Refloating of ships
Miko Marine offers the tools for quick and safe refloating of grounded, collided or otherwise damaged ships. The Salvage Kit and the FlexiShape Miko Plaster® is a proven concept for the temporary, quick and reliable repair of damage from groundings or collisions while the ship is afloat.
FlexiShape Miko Plaster is designed to overcome uneven steel surfaces, sharp edges and large areas of damage to the hull.
The Kevlar-reinforced patches are stapled to the hull using either the Underwater Fastener or the Miko Fix. The Underwater Fastener uses waterproof barrels to drive nails into the steel. Miko Fix is a battery-powered underwater in a magnetic jig that uses self-tapping screws.
Once the patch is installed the vessel can be refloated and towed to safety while retaining oil on the inside and water on the outside.
The standard Salvage Kit contains a set of patches, fasteners, magnets and supplementary tools to cover most typical damage scenarios. But a customized kit can be assembled and delivered on site on short notice to meet each customer’s needs. Custom-sized patches can also be supplied upon request.
