Ocean Salvors And Crescent Towing Add Gulf Salvage Station

Ocean Salvors Company of New York, N.Y., and Crescent Towing and Salvage Company, Inc. of New Orleans, La., have jointly announced the establishment of a Gulf Coast salvage station in New Orleans.

Ocean Salvors, an expanding enterprise of two leading towing firms in the United States—Moran Towing Corporation of New York and Crowley Maritime Corporation of San Francisco — had previously established stations in Rahway, N.J. and Miami, Fla.

As on the East Coast stations, the New Orleans station will be equipped with hydraulic pumping units for petroleum lightering, conventional salvage pumps, air compressors, beach gear, and other salvage and oil pollution equipment. This modern equipment is maintained in a state of readiness for rapid response by salvage oil pollution strike teams providing capability for handling a full range of marine casualties.

Crescent Towing and Salvage Company's fleet of harbor and oceangoing tugs and barges will complement the fleets of Crowley and Moran operating in that area.

Since its formation in 1978, Ocean Salvors has expanded its staff of experienced salvage masters, oil pollution specialists, diving and salvage personnel, and modern equipment.

Ocean Salvors has conducted several major ship salvage and oil pollution control operations with the combined forces of affiliate companies.
