD carries in stock over 350 tonnes of lifting bags. Our Commercial Divers teams have experience with all procedures of recovering a stricken vessel in fresh water rivers, estuaries, canals and at sea. Each project requires specific planning to eliminate the opposing obstacles inherent with this kind of work, before any progression with raising of a vessel can begin.

Wreck Bebris

Abandoned Vessels
The water ways of the UK are littered with old and abandoned vessels of different configurations and sizes.

Abandoned Vessels

Clearing the Watercourse
Abandoned vessels are a continuous annoyance to river authorities who regularly require CDMS SSE Ltd to remove these obstructions from the various rivers and canals throughout the UK.

Fire Damaged Vessels

Fire Damage
Vessels that have caught fire and sunk on our inner city river systems are also required to be salvaged and moved from the water course.

Preservation of Vessels for Inspection
In these situations vessels can be possible crime scenes and need to be handled carefully to eliminate disturbing any evidence for further evaluation of arson or electrical fault.
