NEPTUN's HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT


NEPTUN was established in 1870 under the name of BERGNINGS- OCH DYKERIAKTIEBOLAGET NEPTUN (SALVAGE AND DIVING COMPANY NEPTUN).

From a proud past as a major salvage contractor the company diversified into general marine contracting work.

The experience and skill gained during work in harsh environmental conditions have been further developed to meet the demands from the marine industry and from the offshore industry in particular.

Wasa transport


NEPTUN record covers 130 years of operation and includes such spectacular tasks as

-The salvage of the ancient warship VASA that had been laying at the bottom of the sea since 1628. She was raised by Neptun in April 1961.
In December 1988 we finalised the work by transporting and docking VASA into the new
VASA Maritime Museum. 

-Transport of the integrated deck for theGullfaks C platform in Norway. The weight was 48.700 t and this is the heaviest object ever transported on water. NEPTUN has earlier undertaken similar operations for other major platforms in Norway

-Removal of 21 ships that had been sunk in the Suez-canal
Gullfaks C deck transport

-Removal of 20 ships that had been sunk within the harbour of Port of Spain, Trinidad.

-Laying of a submarine power cable (90 km of 90 mm dia) between the mainland of Sweden and the island of Gotland.

-Lifting of a giant floating dock in Norway (36.000 t) for repair after she had been heavily damaged during transport.

Most projects have been carried out in remote areas under hostile conditions and reflect NEPTUN's ability to combine the use of specialised equipment and modern offshore technology with locally available resources.

NEPTUN offer the experience and the unique know-how of technical and nautical experts trained during NEPTUN's world-wide operations.  

As managers and engineers, NEPTUN combines all the necessary resources to execute marine projects of multi discipline character.

NE provide marine contracting related management and engineering services as consultants.
