Background on Mighty Servant 3
On the morning of December 6, 2006, the semisubmersible vessel Mighty Servant 3 developed a list and sank after the offloading of Transocean's semisubmersible drilling rig, GSF Aleutian Key. The vessel sank approximately one mile off the North Angolan coast to the sea bottom and was submerged in approximately 62 meters of water. Fortunately, all of the crew members aboard the vessel were rescued and returned home before Christmas.
In January 2007, Dockwise contracted SMIT Salvage to salvage the Mighty Servant 3. Dockwise chose Smit out of four competitors for their experience and the fact that they had equipment ready near the North Angolan coast, where the vessel was located at the sea bottom.
