Miami, Florida, USA

The 35,000-ton container vessel MV CONTI SEATTLE ran hard aground when it lost steering while entering the port of Miami. Vessel was effectively blocking the Miami, Florida channel. RESOLVE mobilized salvage team and equipment and lightered 500 tons of containers, de-ballasted the vessel, and re-floated the vessel using 5 tugs. All accomplished within 19 hours of being hired.
