ACI’s Ship Salvage and Casualty Response will provide an in depth look into the salvage industry examining the legal and contractual issues that are crucial in understanding how to carry out any successful salvage operation.

This event is of high importance to all stakeholders within the maritime salvage industry who aim to maintain quality and efficiency in their operations. Misapplication and bad practice during a ship casualty can have extremely high costs detrimental to all involved and the loss of vessel, cargo or risks of environmental damage are too great to leave to chance. A company’s integrity is judged on track record and reputation which are vital in earning contracts. This meeting will explore all the key drivers behind effective and competitive operations that help securing these contracts.
