ANCHOR CHAIN RECOVERY
PSOMAKARA Diving Services & Consulting Co undertakes the underwater search & 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.
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
A frequent problem encountered in ships, is the loss of anchor chain (cable) especially in areas with rocky seabed. 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.
