arrowJ A Rederiet has successfully completed a salvage operation of the German 1coaster Nordland I, built in 1962, which has been standing high and dry on the beach of the German island Borkum in the Waddenzee. The small coaster, 349 DWT, was driven ashore in a storm three weeks ago. The vessel was declared a Constructive Total Loss and was only a few days away from the breakers’ torch. But J A Rederiet arrived on the scene and dragged the vessel back into the water by using their multirole salvage vessel Susanne A. The operation took little more than a day and the coaster is now moored safely at the Borkum ferry port. The vessel’s owner has been very keen on a salvage operation as it is not possible to buy a replacement vessel to serve the islands in the Waddenzee with a number of small harbours with shallow water.
   “The ship’s owner was a really happy man yesterday afternoon”, says CEO Jens Alfastsen.Separator
