Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Resolve Marine Group will acquire Magone Marine Services of Alaska. The deal combines the local expertise of Magone Marine’s Alaskan salvors with the extensive resources, personnel and vast salvage and wreck removal experience of Resolve Marine. This new business will be named Resolve-Magone Marine Services (Alaska) and coincides with increased vessel traffic now in the environmentally-sensitive Aleutian chain.
The partnership will be homeported at Dutch Harbor, Alaska, where Magone Marine is based. Magone Marine’s founder, Dan Magone, will continue overseeing operations. Resolve has relocated two vessels to augment Magone’s fleet in Alaska: the salvage tug, Resolve Pioneer, which has an 80-ton bollard pull capability, and the salvage barge RMG 300, which has a 450-ton capacity crane.
