Safety cover: salvage, marine pollution response and escort service
Gesmar has a solid, decades-long experience in salvage and marine pollution response.
Through its participation in Consorzio Castalia, Gesmar has also taken part in a number of important salvage and marine pollution response operations.
Consorzio Castalia, of which Gesmar is one of the founding members and one of the majority shareholders, brings together a number of Italian shipping companies working in the environmental field.
Consorzio Castalia is today the single most active company in the prevention and remediation of marine pollution in the Mediterranean
Gesmar Group has sought to construct harbour towage tugs that are also capable of providing an escort service for high tonnage ships.
Ship escort and pollution response services have an important social contribution. However it is also associated with high costs which the community is often, misguidedly, unwilling to meet.
Our escort tugs are among the very few vessels in the world certified as “escort”, after actual trials carried out using a motor tanker.
