ISEAS successfully completed salvage of a supply vessel from the seabed at Port Khalid, Sharjah. The Project was carried out during 2nd week of August 2014 using salvage lifting equipment and heavy duty lift air bags with the assistance of the port supplied tug & cranes. The vessel “SEA GULF” was raised from the seabed and moved from its laid position under a rig where it had settled beneath after sinking. The vessel was then brought to the surface and moved to the quay side with assistance of the port supplied tug, where supporting strops were attached to the vessel by divers, working in conjunction with rigging and crane operators.
After securing the vessel to the cranes at the quay side, salvage pump was installed by ISEAS team to remove sea water from the hull, and have the vessel free floating on the surface next to the quay wall. The hull was than inspected by the dive team and a hole in the hull was found and plugged with a temporary wooden wedge to make the hull watertight, the remaining water was then pumped out. Once the vessel was afloat on its own all the rigging was then removed prior to handing over the vessel to the Client/Owners. ISEAS dive team and the Port personnel worked in unison to bring a successful and safe conclusion to this salvage project, allowing the Port to be once again fully functional.

Every year, organizations around the world take advantage of their country’s version of National Volunteer Week and the enhanced publicity that comes with it, hosting lunches, dinners, teas, ice cream socials, etc., in honor of their volunteers. …These types of events are considered formal recognition, meaning they are planned, institutionalized actions that happen on a repeating schedule, usually on an annual basis. As the name implies, formal recognition is something that is sanctioned by the organization and, by its very nature, often leaves little room for spontaneity. By contrast, informal recognition is all about the small, everyday gestures one does to express gratitude for other people. Rather than being an event that the organization arranges, it’s an action initiated by a supervisor or co-worker and is more personal and spontaneous in nature. …Such informal validations, which are always personal in nature, reinforce the vital concept that the most vibrant and resilient organizations are made up of individuals, coming together and sharing their unique strengths.
