Titan Salvage honored for Costa Concordia work

The North American Marine Environment Protection Association said Houston-based Titan Salvage, a subsidiary of Crowley Maritime Corp., is the recipient of its 2014 Corporate Marine Environment Protection Award.

The award recognizes Titan’s active approach toward protecting and preserving the oceans.

“Titan is committed to ensuring the safety of our people, the public and the environment,” vice president Chris Peterson said in a statement. “This accolade is a testament to our mission. We are both humbled and honored to receive NAMEPA’s Corporate Marine Environment Protection Award and look forward to participating in NAMEPA’s annual conference later this year.”

Peterson will accept the award at association’s New York City conference on Oct. 29.

Earlier this year, Titan marked the completion of the largest maritime salvage job in history when the Costa Concordia cruise ship that wrecked off Giglio Island, Italy, in January 2012, was safely moored at the Port of Genoa Voltri, Italy.

The project required 48,000 engineering man-hours and 1,200 total workers and more than 22,000 dives totaling 30,000 hours.
