Specific diving operations, lightening and refloating wrecks are major challenges facing environmental and safety issues and complying with European and French regulations.

In partnership with renowned companies, SaeOwl is now one of the only French players capable of offering a turnkey solution to maritime works requiring technical resources and specialized human resources.

Our salvage masters take care of different aspects of the operations, provide technical analysis and play an essential role of link and advice between the French authorities and the representatives and owners of the vessel.


Chartered by the French Government as part of coastal protection, our ships can deploy the French Navy's heavy pollution response resources jointly implemented with CEPPOL experts and men from the Pollution Control Cells of the naval bases of Brest and Toulon.
