Excellence in Compliance

DONJON-SMIT

Experts in casualty response

Two premiere marine salvage and casualty responders

In December 2004, Donjon Marine Co., Inc. of Hillside, NJ and SMIT Salvage Americas, Inc. of Houston, TX, joined forces to create the DONJON-SMIT OPA-90 Alliance. Donjon and SMIT Salvage have committed their expertise and resources to the DONJON-SMIT joint venture to provide marine salvage, firefighting and lightering compliance and response services to all vessels trading in U.S. waters under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA-90) and related U.S. state regulations.

Whether responding to a grounding, a collision, a fire – whatever the nature of the casualty – DONJON-SMIT brings highly trained personnel, specialized state-of-the-art equipment, a strong commitment to environmental protection, and a results-oriented work ethic to every response.

DONJON-SMIT, with assets coast-to-coast, has established the 21st century standard of excellence in marine casualty response. With environmental protection as a top priority, the joint venture meets every challenge created by the complex U.S. regulatory framework.
