The Granite Project


In 1989,3300 tonnes of granite was salvaged from the SA Oranjeland (1974). This was the largest salvage operation undertaken on a sunken cargo in South Africa. The DSV “Plus Ultra” with it’s 20 tonne lifting “A” frame was specially built for this task. Two 20 tonne granite blocks straddle the moon-pool of Plus Ultra (left).

A few thousand tonnes of export grade granite awaits to be shipped to Rotterdam (right). A diver prepares submerged granite for lifting (bottom left).
