Full Members

Full members of the ISU are companies and organisations that are active as main contractors and have a track record of providing successful salvage services. The ISU has some 55 full members worldwide. Applicants for membership must be supported by at least two existing ISU full members.

Membership of the ISU confers a mark of professional respect and competence and ISU members may use the ISU logo on their corporate marketing and business materials.

Membership of the ISU demonstrates good standing with other salvors; shipowners and their insurers as well as with other marine professionals.

ISU members receive a listing in the ISU website and are entitled to have their news published in the widely distributed and well-regarded quarterly newsletter, Salvage World.

Members may attend the annual meeting of the association and help to shape policy regarding the business and legal frameworks and practice of salvage and wreck removal. It is also an excellent networking opportunity allowing members to meet and re-establish existing relationships and make new contacts.

ISU also produces an annual associate members’ conference with a programme of relevant speakers and the chance to meet other full members and associate and affiliate members at no cost.

Members are expected to abide by the ISU Code of Conduct and there is a disciplinary process to deal with issues and disputes.

Membership fees are kept as low as possible and are reviewed regularly.   

Associate Members

The ISU is also open to associate membership. Associate members are typically organisations which do not provide salvage services directly but which support the industry or have an interest in it. They include marine consultancies, liability and property insurers and brokers; marine law firms, national response organisations and others with an interest in salvage, pollution prevention and wreck removal services.

ISU associate members receive a listing on the ISU website and are entitled to have their news published in the widely distributed and well-regarded quarterly newsletter, Salvage World.

Two representatives of each associate member may attend the annual ISU associate members’ conference at no cost with the opportunity to hear about current issues and to meet and engage with full members.

Associate membership fees are modest and formal applications are considered by the Executive Committee.

Affiliate Members 

Affiliate membership is open to non-commercial organisations with an interest in marine salvage and are usually similar shipping industry trade associations. There is no fee for affiliate members and requests to join this category of membership are considered on a case by case basis with no formal application process.

There are some 80 associate and affiliate members of the ISU.

The post of Secretary of State’s Representative (SOSREP) was established as part of the UK Government’s response to Lord Donaldson’s review of salvage, intervention and command and control.
On behalf of the Secretary of State, the SOSREP oversees, controls and, if necessary, intervenes to exercise “ultimate command and control”. He acts in the overriding interest of the UK in salvage operations in UK waters involving vessels or fixed platforms, where there is significant risk of pollution. Adoption of this approach represents an international first for the UK.
Whilst completely independent, the SOSREP is based at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) Headquarters in Southampton and relies upon the resources provided by the agency. The MCA is responsible throughout the UK for implementing the Government’s maritime safety policy. This includes co-ordinating search and rescue at sea (through Her Majesty’s Coastguard) and ensuring that ships meet UK and international safety rules. The MCA works to prevent the loss of lives at the coast and at sea, to ensure that ships are safe and to prevent coastal pollution.

Safety of people, protection of the environment and the prevention of oil spills are the most important parts of almost every salvage operation. There is a distinct need for more information from a salvage site. In addition to motion monitoring and hull integrity assessment of the casualty, environmental data can provide important information during a salvage operation.
Our motion monitoring equipment provides the salvers with valuable information about the structural integrity and motion of the casualty. We measure, collect and interpret this motion data. If required we can provide independent advice and/or reporting to salvers, owners, authorities, P&I clubs and other parties involved. In addition to the motion monitoring equipment, we offer a “one stop shop” for related environmental services and measurements: wind and waves, currents, tide, subsea survey etc.

Solis Marine was established in the UK and Singapore in 2012 to provide independent expert advice on maritime and shipping incidents. A third office was opened in Hong Kong in 2013 to expand on operations in the region and to extend the range of services and expertise provided by the organisation.

In 2017 Solis Marine expanded into China with an office based in Shanghai further developing our presence in the Asia Pacific region. Senior consultants have all given expert evidence in Court and Solis Marine also has three Special Casualty Representatives on the panel at Lloyd’s who have been heavily involved in a number of high profile and politically sensitive wreck removal and salvage operations. Naval architects all have practical salvage and wreck removal experience working both on behalf of vessel owners / insurers as well as for salvors directly.
Expert reports have been prepared for court and arbitration hearings on collisions, groundings, tugs and manoeuvring, unsafe ports and berths, cargo issues, passage planning, personal injury, vessel operations, prudent seamanship and damage to submarine pipelines.
