While remaining integral to our company, emergency response and wreck removal will be part of a wider ecosystem of services. We have come together to build a more modern and effective offering for the maritime and offshore sector.
Ardent is the merger of Svitzer Salvage and Titan Salvage. Ardent was created in 2015 to offer a comprehensive solution to the maritime industry. We will achieve this by diversifying our services from traditional salvage to a full range of emergency management services, project related work, offshore decommissioning and underwater services.
VISION and MISSION
Ardent's efforts are directed by guiding principles that reveal the company's purpose and values.
These principles form the basis for all business behaviour and decisions.
Protecting the interest of our customers and the environment through applied ingenuity.
We are Ardent, a leading services company with a strong network, delivering effective & innovative solutions to our customers in the shipping and offshore industries. We aim to be the trusted partner in challenging circumstances.
The safety of people, the environment and property is our paramount concern.
We use our combined experience and know-how to find the most cost effective and time sensitive solution to any challenge, big or small.
We work side by side with our stakeholders before, during and after every engagement.
We continuously challenge ourselves to operate more effectively for mutual benefit.
The Long Haul
We look beyond immediate concerns to safeguard the long-term interests of our clients, the industry and the environment.
We assess every job carefully beforehand. No project should lead us to situations that put our crew's safety and well being at risk.
HEALTH, SAFETY, ENVIRONMENT AND QUALITY
Our prime objective is to protect our customers’ interest. To achieve that, Ardent manages the quality, environmental and health and safety aspects of its business in a structured and systematic manner. This makes us a trusted partner.
SAFETY FIRST. ALL THE TIME
The marine environment rarely gives anyone a second chance. So we need to get our job done safe and right first time, every time. And because we operate globally, we know we have to be ready for anything.
Our employees are competent and well prepared to identify and reduce risks associated with their work. We use what “applied ingenuity” – the ability to adapt to changing conditions to stay safe, effective and always in control.
A WORLD OF KNOWLEDGE
As a global operator, we know every location has unique risks and opportunities. We work closely with local partners to ensure their safety standards are compatible with our expectations.
THE FOREFRONT OF ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
We are always aware of the potential impact a casualty can have on the environment. We understand the responsibility of reducing that impact. Whether it be by preventing waste, containing pollutants and reusing or recycling materials; we make every effort to ensure everything we do is both sustainable and responsible. We have the capabilities and experience of preventing harmful pollutants from spilling into the environment, backed up by our decades long track record.
