Our Services


DONJON-SMIT’s highly trained and experienced salvage teams are geared up for instant round-the-clock response, anywhere in the U.S., no matter how remote the location.


Expertise is critical in emergency ship-to-ship lightering. Following international protocols and procedures, expe- rienced DONJON-SMIT salvage teams execute carefully engineered lightering plans safely and efficiently, using purpose-built DONJON-SMIT equipment, fendering, diesel hydraulic-driven pumps, and portable inert gas generators.

Marine Firefighting

Marine firefighting tactics are carefully tailored to minimize damage to the vessel and the marine environment. Marine firefighting is a key element in DONJON-SMIT’s emergency response capability.

Emergency Towing

No Injuries, No Accidents

Safety is a core value and a top priority at our company. It has to be given the nature of the high-risk salvage business. There are no compromises.

Environmental Care

Wrecks can be full of pollutants and present a significant threat to the marine environment. Our multidisciplinary teams have prevented millions of tons of oils, chemicals and bunkers from being spilled.


Drills and Exercises

Vessel Response Plans require shipping companies to perform readiness drills.  DONJON-SMIT has you covered.
