Used world-wide for marine salvage operations, the Salvage Kit is a proven concept for the temporary, quick and reliable repair of damage from groundings or collisions while the ship is afloat.
The FlexiShape Miko Plaster® which is included in the kit, 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 towed to safety while retaining oil on the inside and water on the outside.
