ANCHOR CHAIN RECOVERY
BEVALDIA (Manager of the branches PSOMAKARA & GAMSRO) undertakes the underwater search & recovery (anchor recovery) of the anchor chain (in cases where the anchor is lost), having at its disposal advanced equipment, latest technology and highly trained technical staff. Also in cases where the anchor chain is tangled (in ropes, shipwrecks, metals), our company undertakes the disengagement of the chain and the total underwater anchor recovery.
Starting from the coordinates (position) given by the ship, our company conducts search using a magnetometer, which searches for metals in the underwater area and side scan sonar, for the recognition of the findings, achieving a quick underwater search & recovery of anchor and chain (cable). Lastly, the chain is recovered with the help of a floating crane and it is locked in position.
ANCHOR CHAIN LOSS
Many times the anchor can be stuck on the seabed due to a rock or sea pollution (metal objects that can be found on the seabed, such as the port of Piraeus), it detaches from the ship and gets lost.
In cases where the anchor is lost, the cost of buying a new one is high, therefore the underwater search & recovery anchor chain (cable), is the most direct and economical solution.
